Black Man...Extinct

by Precious2One

Deemed with negativity
Precocious to the day of conception 
Effervescently exploding 
from a black woman’s uterus 
Brought into existence…
So comely

The nation intolerantly waiting
to transgress this, this...
'Pedagogy of the Oppressed'
His disposition impaired
Vexed to the point of self destruction
Tragically…sometimes suicidal 

Impatient to apprehend 
and confiscate him
behind iron bars, made by them
used by them, ruled by them
Preserved in submission, 
So violated he’s persuaded
to deprive a brethren of life
And by self justification... 
they now delete him

Another believing he is free
Free only to be affronted by society
Because yes. he is over qualified
Even though posted… 
the identical job descriptions 
mirror his resume
Except it doesn’t say ‘black’
He walks away thinking irrational
His spirit, how broken murdered

Too hypnotized…
by the Caucasian world
who say…they now treat him equally 
But demanding more…much more
than his sisters ever needed
…the woman conceives his tragedy
A mulatto born to kill…
his precious, pure seed…
is now extinct.
