Drunkedness afflicts people in different ways,
sleepiness, anger or a lustful gaze.
Yet others suffer mental states even more perverse:
the mistaken assumption that they can write in verse.

Why is everyone assuming that OP was being racist towards coloured folk?

OP never mentioned whether his poem was referring to milk chocolate or dark chocolate... let's keep an open mind here ;)

What do you mean "everyone?" No one has posted a comment about being racist yet... Also, aren't "milk chocolate" and "dark chocolate" both considered colored?

Wait. What's so weird about saying "coloured?" If you look at his info it says he's from the UK and coloured with a u is the right way to spell it in British English. "People of color" is still a commonly used phrase too, so I don't see anything wrong? Not saying I understand the rest of the post that well, though.

I'm from the UK. I very rarely hear anyone use the word 'coloured' in that context and when I do it's always from the elderly who just haven't caught up with the times. I'm pretty sure it's not acceptable in most of the UK. Just my experience.
