Poetry

His-Story

Gimme a time machine

A pen

And a couple bullets

 

I gots history to rewrite 

boats to sink 

'fore they explore 

steal the land from its people 

it's people from their land 

 

'fore they write His-story 

cross our names off our work 

put their faces on our tales

 

Gimme a time machine 

A pen 

And a couple bullets 

 

If my words don't work

Then Ima take a page out their book

And take back what's rightfully mine

B.B. John
