Season 2 has insight and good music comes with —
I believe I heard a little Beyoncé and Lamar, Kendrick.
The underscore is deep and references are thick
UNDERGROUND brandishes history and that “slave trade” shick.
I’m down with it – Season 2.
I’m trying to see what Noah ‘nem ‘gone do.
His demise split up the plantation and she lost her “golden ticket” lover.
Now she’s on another slave plantation shacking with a field brother.
Noah is in ‘fate limbo’ and Rosalee is on his heels.
She’s down to free her man; resistant blood will spill.
Talk about a woman that’s down to “ride or die…”
This series would get Harriet Tubman high.
Speaking of “getting high,” Ernestine is doing it.
A handkerchief to the nose… Ernestine isn’t new to this.
Whatever she’s inhaling in the hankie yields a mind-altering haze.
It allows Ernestine to carry on in the lows that are the life of a slave.
America’s History is rough.
However, last season when she was living high on the hill
She offed Pearlie Mae. She delivered ‘the kill.’
Any thrill was short lived and death is nothing at which to squawk
On his wedding day, on the courthouse steps death took John Hawkes.
Now I feel like Esther Rolle, I’m saying “damn, damn, damn!”
We needed him and his protections – human decency is on the lam.
Hot damn! This plants a big arse stick deep in the mud
And retrieving a win with Noah, looks like a distant thud.
By the end of Episode one Rosalee was in progress to free him from a scheduled hang
When they were chased and had to face an even more hungrier gang…
They wanted Noah and while Rosalee and the crew fought –
It was John Hawkes CIVIL RIGHTS assistance that invoked his death be brought.
There was a single gunshot wound to his head as he did arrive
from the doors of the county courthouse with his new bride.
Our country’s mirrored history is tough.
However, this show is back in the chamber and Thursday nights are looking up.
Going UNDERGROUND with thee. This production could use our supportive love.
