Magnificent Beasts

   
you have    
chased and chased and chased    
like I'm some exotic animal..    
to be hunted like wild game    
scattered throughout urban jungles    
and broken villages    
haunted by a history deliberately shoved    
into such a narrow context    
for one much broader than your books  
would ever suggest. ..    
harvested my organs..my DNA. .    
snatched my afterbirth    
bled my existence    
then returned to collect my afterdeath...    
you'd hedge bets against my soul    
if only it too was a commodity wouldn't you?..    
predict my doom    
carefully place every obstacle    
then reap the rewards...    
you've watched me for centuries...    
yes..you watch...    
   
while i see    
see past you    
see your past in your future    
public floggings..    
spiritual executions...    
if you can't control it you'll put it down    
without hesitation    
can you see your destination    
i wonder...    
or are you still plagued by that blind spot    
claiming the hierarchy of bloodlines..    
while excusing the debt of ancestors    
tunnel vision is a mutha. .    
well..stay tuned...    
the channel is about to switch real soon...    
let's hope when it does    
you're not still out there chasing    
magnificent beasts. .
