a man on an island, removed from himself,
no place in his world for him..
savage nature proclaimed,
reasons to be slain run the gamut of
civilizationís justification.. his darkness
goes against the light..
the light he brings may ignite a war..
more welts upon his sore back, he can stand..
they cannot stand by
while he becomes a man.. of this world,
yet alien.. the mayhem
may have been attributed to missionaries,
but they possessed a good
book.. land taken in exchange..
processed trees for natural resources..
divorced from his way of life..
a life with no meaning before them..
saviors with behavior modification degrees..
sent to appease the kings and queens..
save the beast, teach him to say please.. grant him
degrees in outsiderism.. construct buildings
to house advanced student bodies..
pay rolled into society, destined
to return.. further the cause of his allegiance to massa..
natural disaster caused by heavy chains..
false knowledge reigns.. painstakingly,
he plays the game of life.. a grafted knife
inserted with care..
with hopes that st. nickel-less will always be there...
