The Visible Man

When an innocent bystander was asked,
what did he think was adequate compensation
to give the two black men
who had experienced racial profiling
at the Starbucks in Philadelphia,
he answered, " How about a Pulitzer?"
for their parody of The Invisible Man,
The Visible Man. In this version
everyone is invisible except for
The Visible Man bumping into people
all over the place explicitly.
It could save a fortune in reenactments.
