    Chains of poverty
    tangled around my waist.
    Beaten down by disgrace.
    gratifying memories of the promised land.
    A silver cup, never silver spoon.
    And the yoke of inequality.
    Peace a fabrication of my mind's eye
    Fear realities child.
    I’m a born again catastrophe
    Barefoot and beaten.
    Starved and thirsty for redemption.
    Cursed by my fellow man.
    I am the devil’s child.
    No justice for the laborer
    No justice for the land
    No justice for the ignorant
    No justice for the man
    Could it be I am imaginative?
    Or could it be I am a modern day slave.
