Like Family


Learning to love in the rancid wake of 
integrity lost in the lake of our shallow 
forebears takes more grand character 
than you or I can make easy; both lost 
to the Black Messiah’s modern trials - 
judged and juried falsely - robbed of a 
freedom implied as only relevant to an 
unsanctified ignorance of supremacy 

But there we differed - we saw whole 
events in succession, learned that is 
the lies they told - believed our own 
eyes only and the friends we’d made 
in rainbow resonance concurred free 
of colour or prejudice like family
