    Thank you, but no thanks

    I'm not interested in
    buying lies by the bag
    not interested in
    pre-packaged bullshyt
    that has died
    inside the crate
    before it's sold
    Public schools perpetuate
    their fore fathers
    fallacies and everyone
    should know
    that

    *"history is a lie
    agreed upon"
    (quoted by Napoleon)

    by demokkkratics
    and republikkkins
    that have no kin
    that look like you
    or I
    We all should know
    some of the hidden
    truths uncovered
    through "our story"

    The pilgrims did not
    find an empty land
    no more than columbus
    discovered anything

    Those puritans didn't
    come to Jamestown
    seeking religious
    freedoms...they already
    had it back in Holland

    Thanks, but no thanks

    Personality politikkks
    antikkks, and conflikkkts
    lead to indigenous
    disrespect
    a form of Farmaggaden
    followed their demise
    indians were sold into
    slavery & burnt alive
    -- massacred in
    Massechusetts and
    mistreated even to this
    day....

    Thanksgiving... what?

    Thanksgivin' to celebrate
    the genocide of american
    indians-----

    Thanks, but no thanks

    I won't participate...
    What is there
    to be thankful for?

    -- For being treated as
    unwelcome in their own
    country?
    -- For being forced to
    live lives in small
    reservation "death" camps?
    -- For the 350 treaties
    signed by the United States
    and Native Nations
    then amerikkka looks
    on as every single one
    has been broken?

    Thanks, but no thanks

    I can't give thanks to a
    Plymouth Plantation
    where indians
    met europeans with
    violent confrontations

    Thanks, but no thanks
    I'll pass~

    N2,

    This here is the kind of poetry that needs to be put to rap music so our youth can hear some true history. Learning your history is like the underground railroad......a way out.
