This is another poem I wrote for my dance lesson. I came across the poem after finding another fact (from a website I cannot remember) about a connection between the bible and slavery.
Please note that this poem is only written, based on fact; I’m against slavery and I have no interest in arguments for it. I only write to raise issues for why slavery is wrong.
“Do not disobey”,
“Do not mess about and play”,
These are the rules
And they are here to stay.
To make a master happy,
Is to be quick and snappy.
If you please him,
You’ll be awarded with a grin.
Do everything he’ll say;
Make sure you’ll serve and obey.
You’ll be rewarded handsomely,
If he sees that you are not lazy.
But break the rules
And you’ll be punished
For no likes fools,
Sinners and cowards.
The bible says a slave
Should treat his master with respect,
So give all you’ve got and collect,
Otherwise, you’ll receive an invitation
Which will lead you to punishment and your grave.
