when eyes avert

a
wall
of
death
names
scribbled
onto
old
decaying
wooden planks
of
history
those
souls
lost
in ignorance
believing
that
online propaganda
could
somehow
or
should
rebuke
science
so
they
joined hands
forming
a circle
around
their misconceptions
to
shield
those
within
but
those
within
all
died
but
the protectors
cheered on
by
the patrons
of
greed
and
power
couldn’t see
the
obvious
for
they
were
looking
outward
facing
the blinding
light
of
truth
unable
to
see
the carnage
of
their
blind beliefs
bodies
piled
high
into
eternity

house negro..

 

the brown bag prophet
had
just been watching
kanye
praise
and
give
a big
cotton picker’s hug
to
the pretend president
the prophet
said
did you ever read
in
a history book
about
a newspaper ad
taken out
in
the 17 hundreds
i believe
advertising
a young
house-negro wench
of
19
for
sale
the ad
noted
she spoke
english
i suspect
the prophet
said
better
than
kanye
and
no doubt
she was
brighter
one thing’s
for
sure
malcolm
would
have called
him
the same thing
maher
had
to apologize for
