THE BLACK VICTORY

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.
