Slavery comes in many forms if not observant we can be easily misguided and be taken for a ride so arm yourself daily with knowledge and discover who you are so you can learn about yourself worth.

This poem is not meant to be a speech nor is it written to offend or give anyone blame. It just a mere observation of how today leaders choose to bring civilasation back into the slave trade. What a confusion of misconception when one term is mistaken in conversation. Horrors of slavery now waterdowned for modernization. Underpaid abuse workers identified as no different from mass excavation from African nations. How can slavery still exist when slaves broke the law back then. And now modern slaves can use the law to protect them Still we debate how to eradicate slavery. Without the admittance of our desrire for more for less Still we debate, but not on how propaganda can work for our interest. How can shackles and chains, branded and slained Be compared to smuggle and threatened, low pay and mistreated. Imagine generations of babies born into slavery with no prospect of ever knowing anything different Imagine seeking refuge, better life but being tricked into cheap labour. Absolute sub human bondage that we wont tolerate for our wildest of wildlife Force to work long hours with minimum pay so stakeholders can get their share. Cotton picker slaves, plantation slaves, breeding slaves, game slaves under institutions designed to seek maximum gained whilst inflicting maximum pain. Started out seeking refuge and a better life but conned into taking a different path of trouble and strife. Sold to the highest bidder in auction houses, record kept for compensation and ownership. Smuggle underground,whilst living next door in total hardship. Nowadays, topic,how to end modern day slavery. Back then was how to universaly enforce it. Nowadays slavery,redemption and even compensation. Back then not even criminalization only normalisation. Slavery means seveitude multiply by desititute then magnify it by four hundred years equals privileges with blood stain riches. Exploitations means, starting with gratitude trick into solitude minus Non Gratis equals affordability without resposibility. Please stop trying to rewrite history with mystery Inorder to patronized your higher devious morality.

The power of words is frightening at times...bring horrors of being held in bondage without a crime...from shoeless to clueless stacked in a BMW ride...the intention is to erase it...to make blind...Good conscious poem...Happy Sunday to you...
