What if Nat Turner’s Rebellion had succeeded. Maybe he would

Have birthed a trend, the way protests now bloom viral following black

Bodies are rendered fallow. Would people still root for a Nat

Who craved additional sumptuous fare; to exist without charge sweet inside his mind

Like cane-cum-refined sugar his hands on one occasion cultivated,

Or the way a cotton shirt reminded his fingers of the pluck

Of white bolls he hated. Today’s revolt, to be brave enough a knee

In a nape where it’s summarily planted or slow a bullet’s trajectory,

John Woo-style, earlier to it landed. These thoughts rise up

Like discontent-lined hymns to shorten bondage, planter eulogies

Sown, hoed, with every one other accompanied by flowering amid sonorous darkness.

A deep affection of jesus grew Nat’s bravery skyward inside lofty sway

From bondage to freedom. To wit, one has to reap carefully

To glean the long-buried dead. Dismay mourns

The insurrections of the past while fearing

The sharp uprising never completely going down while planned.

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
