Negress In Notre Dame Analysis

When I attended Mass today

A coloured maid sat down by me,

And as I watched her kneel and pray,

Her reverence was good to see.

For whether there may be or no'

A merciful and mighty God,

The love for Him is like a glow

That glorifies the meanest clod.

And then a starched and snotty dame

Who sat the other side of me

Said: "Monsieur, is it not a shame

Such things should be allowed to be?

In my homeland, I'm proud to say,

We know to handle niggers right,

And wouldn't let a black wench pray

And worship God beside a white."

Her tone so tart bewilderd me,

For I am just a simple man.

A friend in every one I see,

Though yellow, brown or black and tan.

For I would father children five

With any comely coloured maid,

And lush with any man alive,

Of any race, of any shade.

Religion may be false or true,

The Churches may be wrong or right,

But if there be the Faith in you

It can be like a shining light.

And though I lack not piety

And pray my best, I'm sure that God

To that black wench and not to me

Would give his most approving nod.

Aye, you may scrub him day and night,

You'll never change a nigger's hide;

But maybe he is just as white,

(Or even more) than you...inside.
