Stop Armageddon - Poem by Patrice Delevoe


over-flowing our nation, hate over race and
we’re all adjacent


anger, animosity, attitude built
kkk emerge, many killed


biggest mistake, hatred
fuel on fire, open death gates


filled many home, but money comes to the ground which
is home of poor and land of the rich

America, America

Home of the free, Land of the brave,
United, as, one, yet many slaves


labor in southern state, no pay
in the rivers, ancestors wade.


disparity, poverty soaks the land
children victimized, never given chance


seeds planted, less cotton in the fields
more opportunities, MLK killed


lied to, betrayed
back on the walls, no help, no faith


everyone rumbled, cries over looked
pause - civil movement fumble


bright light darkens, endless battle being fought
don’t give up, peace will be sought


seeds grow, opinions change
plants recognized, change in the game


no longer a factor,
but justice served, Thurgood Marshall heard


one day shall come.
United, States, of America

    I enjoyed this. Found the presentation quite hypnotic. As it seemed as an army soldiering on. Ty karen (Report) Reply
