A Black epic, playing on Martin Luther King’s famous speech "I Have a Dream"

The Dream Comes Through

J. Malcolm-Evans

 

BLK Jr. had a dream…

Of freedom and equality for every man and race

For peace and love and unity throughout time and space

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

Many did not see it…

The thought of liberty and sameness was their mind-blot

The way to accept “all men were created equal” they found not

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

Much more were scared stiff…

What would my life, my advantage, my benefits be

If everyone had my power and were just the same as me

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

Who would I dominate, negate…

The Niggers, the Poor, the Jews, people to abuse

God, the heavenly Father, denies them, obviously they’re ours to refuse

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

Bandits rallied for their cause…

Fighting to squash the peaceful gospel of liberty’s plan

Terrorists were they, indiscriminately destroying both woman and man

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

 

Ku Klux Klan, brutish band…

Without worthwhile, honourable, constructively civil cause to defend

Night Roamers, cloaked in black from head to toe, fully destroyed innocent men

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

Public leaders applied subtle deceptions…

“Divide and conquer” was the doctrinal seed of mistrust

Bringing forth bountiful harvests of evil deeds: divisions, discord and dire lust

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

But others had eagles’ eyes…

Souls in whom the far-off vision refused to die

Resisting in spirit and body, their moans, groans to God did fly

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

The humane cause kept alive…

Through valleys, over mountains, across oceans, upon plains

On animals’ backs, by weary feet, flying planes, on ships and trains

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

The “impossible” dream lives on…

Today, time’s changing quicker than the blink of the eye

The proof is in; this eternal revelation from above can never die

In each and every community, city, country, continent.

The revolutionary lineage of “Obamas” is born

Finally, it’s realized the dream is real… true

The dream has come through!
