12 years a slave

I watched 12 years a slave

And reflected on a lifetime of shame,

That must never be forgotten 

And that still requires change,

How man can treat each other that bad

Is inexcusable and sad,

That man can be so cruel and brutal

In the name of colour which is futile,

Carried out by men lacking intellect

Just greedy men with no respect,

For life or anything else I suspect,

That they can treat their fellow men as slaves

And demean them in this barbaric way,

And we wonder why they have trouble

To forgive and forget,

I do not class the past as the best period

In human history,

In which there was only shame not victory

Dispicable in every way,

And terrible ugly blot on humanities page.
