They're NEVER To Be FORGOTTEN... !!!!!
The Sodden And Down Trodden...
By The ILL Gotten... ROTTEN... !!!
Enslavers And HATERS... !!!!!
FAKE Claiming... “ Bravers “...

Faithless No Namers.... !!!!!!!
Who CHAINED Us And Claimed Us...
As If Like Their Papers...
They Could Simply ERASE Us... !!!
Actions So SHAMELESS That It's HARD To Stay Gracious...
And Calmer Than PARKER When Preaching From Charters...
That They Used To HARM US... !!!
In Truth I Mean THEM... Our Ancestral Men...
And Women Who DARED To STAND... WAR DECLARED... !!!
When Others Were SCARED And FAR From.......... Prepared............
To STAND UP To Systems That Led To BLOODSHED... !!!!!!
The LOSS of SO MANY A Toll That's STILL HEAVY... !!!
So They'll NOT BE Forgotten I Promise That... OFTEN... !!!!!
I'll Take Time And Reflect And Mark With RESPECT...
Our Ancestral Friends YES Brothers And Sisters... !!!
Forefathers And WINNERS Who Suffered NO Dinners...
Being Seen As PURE SINNERS...
Unforgiven FORBIDDEN From Thinking Or LIVING... !!?!!
These Words Are NOT Written For Smiles Or For Missions... !!!!!
They're Written For THEM Those I WILL NOT FORGET... !!!!!
NO MATTER What's Said By Those Who... “ Pretend “...
That Things Have Got BETTER So... " We should move on ! "
And FORGET Our ICONS Who PROVED Themselves STRONG... ?!?
Well Their Thoughts Have A PONG Like OLD...“ Slavery Songs “... !!!!!!
That DO NOT Belong Where These Words Now Come From... !!!
As I Think Now of ROSA And ... MARY SEACOLE ...
WOMEN Who Were BOLD Who Have Stories Untold...
Who Gave Up Their LIVES To INSPIRE The Minds...
of Black Men Like ME To Now Write Poetry...
As Well As Movies That RESPECTFULLY Speak About Their History... !!!
Well From Parker To Malcolm To... Marcus Garvey...
They'd Better REMEMBER When Talking To Me... !!!!!
BEFORE They Get BURNED Like My Ancestors WERE... !!!!!!!
From Homes To Those CROSSES...
WHEN Klansmen Were Bosses Who SHOULD BE FORGOTTEN... !!!!!
But It's Just NOT That Easy PLEASE People BELIEVE ME... !!!!!
It Rests In My Psyche So I TREAD This World Lightly...
With FIRE INSIDE Me Because of The LOSSES And HORRIFIC Nonsense... !!!!!
That HARKS From The Past Of Those Who Left Marks And... DEFIANT Hearts... !!!
REAL Braves Who STILL Spark These Words I Impart...
That PROVE Slaves Who Moved AGAINST HATEFUL Crews With BRUTAL Attitudes...
May Well Be Old News But DON'T Get it Confused... !!!
These Words Are A SOLVENT To Prove WITHOUT Doubt...
That Those MADE To BOW By Souls TRULY ROTTEN... !!!!!

Are....
