LISTEN TO
Naked we are
born.
What will be our
legacy
when we are
long gone?

HAIKU POEM
ROSALIENE BACCHUS

Never before have I seen this nation
stripped so naked from its creation.
Mama can Obama release us from Osama
or have we hid behind the bushes so long,
we'll never be calmer?
Hillary help me see a higher ground;
songs in the key of life that turn a frown.
For if the youth is our future then Oprah's
closer than folks give her credit for.
Spend the arms money on education honey;
then the jokes on America won't be so funny.
'Cause not one teen can name films of Fred Astaire
or write a proper letter to their mayor.
Let them play Mortal Kombat - their sensitivity faded
then send more troops to decimate the decimated.
On Judgment Day, will we all be naked?
Will we still lust even before the Sacred?

A world so savvy, they remixed the canonization:
faith's a hard sale to the scholars of this nation.
Who will laugh last, The Gnostics or Opus Dei?
Will the Rastafarians smoke their sins away?
Other cultures eat their food and talk their talk.
My people stripped naked, oblivious of fault.
Our greatest ancestors are the Bible's antagonists.
It is why our faith is tainted by our fists.

We're secular sacred until hatred's stripped naked.


Poem from In My Eyes: Rich, Naked & Sexy by David
Dearborn, ROEN Publishing, New York, USA, 2007.

Stripped Naked

OUR LEGACY
Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light
of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive
selfishness.
