The world is just vinalla ice cream without the sprinkles that are creative people.


I have to
Stop them
Help them
I have to stop this terrible cycle
I have to stop this terrible cycle
That property being stolen
The lives of those people being stolen
I must hunt them
I must hide them
I have to get them back to where they belong
I have to help them get out of here
Those people who dare to help a slave!
Those slave drivers keeping people captive!
I have to stop this terrible cycle
I have to stop this terrible cycle
I have to stop them
I have to save them


The author's comments:
This is a double voice poem where all the odd lines are spoken from the point of veiw of a slave owner, and the even lines are spoken fromt he point of view of a person who works on the underground railroad.
