I’ll Let This One Speak For Itself

 

Your Battlefield Is Your Very Own Body!

You don’t need a pair of fatigues
or to get shipped out to foreign lands.
Your battlefield is your very own body;
before and after, they cuff your hands.

They blind you with canisters of tear gas,
turning your tear-filled eyes, a fiery red.
For you cannot protest over one of your own,
just trudge through the cemetery to bury your dead.

There is no dignity on a coroner’s slab,
as they dig the bullets out, one by one.
Organs in a jar, weighed and tallied,
while a jury says, “No harm was done!”

Your mother and your sister shed crocodile tears.
And look to politicians to hear their pleas,
not understanding that this was all planned.
But the shame of slavery, your death will not ease.

The blood of the dead; slaves one and all,
cry out for vengeance as they walk with you.
Your ancestor’s features are carved on your face,
and the ‘white’ man and his fate will rendezvous.

There will be no mercy for the cruel and the heartless.
And when the chains enslave him, the whips lash his back,
as he displayed no mercy for his hapless captives,
slaves freed by death will rise up and attack.

Though he may beg for mercy, calling to his ‘god’,
the day of reckoning has come at last
and he shall be made to pay for the blood he spilled;
both in present day and for days long passed.

‘It looked like an ocean’: Severe Midwest flooding could last all spring

How many Black people do you see with Mike Pence who is in the Midwest thanks to massive flooding?

The blood of the dead; slaves one and all,
cry out for vengeance as they walk with you.
Your ancestor’s features are carved on your face,
and the ‘white’ man and his fate will rendezvous.

Flooded out whites in a Red Cross shelter. Hmmm…I don’t see any Black folks there.

There will be no mercy for the cruel and the heartless.
And when the chains enslave him, the whips lash his back,
as he displayed no mercy for his hapless captives,
slaves freed by death will rise up and attack.

Yes, as they say, it looks like an ocean…a very dirty brown ocean. Keep looking. Only more of the same will continue.

Though he may beg for mercy, calling to his ‘god’,
the day of reckoning has come at last
and he shall be made to pay for the blood he spilled;
both in present day and for days long passed.

By all means, rebuild and next year this time, even that much will not be visible.

Nothing but pale-assed parasites postulating over what to do about historic flooding that they are powerless to do anything about.

Your mother and your sister shed crocodile tears.
And look to politicians to hear their pleas,
not understanding that this was all planned.
But the shame of slavery, your death will not ease.

We may be shedding tears thanks to gentrification, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass incarceration, income inequality, racist police murdering us with impunity, drug saturated communities and the list is endless, but those whites who are being impacted by ‘historic flooding’ have not begun yet to shed tears and despite Mike Pence dragging his pale ass over to the Midwest to assess the damage, there is not a damn thing he can do about that massive shit pile that’s left because this was ALL planned right from the beginning when this land was stolen from the true inhabitants, the Indians, and was built up by my ancestors. Your pale asses are NOT going to continue to profit even as you continue to ignore the fact that you are just as evil, depraved and debased as what hatched your parasitic asses and for that reason, you will continue to stand somewhere and bemoan the loss of your possessions because that is all that you are, fucking useless possessions. That is the very substance of your pathetic parasitic life! The death of life as you’ve known it, will still not ease the shame of our continued slavery. Your ‘white privilege’ couldn’t stop your shit from getting flooded out, but your Grand Wizard, Mike Pence, to the rescue, right? HA! That’s laughable! What’s coming for your ass hasn’t even begun to impact you! Not by a long shot!

  1. Hey Miss Courtland, Did you hear about the news on Charlottesville High School and that a 17 year old which of course is someone who is most likely white and that he was making school threats about wanting to kill black and hispanic students there? I can’t stand them!

  2. I apologize Miss Courtland for not saying how brilliant this post was, I totally forgot to say it. Do you think you can delete that previous comment that I’ve posted? =)

    • There is no reason to delete your other comment. I have been too consumed by rage to respond to it and so I did not. I was able to thank Kelley for her compliment on this one because I was not enraged by her comment. Some days, the news is simply too much for me and so I tend to abstain from making comments and give myself time to “Let the smoke clear” before I respond. I’m still not done yet, but your comment was no insult to me.

      I thank you for it even as I am consumed by rage over what happened and what continues to happen in Charlottesville and elsewhere.

    • Well if you mean that those pale-assed parasites are now integrating with brown flood waters, then yes they are. But those pale-assed parasites are mostly all up in those areas of this country by their lonesome. I am sure that I could count on one hand the numbers of Black people who were impacted by those flood waters. The middle of the country basically only contains pale-assed parasites and if you watch even one video of those parasitic leeches, you will not see one Black face in the crowd. I know, I haven’t. That is why I am filled with absolute glee when I see the pictures coming out on their flooded out shit! And they can just expect more of the same! The flooding will continue and it is so bad that one of those female parasitic leeches stated that she was “Done!” Apparently, this latest flood was its undoing. I don’t know where the hell its going to go because the shit they’ve done to others is just going to follow their worthless, depraved, debased asses!

      Thank you for your comment.
