Stolen Gold

The old wrinkled hand
covered with stolen gold

Lands bloodied and people sold
sold to the highest bidder
bartered
demonized
you are now a sinner..

Culturalized in the eyes
of a conquistador
colonized
institutionalized
with no rights

A history of genocide
covered and buried
under systematic lies
devised to divide
under the holiest of designs

Patriarchal blessings
left families raped
and oppressed in
their own continent

There is no conscious
There is no justice
There was no condolence 

As the hands digits
decomposed
bones still clenched
stolen gold
