freestyle sonnet #085: THE CREEPING WHITENESS

The creeping whiteness is never called out, because 
it behaves along progressive paths, attempting 
to atone for tone dead ancestors who wrote laws 
so oppressive, hoping atonement's exempting 

them from repercussions, except still this creeping 
whiteness remains supremely confident it knows 
better than lessers, those nonprogressers too sleeping 
to become woke. The unbroke whiteness makes great shows 

of solidarity with poverty class POCs, 
and even well-off POCs become assimilated 
into creeping whiteness as modern paradox 
to black-or-white perceptions thus nation-stated. 

Obvious white supremacy complemented 
by left-hand creeping whiteness just as demented.
