The History of The South

The anatomy of the legend is

woven in the fabric
of delusion.

Woven in the fabric of disfunction ,

of “god creation”,
the reverence of the relics,
and the battle flag.

The blood stained effects
of the lost,
the false perceptions,
the distorted memory,
and the magnification of the myth.

Theirs  is the song of magnolia and moonlight,
of romance in the denial of the sin,
the lash,
the dehumanizing terror,
which is now a heritage.

The price,
the mind accepts,
for the decimation of a culture,
the destruction of the old ways,
is carved in both folklore,
and in the collective disillusion of the vanquished.
