"Goliath cutting david's throat"
^not a full line but just a crazy phrase right here.
"so i plotted my escape, i saw the thin line between love and hate and fast from the hog on the plate. i suffered brutal pain, from whips and chains, punishments that were sent to wash the brain"
very simple yet vivid way of describing the slave trade. "fast from the hog on the plate" could mean he didnt eat pork or that he didnt fall for the lies of the enemy.
