Nouveau Trial of Tears

0 points

Water, water, everywhere…

not a drop to drink

Tears running down parents’ faces

Brown water in the sink


From Flint, they will sprint

Politicians tried to save a buck

Colored water! Coloured faces

Did they give a fuck?


Switched the source, much remorse

Some think it is too late

School-aged children sure to die

Golden water, heaven’s gate


Urban crisis…Flint, Detroit

In our own backyard?

Children asking, “Our water too??”

Poker facing, will they see our card?


Clean water put out fires

Dirty politicians who we hire

How much till we tire?

Patience surely to expire!


That wasted water, we can’t drink

Sending fresh water, so we speak

“Mom, why are we moving?”

Tears falling, mom can’t speak


Mom’s packing our clothes

Dad is making calls

Those who CAN move, WILL

Those who CAN’T    F  a l  l


Like Katrina, government arrived late

Like Ferguson, government said WAIT

Like New Orleans, government: ” RElocate!”

Texas, here we come!!


Build a wall??

WE are coming from the North

Southern Belles, prepare your homes

You’ve been “Trumped” citizens coming forth!



Don’t you get it?

Don’t you care?!?

It’s not just in Flint!

It’s the American nightmare!


This neveaux trail of tears

Renewed death and fears

Politicians campaign smears

Victory brings no cheers…
