Samuel and Langston for Missouri Scribes
Enter from two sides of the Equation
Where white men own black men and Slaves are born.
One is a Writer and one is a Bard.
I wish I owned one half of that dog there
I would kill the half of the dog that’s mine
must be a Puddinhead to think these things
What else could he be he hasn’t a care.
No white man is going to give me my due
What is the point in discussing much more?
For Being Literature it has the Force
to imitate and to make it profound
It is the human soul entire squeezed
like a lemon or a lime into ( ) words
