I, Too, Sing America by Langston Hughes
Tomorrow, I'll be at the table When company
comes. Nobody'll dare Say to me, "Eat in the
kitchen," Then. Besides, They'll see how
beautiful I am And be ashamed-- I, too, am
America.
I, too, sing America. I am the darker
brother. They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes, But I laugh, And eat well,
And grow strong.
