Four Thousand Years Ago
Four Thousand years ago
The Nile ran red
Red with the blood of a people yearning for freedom!
Five hundred years ago
The Hudson ran red
Red with the blood of a people losing their homes to the new kids on the block.
Twenty years ago
Los Angeles burned
burned with the fires of hatred
of promises too long left unkept
Last week Egypt burned
burned with the fires of freedom
the dawn of a new era
and the worlds first bloodless revolution ever!
Four thousand years ago the Nile ran red
What color will it run for me?
Very nice imagery – lovely poem.
