Voices From The Quickening Quicksand

spin from the wayward watchmen
the tyrants of yesteryear
who bludgeon Black men with
large schemes
delaying dreams
in the seams of America's promise
unknown though frequently digested
like wasteful air
good and bad
so why thrive or
pretend to leap above the dull minds of the East and West
united in print
yet torn and bleeding
in minds unaffected
as the black skins
encasing them
wither with the seasons
until the harvest
of a growing lily
mature and healthy
for the world
from a world
there and here
though lasting
awhile too short
in a hymnal
of shame
