    Struggling under da blaze
    plantation breed in a maze
    two cents and rice
    fighting to roll da dice
    ear of corn
    when da baby born
    not my child
    i'm a field hand of piles
    land of 40 miles
    no mule to ease da blisters
    to thy feet so raw
    struggling in poverty
    as my soul belong to unknown
    forth i won't be as he please
    whip lashies to back side
    beaten to my knees
    sun burnz yet my spirit yearnz
    to have and hold
    da flame is never tame
    yet i'z da blame again
    with sixty seven fifty five
    one cow
    two duckz
    three hogz
    a battered broken queen
    we still have pride
    paying with life
    and salty bitter dream
    i see da buckeye peas
    beyond da out house
    collars in da west
    eastly grain springing
    seeds come forth
    yet i hear da cry
    the slavation
    as i reach for my
    resperation and hold on
    this my farmland

    As I envision our people in this farmland, I see strong spirits holding on despite the horrid conditions and treatment. Thanks for painting this picture poet.
