Patriotic fables shout “Don’t turn the tables!”

Here’s a mystery of history: To the American revolutionary, a tax on tea was “tyranny,” but the cruelty of slavery wasn’t.

Patriotic fables
Don’t want anyone
To turn the tables
So facts can be found.

A slave
Who said,
“Don’t tread
On me,”
Could be
Tortured till dead.

If you would like a read that will move the tables to make room for more people check out my book, Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
