Land of the free, home of the brave-
a chant that’s engraved in our brains,
forgetful of the enslaved that came over in chains,
and which descendants profited from their strain?
The line would imply it is the ‘free’,
yet one was found hanging from a tree,
every twenty-eight one dies in the street
and lest not forget the largest percent of missing
black women, Are. You. Listening?
