EINTOU OF THE DAY & A COUPLE OF COUPLETS – 04172018

1.

They say,

“These kids is wild-

Without supervision!

Crip-walkin’ their way to prison!”

Mass incarceration

Loves kids falling

Through cracks.

2.

Before

You judge someone

Better check your bias

Don’t deny it! We all have them:

Influencing our thought

Processes and

Actions.

3.

the guy

interviewing

at the next table was

nervously answering questions.

trying to look relaxed

he paused… and then

answered.

4.

trauma

from slavery

was never diagnosed

by abolitionist doctors

after the civil war.

they were busy

gloating!

5.

they dreamed

of brighter days

in their children’s futures

“butterflies, zebras, and moonbeams”

like jimi hendrix sang.

brighter days with

calm nights.

6.

freedom

came at a cost.

lives and liberties- lost!

middle passage or holocaust?

freedom came at a cost-

at a great cost!

be free!

Just so folks don’t trip,
I wrote a post script.

btw #2
