    De’ Old Slave de Hypocrite

    De’ slave he talk about me, don’t want to be free,
    de’ man who hide behind de’ the slave an’ he talk about you;
    An’ Dat’s de way, the Charlie man, tell de’ master de’ plan,
    Tries to stop me from crossing, da’ river of de dead,
    That’s de uncle Charlie plan, he put de’ blocks in da’ way
    Lord de devil come in de’ black face.
    De’ slave with da’ whip upon da’ back,
    De’ slave try to make the master love him best.

    Old Black Man Knowable
    Ole man Know, the Hippocratic oath,
    Survival de slave man cry,
    All’s tongue, send de slave man to the shed.
    He jus know’d ev’rything under de sun
    Playing in the master house, de master say
    Good nigg—his best prize.
    He da’ outlaw lawyer, for da’ master
    Keep us nigg—in our plac​

    Thanks for sharing this piece poet it gives me a constant reminder of the past. Often times we get caught up in our day to day lives and dont take a moment out of our days to remember those who paved the way.
