Poetry Corner: Black Diamonds

55 years later we reflect on the loss of four of our rarest jewels,

In an Alabama church bombing tragedy etched into history,

But I suppose nobody really cares.
Formed under pressure,

But unbeknownst of their beauty and value the ultimate sacrifice of time.
Monumental to the movement,

Flawless and priceless to the culture,

More than you think underestimated at first glare.
Taken from life and nature,

Immoral souls driven by hate,

Even today we see on tape,

As they demonstrate robbing Queens of natural given talent tragically unsublime.
