All men were created equal, a noble thought
We'd all like to think this is fact but it's not
Since the beginning
Man's been sinning
Continues today but more intense than sought

From the grounds of the south during the sweltering summer 
of Negros in America*, came white violence and murder.  The

Premium Member Remembering Four Centuries of Africans in America
Fields where the bondman’s toil
No more shall trench the soil,
Seem now to bask in a serener day;
The meadow-birds sing sweeter, and the airs 
Of heaven with more caressing softness play,
Welcoming man to liberty like theirs.
A glory clothes the land from...Read More

Mount Rushmore; Carved In Stone

From deep within the earth’s crust,
An orogeny pushes
The batholith upwards
To become ‘The Shrine of Democracy,’
Of weathered presidential faces
Chiseled in rock in South Dakota;
Representing 150 years of history,
(From birth of a nation
To entry into the 20th. Century)

Look lick the luster lane 
It is often a shame to the
One who doesn't win the
Grand prize, gratuitously
Lame, it feels strange, alien
Always another man aim

Retrieve the goose's  golden egg
Move proudly.  How? ...Read More

Premium Member Fluid In the Wind Tattered Old Glory
the cool breeze fondles
the old tattered flag as it
hangs on the flagpole
displaying it's frayed faded
colors of red, white, and blue

fluid in the wind 
drawing your ears to the flags
flapping sounds trying
to tell manifold stories
of men and women's valor

A Few Words to The American Mogul
I don’t have the financial muscle
To wrestle the American State President intellectually
If the truth be told ;
I don’t have half enough in my savings account
To ridicule the financial dry seasons I went through to this age
Congratulations to you Mr President...Read More

Written words
 blend into memorable unforgotten causes
  repeated and recalled as history falls to human flaws
   dark, hidden truths of hopes and promise 
    in actions taken without compromise.

BONDAGE TO NO BOUNDS
Twenty score years ago, and some
The evil merchants crossed the waves
Gleeful as they raped and pillaged
Their cargoes of dark-skinned slaves

En route to the land of Liberty
Where all men are created equal
In their most frightening and wildest nightmares
They could never have...Read More

Premium Member Ordeal of Power
You fear knowledge,
run from it as you would a gathering storm,
to hide in the dark forest of your life's ordeal.
Seeking nothing,
but self-satisfaction, blaming others for your lot in life.
Hiding from the responsibility of your own actions.
To need someone to appear...Read More
