Poem- The priestly place of Haitians

Poem- The priestly place of Haitians

While politicians’ party
And poor men are penalized
In penitentiaries
Political parties keep the people apart and poor with promises
Prejudice Police Pretend as if Principles of justice were put into their policies
Pastors preach about the times to be perilous
Not a penny in my pocket
But Poetry presents a picture of possibility for the present
Presiding over the prosecution of the sugar cane planter’s
Parting the plantations
Finally planting Haitians in their priestly place after all these years
With a spectacular presentation
Of plums and Pine apples, peaches and pears
