Carbonated Perspective

My seven year old daughter
Continues to stare at me
Mouth open
Eyes wide
Even after being reassured 
That I was not joking
When I said
There are still people 
Who were alive
Water fountains and
Soda fountains
Were segregated
I choose to see 
In her bewilderment
Rather than drinking fountains
Overflowing with Coke
