THE LAST TRUE HUMAN BEINGS

What’s the identity of the Spirit hiding behind “Manifest Destiny” –
Is it holy or unholy –
That is, God or Satan?

When white Americans use the term “Manifest Destiny” –
They mean God has given them all of this country
To work hard and become successful in –
But when the descendants of the victims hear those same words
It’s like a deep bronze bell tolling – “Death, Death – endless Death”
Along with “Rape, Robbery, and vile Murder” – on a genocidal scale.

Hundreds of thousands of Native Americans suffered mortally
Over the course of being cleared off their own lands –
In order to open the door to the introduction of millions of black African slaves –
Financed by Boston, New York, Philadelphia and, of course, London banks
That excitedly turned millions of human beings into dust – that is, “gold” dust –
To float back into the pockets of their European-American and European customers.

Yes, cruel centuries of black people’s sweat and pain were extracted
Over stolen Native American lands –
Capitalized by white men’s gold –
Violent greedy men –
Heartless paternalistic men –
Who, then, as now, cherished their unique ability to repress any crime –
Especially the largest ones
“Romantically” exchanging huge genocidal crimes
Into “God-approved” Manifest Destiny ones.

You can call it a murderous centuries-long genocidal “rape”
If you’re related to the victims –
Today, known as the last true human beings on earth.

EVERYONE WANTS THE SAME THING

Everyone wants the same thing –
A good community for their children to grow up in
And, if their descendants so choose, the same place for future generations.

People want a meaningful God to worship –
A God who encourages goodness, spontaneity, and creativity.

People want love between husbands and wives to be and remain real,
And freedom for their children to “be themselves,”
Along with friends who they’re happy to spend time with
As well as an openness to joy – (not just satisfaction or happiness)
But pure joy.

They want to experience the world getting better
With violence, nihilism, and hatefulness falling away.

They want their intellectuals to have common sense –
While still preferring to “think for themselves” –
And they’ll take all the time necessary to sort through
The value of what they’re presented with
So as to make intelligent-loving decisions.

Everyone wants the same thing –
Good neighbors – (next door, county, state, and country) –
And they’ll also want to know that, as they age, they’ll be on a natural arc
Of becoming more loving, more wise,
And more accepting of others.

Finally, they want God to be their best friend –
A God who’ll walk out ahead of them, pointing out what’s good,
What they should seriously treasure, and, ultimately,
What’s important to be retained for life beyond our physical life –
The one we can’t now see or experience, but hope will be there
When it finally comes time for us to go.
