The Lives of Ten Famous Americans

'The Lives of Ten Famous Americans'

A basket of bodies bonded together
With their hands held high
Planted and sprouted from African fields of coco beans
Black earthly hands held high
Ten fingers like fragile toothpicks
Skeletal hands starved of life held high
Sand monster from sandcastle
Hands with tidal waves growing in palms held high
Disjointed and damaged with blood oozing from fingertips to forearms
War takes its last breath with hands held high
Fresh from the cradle
Barbie doll hands crawl to the surface still held high
A basket of bodies bonded together
With their hands held
United
and high
