If I

by Zamounde Allie

If I was to have one chance to go back into time
It would be to commit the ultimate crime
To take out Queen Isabella before she had the chance to grace
Columbus’s journey
To whisper in my brother’s ear not to tell this man about the currents
to the other land
To tell the Arab to keep pushin’ the Mediterranean block way beyond
the western stock
To tell Shaka to postpone his conquering and get ready for a sea evasion
To pass out to all my brothers around the world the biggest glocks
To take all the MRE’s and distribute them to the front for food
To give everyone else drugs to control their mood
To finally give the A-bomb to Africa
with the first code inserted
“Watch the northerner’s”
If I was you I’d go to America
Make allies with the red brother
The yellow
and the brown one’s too
There’s a war coming that involves all of you
Tell them that we’re of the same mother
That we should protect one another
and create the United Color Conservation Alliance (UCCA)
And force everyone else into compliance
If I
had one moment in time
