tv commercial declared,

“We all have an immigrant story.…”

no.

Africans were

kidnapped,

ripped away from villages,

ripped away from

everything they knew,

ripped away from

everyone they

loved,

yet America continues

in stubborn denial of this truth.

slavery was the engine

that made this nation

great--

no 60 second commercial

can tell this story.

no name

for the wandering

refugees

born in this still troubled land,

caught in the vise-grip of American glory.
