Sign of Revolution

by Abolitionist

I’m not exactly sure what was going through my mind as
Sounds of roaring crowd echoed in my head
Bowed now, eyes beholding my feet on the pedestal as
Hands other than my own placed around my neck
Chains, visions of past flashed, but these were 
Chains of gold bestowed upon 
“First place winner in 100 meter dash,” says announcer as
Bowed head rises, right arm stretched high as if to signal change with
Black fists…

The crowd grew speechless.
