Here you will find the Poem Madam and the Census Man of poet Langston Hughes
The census man, The day he came round, Wanted my name To put it down. I said, Johnson, Alberta K. But he hated to write The K that way. He said, What Does K stand for? I said, K-- And nothing more. He said, I'm gonna put it KÐAÐY. I said, If you do, You lie. My mother christened me Alberta K. You leave my name Just that way! He said, Mrs., (With a snort) Just a K Makes your name too short. I said, I don't Give a damn! Leave me and my name Just like I am! Furthermore, rub out That MRS., too-- I'll have you know I'm Madam to you!
