    Only a cold-blooded

    spill life from flesh &
    beat trees into
    the backs of souls


    Prized Livestock

    by Michael Davar Long


    Only an unnatural
    cold thirst is quenched

    with a calloused
    conceit of power &

    then corrupted into
    a cruel control

    that has caste
    the children of the sun

    into confederate chains
    of chattel captivity.

    Only an inhumane
    institution could
    legalize exploitation &
    dehumanize the image
    of the Creator
    into that 

    of a insane beast of burden
    manufactured to build
    fortunes for brutish
    but civilized barbarians.

    Only a cold-blooded
    savage animal
    could so easily
    spill life from flesh &
    beat trees into
    the backs of souls
    with whips that cracked
    countless wills
    into fragments &
    involuntary submission.

    Only a devil in disguise
    would dare to drown
    heaven's denizens with
    disdain and degrade
    them into a downtrodden
    object condition defined
    by destitution diabolically
    delivered by demons of despotic
    desire who demanded
    so much for oh so little.

    The Negro is America's most prized livestock,
    the very commodity that created Wall Street's
    first bull market which caused the United States
    to arrive at its present super sized spot. And
    though most American's today despise this thought,
    no one can deny the profits amassed from all the
    souls sold and the lives bought to exchange manual
    labor for inhumanity. The justification? The Vatican's
    sanction of enslavement under Pope Nicholas V's
    authorization of Dum DiversasThere are some
    rivers crossed that have my ancestors footprints
    embedded in their floors seeking to return to their
    culture which was shredded as Moors by whores
    for material wealth and temporal power. And now
    the children of the Antebellum South are building on the remains
    of their forefathers aims at this very hour, as the only matter
    that has changed is the transferal of property ownership
    because now the banks have the reigns that plantation
    masters once held along with the private prisons whose
    board of trustees profit from every Black body
    that is housed in one of their cells. The text books
    failed to inform you of this most innocuous fact,
    that the 13th and 14th amendments merely gave
    second class citizenship and privileges to Blacks,
    and not the sovereign status of the Constitution's
    framers or the land owners whose jurisdiction
    was supreme to the system that was known to hang us
    from trees like strange fruit. But today we're drafted from auction
    blocks to change routes when audibles are called
    or bang hoops for a trey or deuce with a round ball
    not to mention the words sang by groups or solo performers
    for company's who sell soul to the masses from the lives they've signed
    it's all modern day enslavement but to the adapted designs
    of the system, unfortunately, many of the enslaved descendants
    are deaf, dumb and blind. Never mind the millions that
    these new superstars have amassed, the dependency
    to the system and complexion of their skin still
    keeps them socially in the untouchable caste. Disconnected
    to the mission and out of touch with the past, allowed to
    slip through the cracks to experience a taste of American pizazz,
    lost living the dream with inflated egos from starring in events
    that cause people to scream in support of their physical prowess,
    without focus since the martyrdom of King and X it seems like
    it's been all struggle and no progress, still subjects to the laws
    of Congress who oppress the citizens of the United States
    with fictitious Amendments and silent Black Codes
    that straps holds on the Negro, so that in America
    no matter how far he may go his emancipation
    will always be quiritarian & never bonitary.

    The Blackman(State of Emergency)

    Are we Pawns in this thing? Check out The BlackMan(State of Emergency)on Youtube. We need to get our minds right! Peace!

    Thank you Michael.

    I didn't live during slavery. I'm a white man, and was a teen ager when MLKJr began his 'noise' on behalf of black people mainly, but many missed his greater point of anyone oppressed is the enemy of humankind. He had to start with the first things first(in the similar way Gloria Steinem began her moves for an egalitarian society by starting with the unequalness of women's roles in society), that of an unequal racial society bent to favor white people across the board(to be black and a woman is a double whammy it seems), and 150 years Post slavery still it favors white people as witnessed by wealth statistics, home ownership, prison populations, etc. When some whites attitudes say there's no race problem since we gave 'you people' a black president and you still whine(clearly they may never get it).

    I can't pretend to know what the black experience is like, but, need I starve to know the hunger in others? I learned long ago, once you get the message, hang up the phone and then act on what you heard. It began when the first black friends I had were treated differently from me, in my protests to the bigotry I became also a target. I vowed silently to fight back, but in more subtle ways, and I learned I could enact change better anonymously at times, than with obvious loudly calling people out for their bigotry and hatred. I also learned to be loud when needed and silent when needed, so, as MLKJr's Letter from a Birmingham jail speaking to those who felt not making a display, or demanding loudly to be heard, that their way had been tried for decades with little of the results necessary to change hearts and minds, that both methods are needed, and it was time for speaking out.

    Thank you Michael for informing us all of the way things are, and as I hang up the phone I search my mind for ways to correct the injustice in the world and in my locality.
