From Empire: Discrimination Triolet

5

How long am I supposed to sing in only a minor key?
Not half-, not bi-; not pre-, not post-; not black, not fair—
Though my mind and tongue, my heart can trill as fluently.
How long am I supposed to sing in only a minor key?
When installed to office finally, it’s almost always grudgingly:
always one more checkpoint for those neither here nor there.
How long am I supposed to sing in only a minor key?
Not half-, not bi-; not pre-, not post-; not black, not fair.
