Man & Land

sliver

“Man come up on the land…he claim it…’The land of my pa and my ma is MY land,’ he say. Other man come over an’ say, ‘No, this land belonged to MY pa an’ ma. I want it back.’ No one ever ask what the land got ta say about it though. We all up on its back claiming to be its chosen tramplas, but we ain’t ask it for its two cents. Land be yellin’ too. Spittin’ fire, cryin’ big ol’ tears. Take a whole generation of us out in one swoop. Come outta nowhere too. SMACK! Man don’t pay no mind though. It’s not in his nature. Man gotta hear from himself fo’ he believe anything.”
