Mother Africa
robbed and raped for centuries.
No one seems to care.

Black flesh locked in chains,
separated from loved ones.      
Death their only friend.

Starved in ghettos like
societal excrement.      
Objects with no voice.

Nameless skeletons
cry out from the ocean floor. 
Pain beyond language.

By murdering blacks
the whole world can sleep better      
knowing it is free. 

Prompt: Ancient
