The Harvesters (a poem)

Shelby Steele, Michael Steele, Condi Rice, Thomas Sowell,

On and on goes this impressive roll

Of sons and daughters whose forefathers bore

With quiet dignity the chains they wore.

 

On the shoulders of giants they stand with pride

And take to the full what this land can provide.

Humble beginnings won't stop their progress.

Clarence Thomas, Ken Blackwell and others no less

Distinguished. Men and women of this stalwart band

Are the harvesters of the Promised Land.

And take to the full what this land can provide.

Humble beginnings won't stop their progress.

Clarence Thomas, Ken Blackwell and others no less

Distinguished. Men and women of this stalwart band

Are the harvesters of the Promised Land.
