colonialism 3.0

fool me twice shame on me

too black or too white
it’s [sadly] what this world
has been about for far too long

what have we become
incapable of coming close
to honoring the easiest of pledges

forgive me lord for I have sinned
for having believed
I possessed another [human being]
as a simple piece of property
