how black people play monopoly

Today, I challenge you to write a poem that incorporates the vocabulary and imagery of a specific sport or game.

our ancestors built almost everything on the board
but mostly, we never got to buy anything
or build on properties for ourselves
basically, we were sent directly to jail
and we did not pass go
and we never got $200
and we’re trying now
to not be pieces
anymore
