How Far…?

by Nia Assante

How far back do we roll amerika?

How far back do we go?

If we roll back Roe do we go

back to whips and chains?

Do we go back to chastity belts?

Honor killings and genital mutilation should seem strange!

How far is too far amerika?

Do we build you with chain gangs?

Is it HIS-story again?

How far back do we roll amerika?

Will we fill the bellies of ships

with human bellies for trade?

How far back do we row


How far back do we go?
