Looking at the hues of these lives:
Civilization has wasted so much time,
Sharpening our old and rusted tool in hand:
We have come far with change, as nature brought the play:
Folks of a hue sail out of their coast,
Navigating across oceans in search of wealth, land and fame;
These sailors discovering other hues not as theirs;
Showering these in-lands with gifts –
Leading the in-lands through trade –
Deceiving and robbing them out of their intelligence.
Taking advantage of the indigenous people made possible:
Pruning the mess that has grown up without care;
Bringing about the movement of the Republican Party;
That set the crown of glory upon Abraham Lincoln’s head:
Not to forget the civilians’ blood,
That streamed in most streets especially that of Gettysburg;
By the south war against the north:
The greatest and all time American’s president got shot.
Civilization did sigh for humanity as matters turned from bad to worst.
Many years after, many freedom fights emerged;
As Martin Luther king’s dream fought for civil right,
Breaking the neck of slavery and prejudice:
We lived to see a black president of the United States,
A dream That Abraham Lincoln also thought possible.
