A new discovery. 2 across waters it poisoned, she shipped bodies from the west in the deep recesses of its darkness, killin its soul 3 forced labor backed by “the lord’s book” because in their God they trusted. The currency wore God's name as black bodies bore the brunt of building this land 4 and they became the gold standard. 5 For this envy and hate charged amerikkka to plant their seeds deeper into the night, determined to break the audacity of the remaining 3/5ths.

The first...the Bible.
