Those Who Ban Booksby Maya Angelou
They were scared of sexes and hexesand multi-colored sheets.
And men and women doing evenconsensual things.
They banned a same-sex marriage roomand Judy Blume.
Charles Dicken Chickin-Lickin andWhy the Caged Bird Sings.
(An original poem by Maya Angelou for Random House Incorporated Magazine, Vol 3, No.1)
