The Ancestors Speak
Poem By:
John Angus Jacobs

We’ve lived through persecution, mutilation, social devastation, excruciating pain;
Bondage, shackles, thrashings, bashing;
the ravaging of the motherland… 


We’ve survived starvation, dehydration, inflammation, that horrible trip;
Tossing, tipping, constant dipping, sea sickness, the belly of the ship…

 

american struggle with slavery.2

We’ve endured indignation, humiliation, sequestration, the stripping of our souls;
Desecration, degeneration, castration, the market place, being sold…  

 

We’ve drudged through war, brother against brother, blood, Mason Dixon, the blue and grey;
Destruction, emancipation, reconstruction, forty acres, broken promises;
What mule;
No pay…   

We’ve overcome racism, discrimination, segregation, deprivation, generations of being second class;   
alienation, degradation, mortification, all sorts of derogatory;
Thank god, free at last…   

Now we live with a simulation of freedom, equality,
prosperity, liberty, and justice for all;
The black,
the green, 
africa-in-america


the red,
the white,
the blue;

African, American;
Standing strong;
Standing tall…

So never, never, never, never, never;
Forget!!!           HarmoniousBlankCod-size_restricted
