Mary Louise Buggs

(Oakland, CA, USA)


Looking through the supernatural
I see the slave ship Moriah
Moving slowly under the hot sun
My ancestors under stress, no fun
No ticket, bodies naked and exposed
Washed down by water hose
I see Malcom, Martin, Rosa, Harriet,
Nat, Emmit, and John Brown
Reassuring them all it ain't over yet
