And old slave chant (on the boatyards of the Chesapeake)

Sweet yella corn fo’ de boats
Sweet yella corn ain’t fo’ de goats
Bushels ta grind but gimme de cob
To wipe the arse o’ Massa Bob!

--1814, Maryland

(I'd like to send this to Bill and Hillary Clinton so they'll know what they're messing with).

I feel you there Brother Chambers. I'm sick of all the pandering. Hillary just wants political legacy, she don't want real change or else she wouldn't have bowed to the Managed Health Care lobby when she was First Lady for 8 years. That's long enough to change anything if you are serious and in power.

Many poets were born of the painful era(s) in our history. Thank you, Mr. Chambers for sharing that here.
