My Nascent Poetic Tribute
To Black History Month

though I yam Caucasian,
tis rightful to honor that most bitter
racist genocidal crime
nonetheless ovation qua

quintessential significant contribution
vis a vis that doth litter
anonymous multitudinous peoples
many unknown dark skinned souls

bravely fought as non quitter
with melanin so coon sitter
this asthma feeble attempt
made to mind of literate
parent, guardian or sitter
adorn aye rhythmically twitter

to Homo Sapiens with Negroid color
who, despite being human bondage
managed to adorn
worthy contributions to society,

though an American (though not so proud)
and civilization since time immemorial
hence, I wanna pay poetic homage
to persons born
akin to diversity exemplifying gamut

analogous to Indian corn
debased brutally and forlorn
and raised in cornucopia horn
of plenty with rare serf tenderness

whipped by wicked task masters
from the crack of morn,
aye cannot fathom why
a great proportion of humanity

must struggle on scraps of subsistence
viz with fifty plus shades of chocolate
vile shamefully opprobrious sworn
vengeance toward those
via heroic efforts escaped,

manacled, tortured, et cetera history
as slaves an existence
until...pacified family dislocated
sans rent asunder, ripped and torn.

Once a proud family akin to Brady
bunch, now brutally, nasty
and short lived poorly destitute
(case in point) like Haiti -

once a nation extant
with cultural finery
insidiously raped "Lady"
lacerated odiously robbing
unique peoples as owners didst slay
practically naked "Primates"

encaged like wild animals in zoos
culturally robbed while
abhorrently marched in ones and twos
shredded souls without shoes

(analogous to persecuted Jews)
of singular ambition to break shackles
though tightly fused
to life as they chose.

this just one example of many peoples
UNFAIRLY subjected
to subservience and exempt
from enjoying the fruits of their labor.

January twelfth two thousand and ten
(original date this communique writ then
kept wedged where in no wise
bore visual witness

vis a vis near annihilation and destruction
of African, Haitian, South American, et cetera nations
whereby countless/ nameless individuals

een the strongest Herculean type men
crushed by humungous slabs of
building facades practically
demolishing every creation

since this island settled, which
indigenous tribes sought safety
in any geologic den
seeking solace and salvation

from wrath of nature
by paying obeisance via oblation
perhaps giving credence to clear water
in tandem with rooster and hen

that laid a golden egg
and chicken thing, especially
as encroaching savages affected violation
particularly when Europeans
foisted forfeiture of land

with primitive implement like pen
no matter that travesty, trickery, mockery,
et cetera wrought humiliation
pleading invaders to forsake

such actions that rent asunder
culture beseeched god when
these brutish, nasty
and (shortish) Hobbesian simians
to cease desecration

yet the peoples of this dominion rose
from the ashes like the phoenix like bird
no mattered genetic pool underwent
white washing from scouring influx
from western thumping proselytizers,
which alien beliefs hard to swallow like curd
basically bribery (with lustrous trinkets)
ah those coveted legal tender

upon emancipation proclamation cessation
to sell men, women and
for x amount of bucks
akin to the soundcloud winged fowl clucks
foisted/ forced the unpleasant alternative

(wanton slaughter) to be clearly heard
yet within the very fiber of tropical
man grove persons patiently
lined up their ducks

and declared as one of the first
African American peoples
INDEPENDENCE to be the word
whence adulation, elation, inspiration echoing across ramshackle greensward.
