trail of tears

trail of tears

I cry a trail of tears
from the shores of Sierra Leone,
land of Mandigo
and Ashanti,
where ships swollen with betrayal
by bloodless hearts
sailed and sailed and sailed
over pious canons and civil creeds,
feeding colored limbs to circling sharks
when they could row no more.

I cry a trail of tears
through the haunted hills of Mississippi,
land of Choctaw
and Cherokee,
where wagons loaded with betrayal
on tireless wheels
rolled and rolled and rolled
over signed statutes and sealed deals,
crushing colored spirits
'til they could fight no more.

I cry a trail of tears
to the parched walls of Auschwitz
crypt of Sephardi
and Ashkenazi,
where ovens stoked with betrayal
by crazed Krauts
burned and burned and burned
through hair and flesh and bone,
scorching a million souls
'til they could scream no more.

This p-o-g-r-o-m trail of tears

I cry.
