AMERICA, CHAOTICA

Frances faces the frantic flogger
His sweat and fear visible from the Mount of Safety
“Let’s have this conversation
…shall we?
What at all did us black do to some of you?”

II
Matthew looks at him with disdain
“You’re everything we’re not
You can bleach to be us
…but we can’t bleach to be you
You have manhoods like rods
…we just make do with our small brooms
So you sweep our women off their feet
While your women run after you
…like their stolen jewels
You’re flooding our country
…in a population-overtaking threat
And you ask what you did to us?”

III
So Matthew flogged Francis
…till he lost his senses and shot him dead
Forgetting the land which gives him power
…got its source from the bloodline of his victim
How the strongest stands helpless
For the weakest to treat them heartless
Always beats my imagination

IV
But that is how far America has come
Masks of hatred falling off
Making way to the real faces of racists
…who act monsters and still find ways
…to put their monstrous blames on their victims

V
A time is coming the broken will break before his breaker will breathe
…around him
Because even frogs vomit if they’re forced to drink too much water
So continue building prejudices in your minds and that of your wards
There are feet who will use them as bridges
…to climb to their successes
Leaving you as useless as your dirty white thoughts
I see that time in the approaching future

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)

It seems there are lots of bad ones, not few. From the everyday scandal pertaining to racism coming from there. As if they train them to kill blacks either on the spot or gradually. The United States has become a dreadful place for Black people, sad that they helped build those states.
