Answer :

In the poem the poet was trying to justify that colour is not only the factor on which he had been judged upon by the lady. He was telling her that “facially I am brunette but madam you should also see rest of me, the palm of my hand, soles of my feet “and in the end he ended up with a statement that ‘Wouldn’t you rather see for yourself?’

If I consider my dialogues it would be like this:


Tenant: Ma’am, I am here to take your house on rent not to justify my colour.

Lady: But for me it matters, why don’t you get that?

Tenant: But for me the thing matter is my self-respect so I am not going to justify things as I am not a racist.

Lady: Shouts loudly, you mean that I am racist?

Tenant: No ma’am, I am telling myself that I am not racist, would you see yourself as racist?

These lines show that poem was ended with a moral that a person himself know from inside that what he or she is doing is wrong and this conversation signifies that tenant calmly showed lady a mirror which reflected her real image.
