42 Days with Huck Finn 36:42


War of Northern Aggression



Digging in the reddened clay, through the dust, 
scraping with a butter knife tunneling; 
with all means necessary total robust. 
 Our pick ax singing ding a ling, a ling.
Freeing Jim with all their wits and might.
Huck and Tom fur flying, setting Jim free.

Israelites freeing the old Ishmaelite.
Right or wrong depends on the view point, you see,
no true way on slavery, with the bible as your guide. 
  
War of Northern Aggression? 
War of Black Liberation?

Right, wrong, blistered hands, couldn't let it slide.
backs grew tired, strained, they sweat and sufferth
Right, wrong, blistered hands, couldn't let it slide.
backs grew tired, strained. they oft lose breath

Plantation owners, nice as they could be;
they were blind to why slaves being set free.

War of Northern Aggression? 
War of Black Liberation?

Form based on Sir Philip Sidney 1554-1586 (Splendis Longum Valedico Nugis)
