Won’t you bear through Brother?

Sacrifice it all

Yet standing tall

Answering the rebels call

To make this tyranny fall

They want our minds,

Our strength

Too much yet long the length

We’ll travel in abrupt time

Won’t you be there?

Seeing a life of treachery in this piece as unfair

Let us take own

Of what they viciously loaned-

Our dignity and power

Longs the night seems a lonely hour


James I know

How it feels to hear the crow

Squawking behind the caged land

Where the simple brother goes crazy to have power in his hands-

All splintered and calloused

From reenacting their preexisting malice

Don’t you be down-trodden? 

Pouring melancholy fountains out your puffy eyes, clothes sodden

Stand in the heat of the threat-

Smiling, slyly saying I haven’t forget

Your mine!
