Let Us Eat

by
Time and time 
Again, 
Our mouths twitch 
For the truths unsaid, 
Lips quiver 
And tongues whisper 
For a taste of freedom 
Again.
 
Quench the thirst 
Of those pleading, 
Cracked lips bleeding though smiling.
Black boys dreaming though dying, 
Justice failing but we’re still trying 
To live without appetite 
To never ask for a bite 
Of fulfillment
But rather remain full.
 
Let us eat.
