Villain/elle: Shimomura Cross Over  in the Flat of the Night

Bao Phi,  in response to Roger Shimomura's  Shimomura Crossing the Delaware

 

after Dylan Thomas and Lupe Fiasco

 

Shimo’ cross over in the flat of the night

Home of the coolie, displaced Native, land of the slave

Paddle over tongues of water, Colonialist’s Delight.

 

Tie an Arab to a rocket, set the fuse alight

Enlist a Chinaman in the military, racists haze the brave

Shimo’ cross over in the flat of the night.

 

Steal Native land . . .
