Uncle Crow… [POEM]

I will never know
nor will I care
of such your struggle
so please beware

no meaning to offend
no cause to just
I’d rather you struggle
but not within us

raped and pillaged
captured and caught
historical struggle
or what will be taught

pride and prejudice
noose and chain
indentured struggle
a faith does explain

I won’t see your plight
I won’t see your curse
spare me your struggle
rhythm and verse

notes and ships
docked and stolen
come to your struggle
with a ticket much golden

I will deny that I hurt you
I will refuse to repair
my success is your struggle
I need you right there.

… Please Accept,
The Threat.
