Cornel West

Cornel West was arrested during a protest in Furguson, Missouri.

Langston Hughes famously asked, “what happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
