Blacks in Stacks in Fear in Facts

A Stage Play by Sethnicity
"

A Brief History of Black America.

"

Black on black on black on black

Wood tar pitched and shackled back 

Back to back to back to back

Paid in full no matter man fact

priceless pain packed pickings to rack

crack the back of blacks to stack

paper to pay to paper for play and man

Who's black backs crack and snap

Crack sha clack to crack to Sha clack

 

Blood and labor and words no savior

On roads and rails and rocks on street blocks

Laws to wrap the black lack in locks 

dread locks and cops and knocks and knots

Locks and laws and loops from logs

backlogged black laws closed jaws and halls

freedom is someone who knows the walls

You live you learn you see no turn

so learn to know no way to earn

lose your job your home your wife

A way of life is guns and strife 

knot in back no friend but lack

black on black on black on black

 

Run from hoods in hoods and hide

when the moon is full in a land of lies

Sun by day means mad men by night

Free from chains but not from spite

for them deny and then deny 

deny deny deny deny 

Washed away with whittle white sight

We musta been wrong when white is right 

 

Cops on blocks in shops and hops

Watch for the Man on beat on stops

Crack on corners and broke back moms

peddle from job to job then sob

Mom and Dad Divorced by workforce

Paid pennies cus many "Too dim of Course!"

Get back, You black, No Slack, Take That

can't pay em the same they'll ruin our aim

For Good and Power and money to reign

From hungry to dummy to nummy and slain 

held down by Presidents Planters and Pain

The Pain so well ingrained in brain

  

So train a child the way to grow

Get Money, Get Power, Get Good to Go

Get Smart was said, but a hard road to hoe

Some Rattle some Crackle 

some Dream some Battle

Moving the movement by Marching the Capital

But capital got capped and Anger got tapped 

burning the bridges extended tween US

When Fed help medicate minds but menial

The gun clap on black when black on back

burn the bridge we all worked to track

but silent echoes sha clack sha clack 

Attack is back so black react

 

We gamble on gravity with coin of Change

knowing the game ain't geared for gain 

ignore the lack of footing in rain

For certain it's curtains yet playing the same

blinders on triggers on surprise when maimed

Forgotten the root so strange fruit ain't strange

Aged in grief raged in street 

surprise when lame, inflamed, in heat

We old in defeat deranged and weak

should have been focused on governing seats

Youth forgot when work was sought

In a world wide web the mind was bought

Trapped in chains unseen yet wrought 

To dream is deemed an impure thought

Wonder why kids abandoned the plot

A dream deferred is a dream forgot

When truth repeats the gears don't stop

When voting is bought the truth gets locked

in cycles, in history, in catch phrase, and pop!

Black and White in Chains Distraught

Distraught no thought with teeth dry rot

the lot has rot and lost its hot

Slavery Antiquity and Dreaming De' mode'

Truth is Questioned and Fiction la Mode'

Truth is Fact too black for show

So Back too Black to Act just mold

Anger and fear our coal to hold

remember regret, let go, too bold

So revolt loose canary for gold….

too late to leap the mind will fold

the future looks cold so cold so cold

but the dice we roll and roll and roll...

 


But Why?

When Blacks in Stacks in Fear; The Facts.

Author's Note

Sethnicity
It's a mentality steeped in greving, I can't wait for all communities of humans to get to the Forgiving stage of grief.. the one not mentioned because it's so closely related to Healing. I'll be the first to admit that I'm striving for the Forgetting stage... but I am not there yet, but I'm trying Ringo, I'm trying real hard to find the God in Me.

Yes, it's good. In fact, it's one of the more powerful reads I've seen here.
...but that's alas, this jazz, one who knows
the life, the lies, the cops'n hos
the doors we rush, the ones that close
around in circles the stories goes.

...so back to back, this black on black.

Excellent read that should be posted elsewhere also,
Thanks for sharing
