Slavernijmonument (3) - Poem by Ellory Mace

Two sides to
Every coin

Or three

Slavery
Included

Dark spot
Of humanity

So

Come with me to
Our ancestors

Mesopotamia
Persia
Way back
in time

Egypt
Rome
Africa

People s
Battling and
Making slaves

They own
And sell

A crime no doubt
A crime of humanity

No matter
The colour
Of its skin
