‘American equality’

An ‘American equality’
based on assimilation
so how are we free?
when this assimilation
creates class pedigree:

they would rather we leave
they would rather build thick walls
& separate our families
bleed our ‘countries’
& blame the seeds
steal our culture
& teach our history

It’s a systemic. servile parity.
endemic to the hyphened pledge-
on page #1 of the settler’s philosophy
on being self evident & manifest
above all that’s native
to this occupied continent

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
