A Take on Rosa

Sent to the back of the bus
with her hair
She wasn't welcome up there.
But sat herself down and waited for
the police to come
cart her away.
Cart her away with her unwelcomed hair, in it's bun on her head.
It shone golden in the sunlight.

I had an assignment to write a poem related to history. I chose a different type of discrimination by taking Rosa Parks' story and turning it blonde.
