Are humans using politics and religion claiming to be so pure in their intent the biggest accusers? Blood of sacrifice is "Blue in The Vein; Red when contacting The Air."




have legions representing
priviledg'd people
sold off parcels
of our homeland
lot by lot?

do liars from both sides
reign with damnation
as the pen bears down &
executes the jot? 


do red souls rise against
blue peaceful spirits, thus
condemn their speech to
wither, die & rot?


is approval rating lowest in the palace?

 are the ones who tighten nooses in the gallows deaf of thought?

The following poem is not in honor of Black History Month, but honors the right to be respected for believing independently without name-calling, homo-phobia or hate-bashing.

If not for all colors of people and all beliefs there would be NO America.


Title: I, Too, Sing America   by Langston Hughes



I am the darker brother.

They send me to eat in the kitchen

When company comes,

But I laugh,

And eat well,


And grow strong.





Tomorrow,


I'll be at the table

When company comes.

Nobody'll dare

Say to me,

"Eat in the kitchen,"

Then.


Besides, 

They'll see how beautiful I am

And be ashamed--


I, too, am America.

Cynth'ya,

This one powerfully, painfully penned ... words fail to express the sorrow I feel in these words ... and in my soul.

The last question, " are the ones who tighten nooses in the gallows deaf of thought?" particularly telling: yes, I believe they are. Doing what satisfies their pockets/greed/interests, they forget whom they serve. Shame.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
