Economic Racism

Would a man be any less a man
If he were to replace the iron links
Around his neck with gold chains,
Or the shackles on his wrists and ankles
With gold bracelets?
Would he be considered compromised
To the devil in exchange for indulgence?

Lets hope this is the last
Many children were stolen
It wasn’t that long ago
Our rich culture took a beaten 
Our children's cries still echo
This is what separates our nation


They came on a big ship
And fired their gun
Our languages were split
 We were forced to run

Solitary Australia
The land floating in ocean far in the south 
It is Australia as British people thoughts 
The aboriginals in the land full of doubts 
Making different calls as different  people saw

Clearly, Guards of kangaroo do the best jobs:

Just a light crossover
The elapsing of the year gets almost everyone busy, 
listing things to do and not to;  
What to leave out or cross over with
Recreating the disfigured concepts of one's entity,
Refilling the unfilled rows and columns of a mystery,

It is...Read More

Setting aside richly incorporated through homeless economies,
we have three political ways
to compare a population's internal status:
a. Aboriginal populations,
b. Immigrants--sometimes appearing as multiculturing creolic waves,
c. EmPowered Natives.

Natives are aboriginals
unless a more self-centered wave of supremacist immigrants
stake and successfully defend their claim...Read More

when the earth bleeds
When the earth bleeds;

fights abound about like Aboriginals tales,

memories of words that abut prophecies unveil,

multitudes of no fixed abodes occupy psychiantric hospital beds...

life shattered and broken...

a shadow closing down the globe

when the earth bleeds!

Vanity-in-Vanity
Madness about everything,
Craziness about nothing,
The complacency of the aboriginals.
Unlike the tail-wagging syndrome
Of the black man, a hyperbole!
The truth of nature prevails.
Yes, upon their claims of immunity.

“We taught you the how and why of life,”
The songs of the humbug pioneers hear!
