PERCENTAGE POEM (For My Daughter)
To Don Imus
According to Statistics
And United Press
You as a Black female
Have a 7% Chance of going to College
A 3% chance of attaining happiness.
And a 42% Chance of dying young From stress.
A 12% Chance of having three children
Before the age of Twenty-one.
Associated Press even tossed in
A 74% chance of you having to Father your sons.
And Reuters gives you a Twenty-four percent chance
Of being a whore
So when you see statistics like these
Tear them up, move on and ignore.
