Terzanelle for Octavia Estelle Butler

Racism and violence were non-existent in this world

Of fiction, where the black women rescued the white men

To love, while the secrets of slavery were unfurled.



In science fiction, there was a leading light and a ben

Called Octavia Estelle Butler, or Junie in dreams

Of fiction, where the black women rescued the white men.



She wrote about power, disease, incest, love and screams.

Self-destructive violence and hierarchical tendencies

Called Octavia Estelle Butler, or Junie in dreams.



In a sad world of poverty and dependencies,

Without having a father, she learned to fight against

Self-destructive violence and hierarchical tendencies.



Maybe to feel superior in struggle was sensed,

When people were aware to fight for identity.

Without having a father, she learned to fight against.



In a world of mutes, Estelle found a new entity.

Racism and violence were non-existent in this world,

When people were aware to fight for identity

To love, while the secrets of slavery were unfurled.

Racism In Poetry

Prejudice cannot be hidden,
Arrogance for the color of skin.
Its ugly head is here again
Racism is lurking within.

Disguised as mere poetry
Seething hatred shouts,
Name calling carelessly-
Gangrene inside out.

Our blood is all red-colored
Our hearts all colored rainbow,
Racist poems you authored
Your character, they show.

I was not brought up to be mean,
To racism I am not bent,
If that's where you have been
It's such a waste of your talent.





'A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, a man of understanding is even-tempered.'

Proverbs 17: 27

'Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.'
Proverbs 10: 14

No You Don't. AND, You Wont

'I am getting increasingly uncomfortable,
With all of this racist talk.'

That may be an honest admission,
You have openly stated to give...
For all to hear!
However...
This has not prevented you,
From committing acts of racism.

'Well...
You see...
That's where you and I disagree.
There is a difference in committing,
Acts of racism.
Than there is in the admitting of them done.'

I see!

'No you don't.
AND, you wont!
NOT from me!
I shall remain forever discreet.'

  68.     

It Is A Tragic Time We Live In

It is a tragic time we live in with the violence in the World of today
For God and for National fervour the price in death is huge to pay
Two wrongs never ever make a right or words to that effect the wise say
It did take more than one side without a doubt to start the war of us against they,
Our political leaders are our reflection mirror for our predicament we have ourselves to blame
By giving power to the fear and war mongers some seek glory in acts of shame
Patriotism and Religion have led to more deaths through violence than any other two things one could name
And human blood it is shed by the barrel for the power hungry in their lust for fame,
In a World of redneck racism the rose of peace is in decay
They cannot be brought back to life the dead people in their graves forever they lay
Billions are spent on the manufacturing of war weaponry whilst people of hunger are dying
For the making of deadly weapons of mass destruction the gift of life to others they are denying
And because of Racism, God and Patriotism millions are condemned to suffer and die
And war by the so called good waged on evil is such a despicable lie.
