Bernice Berates a Bigot
You say that I'm a man.
You seem to think you can
Determine who I am.
Here's my reaction: Scram!

Bernice Berates a Bigot is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
