Poem by Treasure Sheilds Redmond

Isaiah 38:1 by Treasure Sheilds Redmond in 1882 the last colord rump sat here on this capitol floor. now 3 black women come to clean house; droppd from america’s lap, weand on fire, teeth cut on lynch rope. our wheat straw truth can not be denied. thus saith the lord: set thine house in order.
