SLAVERY

SLAVERY(by Irusota)

Through the North they came
And fled through the South

Through the dancing Sahara
Across the shores of Africa

They came with horses and raid our land
Taken us to a foreign land

With bond of chains slashed on our arm
All intended to do us harm

And a big rope tied to our hands
As we marched to a strange Land

Our culture they battered
And our mother's they murdered

Death rewards those who disobeyed
And so we marched without delay

Bruises full of blood on our face
As the masters increased their pace

And eyes were blinded with the dust
With some pools of blood

Our children taken away on a ship and were sold as a slave

We were robbed
And our women raped
From the evil masters who maimed

We were taken and captured
And daily we were tortured

They came and stole our history
With nothing left but pain and misery

Some were murdered and our children cried
The world became silent
even when we died.
