Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
This is about when people don't allow my people to be people
"My Tears" by xvi

I thought you might
Recognize my tears. They
Land on my mixed cheeks
That were made by those
Indios and runaways of
Yesterday. They run for my
Gente whom are caged or slaughtered por no mas de
Palabras de un pinche muro.
So do you recognize them
Now?

Author Notes
When mothers and fathers were killed in El Paso while back to school shopping, it was that moment many of us recognized we were being hunted for nothing more than our culture which is more American than apple pie. I will not translate the language here for those that don't know. There have been enough people saying speak English that I just won't dignify that in my own work.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
