Commentary :: Human Rights

Political Poetry
a giant coloring book

There’s a Peace Blackout and everyone’s confused.
We are America right?
Red. White.
The Used. The Bruised.
The People who created the Blues.
We are Right?
Every time we’re caught in and International
Every time we claim to be fighting for
Human Rights?
For children to grow old
and sleep peacefully through the night.
For women to be educated,
join the work force and
Waste their lives.
We are America Right?
Ending dictatorships in other lands.
Taking control of colonial power
and putting Democracy in the
Let in be known that
Fights for Human Rights.
The more you fight
The easier it is
To redirect your people
From the Human Rights Violations
That America keeps hid.
“In it’s past” is the answer you’ll receive
When you ask generationally elected politicians
If they have ever grieved
For the slave who’s daughter was repeatedly rapped
by some white plantation owner
who’s right it was to put tape on her face
Or for the young runaway
Who risked his whole family to be free
Has America admitted to hanging thousands
from sycamore trees?

Or the Chinese and the Mexicans
America wealth was created by the spilled blood
Of Immigrants
Indentured Servants.
Slaves, caught away from their tribes.
American Women
Pumped full of pharamcisotical preparing them
Not To Cry.

All you MotherFuckers

The Red.
The White.
The Blue Blooded Bitch.
Who snuck in, fucked my mom,
took her land
and enslaved her kids,
Will not Be Missed once the dinosaurs

Manipulation is a realization...
Go with the flow...You're a sell out ho...
Democracy in the U...S of A?...
For the poor and middle class doesn't pay!...
If and when the revolution comes?...
Replay San Francisco, 1849...HANG THE BUMS!
