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...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
