african burial grounds…

african burial grounds

the truth’s been
paved over
a black layer
of lies
covers
the visible surface
while
the foundation
of
your existence
is hidden
beneath where you
stand today
your
firm footing
provided by
what you have
failed
to learn
and
understand
your crime
is one
of
ignorance
and
blind acceptance
for even
a mother lies
to
conceal crimes
of
passion
so
it should be
no surprise
that
a nation
seeks to bury
its
cardinal sins
