Incarceration Nation: Where Jesus Would Be

Ronald Reagan initiated the War on Drugs, a de facto war on Blacks and the poor.
Sentencing reforms of ’84,
Congress enacted legislation that mandated and perpetuated Incarceration Nation;
Our youth to ex-communicated n concrete cages.
Pigs no longer lash with bullwhips,
today I’m beat with nightsticks.
Though I’m still told nigger stay in your place,
but to add insult to injury,
I’m sprayed in the face with mace.
I’m still handcuffed and shackled to a waist-chain,
yet I’m no longer cargo on a boat for the slave trade,
instead it’s a bus or they fly us on an airplane.
We’re still forced into labor, solitary, or the chain gang.
Either way we still only receive a slave wage.
Old pain masked by new names.
Penitentiaries replace plantations,
yet they serve the same aim–
Capitalism must be sustained!

Incarceration Nation

Muslims, political prisoners, prisoners of war, recalcitrant, malcontent, revolutionaries, those of influence, and plain old renegades
shall remain locked in a cage 23 hours a day, some for years, others for decades
day by day until they go insane, commit suicide, or break;
denounce your affiliation and accept indoctrination
but first and foremost capitulate by accepting your incarceration.
You all are mandated to participate in–

Incarceration Nation

For marijuana possession they received a life sentence,
now Colorado legalized and taxes it for big business,
million dollar profits.
Justice is blind.
We all know that’s a lie, lie, lie.
That’s why our sentence is twice the time of white guys who committed the same crime–
No, the judges say it’s true
Just blind to you, blind to the destitute.
I say, aint that the gospel truth?
And all are equal under the law,
yet one percent will never be treated as the poor.
And why mine is always the only black face in the court?

Incarceration Nation

Stop resisting! the pig screams
right before he hits me with a flash bang grenade.
Stop resisting! the pig screams
shooting me repeatedly with rubber bullets
Stop resisting! the pig screams
spraying two canisters of mace.
Cuffed shackled to a bed frame,
it’s called four point restraints,
thought its aka is stress positions
aka torture when used by the CIA
on those caged at Guantanamo Bay.
All these racist pigs who commit sadistic abuses in Amerikan prisons
profess to be Christians
go to church on Sundays
just as the slavemaster did,
while he whipped, raped, and lynched my foreparents,
pillaging the whole continent–

Incarceration Nation

To those who write, enforce, and protect unjust laws,
since a mere slave/prisoner,
I’ll humbly request a brief indulgence,
by asking that you riddle me this,
if Jesus were alive today would he live like Bill Gates,
or would he be locked in a cage twenty-three hours a day
in ADX, Lewisburg, or perhaps Guantanamo Bay?
Cuffed, shackled, and silenced as nothing more than a radical neoslave.
Would Jesus be told stop resisting,
while being beat to his knees, and
denied mail, visits, and phone calls to his family?
Would Jesus be convicted as a political prisoner,
similar to Mutulu or Aafia,
give a life sentence,
dehumanized and disrespected,
ignored with contempt and indifference,
subjected to having his food spit in,
sensory deprivation,
to impose behavioral modification?
Perhaps Jesus would work at McDonalds for $7.25,
denied a living wage.
Jesus would be of the oppressed and therefore criminalized,
targeted and bound to die by the pigs in another unjustifiable homicide;
or destined to live out his days in an Amerikan cage,
guilty of seditious conspiracy.
He’d be forced to be a prisoner–
Incarceration Nation!

Dedicated to my voiceless juveniles caged-in, those in solitary confinement, and to Latandra Ellington who was executed in a Florida dungeon; and Aafia Siddiqui framed by a racist system and all those caged-in 23 & 1, yet stand firm with resistance.
