Dreams of Black Incompetence

We are looking again,
through misty dawns,
laden with empty,

promises of wealth,

not ours to hold,
or caress him with,
white man,

brother too,

or guide him by the hand,
to graze on greener pasture,

-fields of love-

Or raise him from this,
Deepest,
Sleep,
Dreams of black incompetence.

  8. Once again you’ve pared it down to simple truth – so simple we can’t pretend not to notice… I dream of a different tomorrow…

    Dreams of black incompetence, men tortured or killed, unfair laws, history that should not be forgotten,….a world within a world. Your poem is a sad poem but one that must be written.
