    A RAISIN IN THE SUNDREAM DEFERRED by Langston Hughes.
    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?
