Legacy Building Machine

John Henry

is challenged

loved

like

he is despised.

A

hero with no

days

off

like the

kids

today

seeing

glorified

empires

reality

television

rated

PG to

cartoon

violent

games

that grow

into

grand theft auto – Baltimores

and

leaders who

forgot respect for

Thurgood

and babysat

inch

by

inch

scandal

potential

being

disconnected

watching

kids

watch

gunning

games

bent

on

an

end

with

urban

paramilitary

survival.

It’s

Big Ben Tunnel

vision

outside

West Virginia

with

visions

of what we

are and

how we

now

show

the

cares/wares

of

John

Henry

aka

Neal Miller

Folklore

Legacy

Building

Machine(s).

John Henry

Frizzell

and

Freddie

Gray

and

me

[we]

cripted

in

our

own

blood

in the third century

but

loved

like

[we] despise.

a

president too

with

no

anger

Management

cept

when

tabled

reading

Dante

in

his

own

divine

comedy.

Work

is his

athletics, law,

postal service,

police force,

army,

air force,

navy,

marines,

medicine,

government,

social,

sanitation,

political,

educational,

performances.

He

laid track

with his back

to expanding the nation

from Crispus Attucks

and Peter Salem

Harriet, Phyllis

Soujouner

Ain’t

s/he

mankind?

.And now

with sledge in both hands

little time for the machine

race to slip bye;

little patience

in his own

house

he drives

stakes in competition

with the crowd.

It

fusses

criticizes

animal like

its

mory povitch

and

fumes and

funds

programmed

failures

with

the machines

and trains

never

derailed

and directly

behind

him.

The reigning champion

with whistles

and jears

clicks and clamor

what rivets and spikes

are driven

in reaction…

deeper

into the

souls

of

black folks

and

the

Legacy

Building

Machine.

Work

John Henry

is challenged

Stop

competing

like

another

machine.

Legacy

kids

are our

survival.

They

are

a

love

like

we

despised.
