But now, [YeHoVaH], You are our Father.
We are the clay and You are our potter,
We are all the work of Your hand. – Isaiah 64:8

Color me sienna,
Ferruginous earth –
Reddish-brown pigment
Eliminating figment –
Invented fiction
Faux prediction
Cursed affliction.

Ham’s descendants,
America’s tenants,
Allotted magnitude –
Blackness, servitude,
Racial hierarchy idea
Perceptual diarrhea –
Principal causation
Of slavery justification.
