Choose death over

than to live with no

Once you name it,
it belongs to you.
You own it.

It is you, you are

I Will Save You

Beliefs beyond reality,
Choices for your mentality,
I'd catch you in the night,
Save you from your brutality.

Hawaiian Tropic of Cancer

With visual field microscopic
Some utterly blind and myopic
Consume to the max
As a luxury tax 
On those needing help philanthropic

Silent Cries

Taunting phantoms butcher his coloured back,
Rivers of blood flow down the cruel chains;
Cries resound through the ruthless ship,
Waking Death from his peaceful slumber.

Freedom Lost

“Sometimes you will never know the value of something, until it becomes a memory.” 
~ Dr. Seuss

a freedom nation
lost it all for insurance
we became livestock

civil wars

   Civil Wars 
A civil war lasts long in psyche of people 
Bitterness of having lost festers from one
Generation to the next and black America 
Are still victims caught in the middle of
The unresolved.

Fat Cats and Lawyers

Sharp Suited Sharks 
Fervently Feasting, Foul Fiends 
Covetous Cuthroats, Cultured Convicts Convincing
Innocents Inked In Immensely Incurred Interests, 
Enslaved, Effaced Emotions, Exasperated

Genesis Broad-Spectrum

Genesis Broad-Spectrum An ethical grey scenery alert was roused lenses shuttered, in hues of Red, White and Blue. Theorem of imagery collision, flashed old fashioned—PolaROId, ammunition developed HumanØ1ds.

Short Slavery poem by Just That Archaic Poet| Details | |


My Resentments are so ill-behaved
By and by- by them enslaved!
Was I made to be depraved,
(Just another Soul to save?)
Afraid to say or hear the Truth,
Cannot bear to see the proof
My life grows cold, alas! I'm old!
Oh, my God! Where went my youth?

Short Slavery poem by Jerry T Curtis| Details | |

Forgotten Freedom

In a shallow grave
Behind a big old whitewashed house
where a tattered flag still waves
beside a small cross made with staves
and in the wood, clearly carved
with the spirit of devolution
states, "Here interned today
Lies the US Constitution "

Short Slavery poem by Sabina Nicole| Details | |


By Faces ,
Empty places,
I try to erase this.
Echoes... from these caves
Reminding me of all those slaves.
Dismembered operation,
On the stations.
Sexuality sold to thieves,
While snakes sneak up their sleeves.

All Around Me

As I wake to that obnoxious alarm
I look around and notice nothing new
I brush my teeth
Look in the mirror
All I see is me
Same routine
Day in, day out
The world around me remains unchanged
I wake to the obnoxious alarm
Everything seems to be the same

Threads On Wood

Gauze arms prance
between the limbs,
a mourning pines
when cloudline dims.
A tangled wood
that dangles loose,
silence screams
this delicate noose.
Devilry unravels
and moon has bled
king of puppet 
cuts off life's thread.

Short Slavery poem by Adrian Robinson| Details | |

Each man giving a bag of tools

Idle tools and Unlock
 Gold line the 
Streets of freedom
        For the earth is finish 
       Built for our children, 
       But if disaster rise off 
      The sea and ruin the

Bring me my tools
And shackles,  
Make me a slave again.

taming flowers

there's not a flower
can't grow wild
thrive neglected and ignored
but how much better
some can do when caged
tied to stakes
and pruned
their buds collected
to encourage growth
the sun, the rain, the earth
and care and harvesting
no less important
to renew the bloom.

Short Slavery poem by John Pen| Details | |

I am a slave

My message lies not in the sentence
If you learn to read between the lines
You will hear stories in my silence
My life is not about roses and wines

I look strong on the exterior
But I am weak on the interior
I may be smiling on the outside
But I am hurting on the inside

Short Slavery poem by Sophie Taylor| Details | |

Another Drunk

We laughed when the devil 
Appeared at the bar
His stench of death
Ran out our nostrils
Amused, we bought him a drink 
And drank to our decline
Unmoved by the weekend 
Visitor’s stare 
As the long claws
Tightened around our necks
We swallowed another down 
Between gags

Short Slavery poem by Nigel Fox| Details | |


only following orders

Pushing corpses into the oven 
living now my only thought
survival keeping my uniform clean

I only did what I was told
loading bodies of the dead 
once bold soul now weak
bought n sold

Jewish guards 
Only following orders

To Do List

I've a million things to do today:
Like save the world, and cure the sick,
Feed the starved, and free the Slaves-
Sustain the Poor, my stars predict!
A home for all, the naked clothed,
And make the water clean to drink
I bring them Peace, and save their Soul;
I do, I do! Just ask my Shrink!
