Accusations Upon Accusations

Consid’r what I see here on earth

with my God-giv’n bifocals,

eyeing those in black and those in green,

arm’d with weapons of warfare,

snatching away our rights,

and detaiing us in their maggots-infect’d cells.

They refuse us a statement,

But investigations, they claim to have made,

and unbalanc’d, they accuse us by the plaintiffs’ statements,

forging accusations upon accusations against us,

refusing a bail to us,

and our own people, from seeing us:

food, they make us taste not

unless we oil their itching palms.
