Morton - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

An estimate of 14 million African Slaves were shipped out!
That was from the 1400's and into the 1800's;
But my love to you is deeper than the ocean!
And history is all around us and you are Morton my love,
But i do love you like death itself.

Extinguish your natural love to me,
For without you i am nobody;
And let the light teach us all,
For the fiddle of a change is around us.

A facetious act,
And of the long animated dreams of love!
But you are another part of me,
And i really know the story of the African Slaves.
