** spoiler alert ** By what sends/the white kids/I ain't sent:/I know I can't/be President. from Children's Rhymes.
a couple pages earlier is a poem about the Birmingham church bombing. i wish Hughes knew that we have a black president and that a few years ago we had as Secretary of State, a Sunday School friend of one of the little girls killed in the church bombing.
