We Remain In Cemented Disbelief

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Mayan texts were burned.
Egyptian monuments,
Were tampered and disfigured.

The Chinese were first to map the seas.
And we remain in cemented disbelief,
With a recreated history...
For purposes to deceive.

And Africans?
Well...
Who does not know,
They were the original kings and queens.

While those who are native of these shores,
Were quickly erased...
To be replaced.
