My Nascent Poetic Tribute To Black History Month

My nascent poetic tribute to black history month more apropos and alternately titled: praise to thee people of variegated melanin color, whose immense understated improvements and enhancement of webbed wide world worth more than paltry words of yours truly can communicate. Though I yam spud during Caucasian, tis rightful to honor that most bitter racist genocidal crime, nevertheless ovation qua treated worse than pestilential critter quintessential significant contribution vis a vis that doth litter anonymous multitudinous peoples many unknown dark skinned souls bravely fought as non quitter with melanin so coon sitter this asthma feeble attempt made to mind of literate parent, guardian or sitter adorn aye rhythmically twitter to *****Sapiens with Negroid color (please pardon any unintentional slight) who, despite being human bondage managed to adorn worthy contributions to society, though an American (though not so proud until death do me part) and civilization since time immemorial hence, I wanna pay poetic homage to persons born akin to diversity exemplifying gamut analogous to Indian (Jimmy crack) corn debased brutally and forlorn and raised in cornucopia horn of plenty with rare serf tenderness whipped by wicked task masters from the crack of morn, whipped, pummeled, beaten... courtesy Jim Crow whose dignity shorn aye cannot fathom why a great proportion of humanity must struggle on scraps of subsistence viz with fifty plus shades of chocolate vile shamefully opprobrious sworn vengeance toward those via heroic efforts escaped, manacled, tortured, et cetera history as slaves an existence until...pacified family dislocated sans rent asunder, ripped and torn. Once a proud family akin to Brady bunch, now brutally, nasty and short lived poorly destitute (case in point) like Haiti - once a nation extant with cultural finery insidiously raped pink "Lady" lacerated odiously robbing unique peoples as owners didst slay practically naked "Primates" encaged like wild animals in zoos culturally robbed while abhorrently marched in ones and twos shredded souls without shoes (analogous to persecuted Jews) of singular ambition to break shackles fielding exorbitant dues, through tightly fused linkedin manacles to life as they choose. This just one example of many peoples UNFAIRLY subjected to subservience and exempt from enjoying the fruits of their labor. January twelfth two thousand and ten original date this communique writ then kept wedged where in no wise bore visual witness vis a vis near annihilation and destruction of African, Haitian, South American, et cetera nations whereby countless/ nameless individuals e’en the strongest Herculean type men crushed by humungous slabs of building facades practically demolishing every creation since this island settled, which indigenous tribes sought safety in any geologic den seeking solace and salvation from wrath of nature by paying obeisance via oblation perhaps giving credence to clear water in tandem with rooster and hen that laid a golden egg and chicken thing, especially as encroaching savages affected violation particularly when Europeans foisted forfeiture of land with primitive implement like pen no matter that travesty, trickery, mockery, et cetera wrought humiliation pleading invaders to forsake such actions that rent asunder culture beseeched god when these hashtagged brutish, nasty and (shortish) Hobbesian simians to cease desecration, yet the peoples of this dominion rose from the ashes like the phoenix like bird no mattered genetic pool underwent white washing from scouring influx from western thumping proselytizers, which alien beliefs hard to swallow like curd basically bribery (with lustrous trinkets) ah those coveted legal tender upon emancipation proclamation cessation to sell men, women and for x amount of bucks akin to the soundcloud winged fowl clucks foisted/ forced the unpleasant alternative (wanton slaughter) to be clearly heard, yet within the very fiber of tropical mangrove persons patiently lined up their ducks and declared as one of the first African American peoples INDEPENDENCE to be the word whence adulation, elation, inspiration echoing across ramshackle greensward.
