Middle Passage Remembrance

Here is an island chain

Each head a stepping stone

Floating in seas of blood

Deep sighs the ocean

Africa to America

With each head counted

Deep throbs the ocean

Mother tongue lost to them

Lost with identity

Flesh without dignity

Roars with the ocean

Cry you across the sea

Cry you across the years

Deep in the hurricane

Toussaint stone dead in France

Hear and remember
