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
