   Words ... The Power
In South Africa
tribes of blacks
fight against each other.

"Hate multiplies hate."

The fighting tribes
jeopardize the abolition
of apartheid.

"Adding deeper darkness to
a night already devoid of stars."

In the United States
Gangs of young blacks
fight over territory.

"Toughness multiplies toughness."

The fighting gangs
raise the death
toll each night.

"Violence multiplies violence."

We must remember
Dr. King's words
at times like these;
Because the descending spiral
of destruction has begun.
