I wrote a new poem -
(It is based upon Langston Hughes' poem "I, Too, Sing America")

I, Too, am Humanity
===============

I, too, am humanity.

I am the autistic brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

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 humanity.
