I Am The Hill And The Mountain

My heart remains in bruise mode,

Countenance in alert

Experiencing racial injustice at times, know it’s intended to hurt.

Supremacy in any form, shape, color or size

is bonafide genocide.

My country ’tis of thee

Result of cause and effect

We.. sardined in Middle Passage ships and boat$,

quarantined, milked welfare cheese,

then denied the right to vote.IMG_1208

Recent crap filtering over european seasconfederate flag wearing no clue skeletons

worse than a bag of fleas.

Don’t you dare touch my buttocks

and feign ’twas a mistake

Venus Hottentot’s in my heritage

And your interpretation of being a man is definitely a fake mistake.

I Am The Hill and The Mountain

that you once held down, whipped, and kept blind.

I, We.. are screaming now for you to cease

and desist

Before we are rewound back in minus time.© whenquiet
