There’s A Price To Pay

There’s A Price To Pay

Someone is in debt.

People are owed for

forced services

rendered.

There’s no receipt to

be given,

no complete barter

existed,

labor was taken for

granted

as well as rights to live

freely.

For every hour the debt

goes unsettled

-interest rises.

Chances for a payment

plan are slim.

The full amount is due now!

For the mass physical,

psychological, historical

rapes,murders,lies

& other crimes intertwined

with slavery

& its after affects;

For every one of those

ways of disrespect

& those continuing

results as of now

…….…..…there will be a day.

For there’s a price to pay.
