from station

We are the Light
We Lead

No colour 
No religion

No epic

The race to confusion?

We are One
You and me

We are One
We all bleed

we carry...Read More

Brouhaha Over Confederate Statues
Ambiguity within mine
doodling Yankee mind that
arises, asper current
hoopla harrumphing
American Civil War statues,
which verbal/written spat

particularly regarding southern generals
(many atop horses) arouses
call to arms whereat,
excited curiosity possibly twill incite
dangerous extraneous, mutinous,
treasonous tit for tat

that came to mind
this day I heard dangerous fears and angers
called cowardice instead,
back 200 years ago
in the United States,
when Northern industrialists,
relying on southern cotton
to mill fabrics
clothing cotton-picking slaves
and other whiter folks,
joined Southern slave-owners
to refer to Abolitionists

This time of year
If I was a turkey I'd fly away

For a country limping away from its past
For liberty like a statue
From mix iron cast
Calling me...Read More

Free Verse Nonsense
This is a free verse poem.
It may not meet the high standards of poetry soup.

Just like TV sitcoms.
But hear it is anyway,...Read More

Called Moses by Her People
Called Moses by Her People
Harriet Tubman was the very one.
In the year of 1851.

Called Moses by her people
a slave to none.

Returning from freedom
Braving nineteen runs.

Three hundred people
Their chains undone.

Confidence, bravery,
And fearless of death.

Built the Under Ground Railroad.
She conducted by faith.
