An old sketch of Black Rage, done in my living room. Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO.

- MLH

Lyrics:

Black rage is founded on two-thirds a person
Rapings and beatings and suffering that worsens,
Black human packages tied up with strings,
Black rage can come from all these kinds of things.
Black rage is founded on blatant denial
Squeezed economics, subsistence survival,
Deafening silence and social control.
Black rage is founded on wounds in the soul! 

When the dogs bite, when the beatings,
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember all these kinds of things and then I don’t fear so bad! 

Black rage is founded: who fed us self hatred
Lies and abuse while we waited and waited?
Spiritual treason, this grid and its cages
Black rage was founded on these kinds of things.
Black rage is founded on draining and draining,
Threatening your freedom to stop your complaining.
Poisoning your water while they say it’s raining,
Then call you mad for complaining, complaining
Old time bureaucracy drugging the youth,
Black rage is founded on blocking the truth!
Murder and crime, compromise and distortion,
Sacrifice, sacrifice, who makes this fortune?
Greed, falsely called progress,
Such human contortion,
Black rage is founded on these kinds of things 

So when the dog bites
And the ceilings
And I’m feeling mad,
I simply remember all these kinds of things and then I don’t fear so bad! 

Free enterprise, is it myth or illusion?D
Forcing you back into purposed confusion.
Black human trafficking or blood transfusion?
Black rage is founded on these kinds of things.
Victims of violence both psyche and body
Life out of context is living ungodly.
Politics, politics
Greed falsely called wealth
Black rage is founded on denying of self!
Black human packages tied and subsistence
Having to justify very existence
Try if you must but you can’t have my soul
Black rage is founded on ungodly control

So when the dog bites
And the beatings
And I’m feeling so sad
I simply remember all these kinds of things and then I don’t feel so bad!

Photos by Gerry Ellis from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in Kenya’s Tsavo East National Park. Here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. The elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

When elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. Grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. But as Dame Daphne Sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

Approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. With an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of Africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

CBC’s The Nature of Things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. You can foster an elephant with the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust online here.

I always believed that we would find our way back to each other every time. But this time it felt final. Like I would never see him again, or that when I did, it would be different - there would be a mountain between us. I knew it in my bones. This time was it. I had finally made my choice, and so had he. He let me go.
