Cry for America by JBF

Cry for America by JBF

America.

Founded through revolution.

...one nation under God

Indivisible

With liberty and justice for all...”


Which God?

A god of the white man?

A god for the white man?

A god by the white man?


The god of America.


Cry for America


Indivisible

Inseparable

One Nation

Founded on liberty and justice for all


Lily white

Lies founded in history

Excavated through time

Perpetuated by ‘educators’.


Blacks, graduated from chattel-hood

By laws that keep them enchained

Stagnating

Impatient to breathe.


Voices wail

Fires burn

Feet march

Standing still.


Cry for America


The revolution continues

Excluding

Dividing

Discriminating.


Imploding!


You are, America!
