the Dream dynasty

in the year 2100

he’ll the unify the lands
and lead four billion

he’ll ride a black rhino
carry a diamond spear
and a platinum shield

she’ll not hide her black
no

she’ll not fear
for the life of the child on her back

and her bosom will feed
more
than her womb can bear

and those who forgot
where they came from
will look and stare
wishing to come home
