The plant survives with water
Grows with sunlight
And thrives with nutrients

Black Wallstreet was a blossoming tree
Burned to the ground by those in disbelief of it’s fruits
Rain was plentiful, yet not a cloud in the sky.
And the soil was set with nitrogenous hope.

Nitrogen doesn’t burn but with enough oxygen
Or forestry
Ash is all you’ll see..

The larger they are…

I like many am not one to mourn the loss of great nations
They passed long ago and I learn from them sure
However a sense righteousness activated
In those who saw this particular flame.

Plentiful distributors
Fruitful business men
Beautiful brown babies alike
ash

Redemption is not justice
Good deeds do not undo the past

All that manages to stand against them all is a resilient people
And the will to withstand.
