Allochthonous

maybe i can
take a liberty
and redefine a mystery
and liberty
it's all about
and you will see the roundabout

how peoples
from all Africa
were sold into another life

and that it's
so atrocious
so i'll honour them as allochthonous

i wrote about
indigenous
tho i prefer autochthonous

and how
in the past so long ago
when small i considered myself allochthonous

the reason
that i make this claim
is sturdy not superfluous

since peter
is my given name
and that's a rock that has some fame

so i'am inclined
to make a claim
and relook at that word again

allochthonous
turns out to be
when defined in the geology

‘a rock
originated (transition?)
at a distance from it's present position'

every African
that i have known
has such a rock inside that's shown

they're made
of special something
and by that I mean there's no dumb thing

I note that
rocks and Cornerstones
have such exciting overtones

and like a bride
we're being groomed
just for The Groom and being bloomed

and so
as with this instance
that we've come such a long distance

like the
rocks hauled to Stonehenge
who've stood so strong, without revenge

though
we're looking
for a freedom and for earth becoming eden

and God's
Certificate of Freedom
that is NOTHING like this earthly fiefdom

so let's
all band together
and let's call ourselves allochthonous

and as we
narrow down the distance
‘tween ourselves and New Existence

as we
worship dance and sing
and pay homage to Our King

as rocks
the living stones that He doth own
we together move towards The Cornerstone
