A Woman Scorn… 5 yrs later

For New Orleans… A Woman Scorn

She lies ravished Violently brutalized and depleted of all natural resources Left with little human contact Playing on the back of your conscience in market driven magazine plots Misleading media headlines that attempt to downsize the reality Of facing America at its finest Drenched in undisrupted classrooms with empty hallways Inside of schools that can’t open because the students haven’t came back and The teachers can’t teach because the system decided it was better to lay them off than to fulfill their commitment of back payment She boils with the stew of empty kitchens where the only thing cooking is Toxic fumes, liquid waste and human remains Inside of houses that bear an X on the door to say that the Military has been there Where modern day pilgrims are now marching in to conquer the stolen land of Residents that can’t make it back to their homeland because of lack of resources And no money which means no travel, No food, no work, no house, no home No help from the government that is But it’s not just the government that is the problem It is each of you that still sit complacent Waiting for the next person to help you out of your situation As if you can’t be them when you are them, just a few states away And although fema and the bush administration should have stepped in faster We should have acted years before by electing the right officials And learning that politics represents demographics And no vote means no voice And I’m mad that Katrina bears the marks of a failed system when It wasn’t Katrina that failed New Orleans but the good ole US of A And every other expert that cosigned on the dotted line and then Hid behind the military shield when the results revealed Errors that even a 5 year old mind would have knew didn’t add up And it still doesn’t add up when I see my brothers and sisters Dying in foreign countries to rebuild their land When ground zero sits less than a day drive away from my door step It doesn’t add up when we’re giving humanitarian aide to 3rd world countries While people die stranded here on our soil And don’t have jobs here on our soil And is forgotten right here And we pay tax dollars to build democratic systems In third world countries when G. W. Bush and his gang Has made a pure mockery of our democracy And after all the lies And phone tapping, Oil stealing Non Bin Laden catching Vacationing Lack of action taking situations that he’s placed this country in, No on hollered impeach But they were ready to send Clinton to jail for getting a blow job. She lies silently waiting for revenge that even Da Vinci knew would eventually come Silently allowing the pilgrims to rebuild on the new voodoo soil where souls perished Vowing to remember those that turned their backs on the innocent Bound by death requests to make those that forgot, remember And they will rebuild beautiful homes on stilted legs With levees strong enough to withstand 3 Katrina’s And business will boom in a new tourist society With beautiful hotel rooms and tours that will escort visitors to the ninth ward To the astrodome, To the superdome where devastation hit Up and down the streets of New Orleans And she will sleep until they have rested comfortably In their ignorant bliss And then she will strike with the vengeance of a woman scorn.
