Slavery

Once you name it,
it belongs to you.
You own it.
It can't be
unseen, unknown
It is you, you are
it, forever

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

Short Slavery poem by Jasmine Khurana| Details | |

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.

Short Slavery poem by jan oskar hansen| Details | |

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.  



Short Slavery poem by Kirin Lawrence| Details | |

Fat Cats and Lawyers

Sharp Suited Sharks 
Feeding
Fervently Feasting, Foul Fiends 
Covetous Cuthroats, Cultured Convicts Convincing
Innocents Inked In Immensely Incurred Interests, 
Indebted
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.

Curmudgeon

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 Sabina Nicole| Details | |

Splinters

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

Short Slavery poem by HENRY W| Details | |

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.



Puppet Contest

Short Slavery poem by Adrian Robinson| Details | |

Each man giving a bag of tools

Idle tools and Unlock
Shackles.
 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
       Pyramids  

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

Short Slavery poem by turrner bodeen| Details | |

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 Nigel Fox| Details | |

Sondercommando

Auschwitz 
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


Auschwitz 
Jewish guards 
Only following orders

Short Slavery poem by BL Devnath| Details | |

SALVATION FROM SELF SLAVERY

                                          



                                  




                                           inner consciousness
                                       seeks righteous abnegation 
                                            leads to salvation 

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

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!

Short Slavery poem by Trisha Sugarek| Details | |

Memories of the South

Memories of the South

spanish moss shimmers
slave ghosts of days long gone by
hanging from the trees

stain on Old Glory
dark time of subjugation
when man enslaved man

memories forever
then bodies, now gray moss hangs
tears, blood darken roots

Trisha Sugarek from
The World of Haiku 



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

Nothing Can Stop Me Now

I changed the Game, it isn't the same-
I am free of the Guilt, free of the Shame
Released from my shackles, freed from my chains-
My Life has become the sum of mundane
A quiet Life, it is, indeed
The only thing I have wanted
To be alone, is all I need
To seek my keep henceforth undaunted

KNOW YOUR PLACE CONTEST ENTRY

Short Slavery poem by Jerry Stevenson| Details | |

A Sad State Of Affairs

He robbed a bank,
His armpits stank,
He ran a scam,
He screwed a lamb,
He is a drunk,
He has a pet skunk,
He cripples nuns,
He stole some funds,
He spits on graves,
He owns some slaves,
He cheats on his wife,
He kills kittens with a knife,
He pissed on a pew,
He laughs at me and you,
He is a politician.

Short Slavery poem by ollakunle campbell| Details | |

WE WORN A RACE

WE WORN A RACE

Sited around the fading fire
With broken wills and glowing shame
They walk the  darkness
Burden with stiffened hopes 
They trudge ahead 
With a shorten vision
They soon lost the sun
With no dazzling rays 
And no mingling heat
They settled in a long struggle
Amidst so much trouble
They miss the days’ future 






Short Slavery poem by Jerry T Curtis| Details | |

Little Black Box

Little Black Box
Where You lie Sleeping
Little Black Box
Your Secrets Keeping
You'll Never Talk
In That Little Black Box

UnMarked Grave
Where You Are Wasting
UnMarked Grave
In Soil Basting 
Just another Knave
In An Unmarked Grave

Barren womb
Just Like A tomb
Barren Womb
Life exhumed 
We're all Doomed
In A Barren Womb
