There are chains that yet remain
In these American land fields of mine.
While being Uncle Sam’s love-
-child has its perks,
Today I stumbled into the wording
Of The Thirteenth Amendment.
It assured me, sure as hell
Slavery’s alive and well.
Only, now it’s under contract
By a different clientele.
Hate to call it what it isn’t
Slavery is live and present
Its sins: ugly as a prison
‘The Slave of Modern Day’
Hecho En Estados Unidos
Son los pajaros sin nidos
Los estados invadidos
Con escuincles Desnutridos
Made in the USA.
The World’s Best
Styled-up a century
Let us not get the twist as if history is mystery
I will spick-it like this:
Slavery Still Exists.
