DOCTRINES AND GUILE

revered ancestors
revered doctrines

doctrines taught
doctrines enforced

enforced culture
enforced slavery

slavery is abhorrent
slavery is demeaning

demeaning comments
demeaning laws

laws shackle
laws rape

rape the land
rape of dignity

dignity of a nation
dignity as man

man will resist
man will remember

remember slights
remember the truth

truth hurts
truth sets us free

free of stress
free to choose

choose to destroy
choose to tame

tame emotions
tame customs

customs are foreign
customs are ingrained

ingrained notions
ingrained mannerisms

mannerisms learned
mannerisms to eschew 

eschew integration
eschew bias

bias will stifle
bias will suppress 

suppress your anger
suppress the fear

fear erodes psyche
fear can’t protect

protect our inheritance
protect our children

children are the future
children are free of guile 

guile serves the wicket
guile hurts all

all
wicket …
