denial of genocide or how to repeat the crime…

denial of genocide or how to repeat the crime

a piaget stage
once hidden from view it’s gone
childish behavior
but promoted by fascists
for such obvious reasons

global catering service…

global catering service

always believed
that
the world
i saw
would evolve
to
include me
but
ain’t nothing
changed
justice
is still sleeping
and
folks like me
are
more
than
welcomed
to
serve
but
not
eat

 

 

innocent bystanders…

innocent bystanders

many people die
as
life victims
outpatients 
in
an unsympathetic void
where
the affairs of life
are rewarded
like a pet
receiving a treat
for
good behavior
whose mourners
celebrate
but
who’s celebrated
never
joined
the party

 

 

shadows that make bumps in the night…

shadows that make bumps in the night

there are
three
shades of shadows
the black ones
we
all know
subservient
to
the wills
of
others
some
may know
the gray ones
that
blend
into
the landscape
of
society
but
few
know
of
the
white shadows
shadows
that
can control
the
physical environment
making
trees to bend
and
humans
to
dance
like
puppets
on
a string
they are
the
shadows
of
history
oh
not
those
visible
in textbooks
but
those traced
in
invisible ink
on
the pages
of
our lives
shadows
that
have
defined us
and
steer the course
of
tomorrow

 

 

open-air prisons…

open-air prisons

long term
detention centers
have been established
in both
urban
and
rural
areas
to
facilitate
availability
of
cheap labor
for
our corporate
and
community
job release programs
these expansions
have resulted
in
the necessity
for
additional security services
for
patrolling
penal colonies
and
periodically
reminding inmates
via
random
stops
searches
and
seizure
of
their existence
that
they don’t have
voting rights
as for those
prisoners
living outside
the prison confines
and
firmly established
in
viable
work furlough programs
let me
assure you
that they
are
subject to
the same
prison system security procedures
to
insure compliance
with
our concept
of
social confinement
even when
living outside
america’s
ghettos
and
poverty rich
communities

 

 

resolute…

resolute

i will have
no
brand upon my skin
whether
it
be
for
pledging allegiance
or
human bondage
neither
will serve
my
soul
nor
insure
one moment
of
my life
so
i
will have
no
cattle brand
upon
my skin
and
if branded
by
force
i shall
remove
that skin
even
if
death
surely
follows

 

 

repeatedly raped…

repeatedly raped

history of degradation
denial of family rights
rejection of equality
covert systems of bondage
black life in america

 

 

republican voter suppression…

shadows of yesterday
lingering behind closed eyes
muted moments of life
held in fear‘s bondage
to make freedom unobtainable

junk drawers…

each nation has one
where it stores discarded parts
of humanity
utilitarian souls
for the capital machine
