Plea for a Public Acknowledgement


There in the texas paris some real dark
Secret shit, so unspoken this, i knew
Not of it in the bliss of innocence
When my childhood grew thru there.

At least please erect a memorial
For stars of those torture/death spectacles...
A shown care where their hacked remains
Permeate grounds of the fair.

Mute hatreds have slain every implored
'Come look into its face this disgrace! '
Remorse where are you? commence, enforce
Waking screams that rip raw all hide from thought

When racial sins may at last segue into the past...
