Demetrius Robbins 1983 (Pennsylvania)

As an American patriot once full of bravery,
I now sit alone in the woods scared to return to slavery.
I wash my hands in the blood of the innocent,
While my people suffer in this renown administration
I cry everyday because of the heat that's put upon me
I refuse to sleep because I'm afraid I may be slaughtered by my enemy
I cry for those who have no shelter from the pain
I cry for the children whose parents are murdered in this country's domain
I cry constantly, because there's no help from this Biden's administration
They are like wolves at my door, waiting to shed innocent blood and defamation.
