This poem was not written buy H.P. Lovecraft and is blatant attempt to discredit Lovecraft. The book "The Ancient Track" contains every poem written by Lovecraft known to still exist and this poem is not in the book. Can anyone produce proof Mr. Lovecraft wrote this abomination? Someone has committed crime here in attempt to make out that Lovecraft (at the age of 12) was a racist. This poem does not prove that because it is a fraud. Lovecraft expert S.T. Joshi writes in the introduction that every known Lovecraft poem is included and this abomination is not in the book.

Apparently he forgot this one or you're misreading the introduction, because An H.P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia by S. T. Joshi and David E. Schultz mentions this poem. It was apparently published in Saturnalia and Other Poems in 1984, edited by no other than S. T. Joshi, and also published in Lovecraft: a biography by Lyon Sprague de Camp in 1975.--Prosfilaes (talk) 21:10, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Also, Lovecraft was born in 1890, meaning he was 22, not 12, when this was written.2601:0:9D80:65A:E851:8006:7AA0:2E36 02:42, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
