A Poem by Renee’ Drummond-Brown: "Gore"

Gore

I know ‘twas the blood.

I know ‘twas the blood.

Father,

forgive me

please.

Trouble in my way.

Like Judas I gotta

hide

sometimes, 30 pieces o’

silver shadows; real 24kt

fool’s gold;

exact same kiss of death.

I knew ‘twas the blood.

I knew ‘twas the blood

handed ov’r

by me.

Father forgive me

it was I.

Dedicated to:

BLOOD BANK…One day when I wuz lost; He GOT UP on my cross; saved me.
