13/30 - 1965

Who
can turn Slavery
to presidency

3 bedroom
to
8 sleeping
8 eating
cleaning and living

inanimate to adamant

those born
and would like to live
Kings

would sacrifice
to survive

beat me
shattered

heritage mystery
professor
confused on Roots

Uproot and fight
Stand with pride

Shame on you

we
fear
not eating
sparing self
for growth
for defence
of family

every black family
has a revolutionary
or a Gangster
2 calls away

They come
guns drawn

He prays
they don't kill him
knows
what will happen
if they do

1968
black man
murdered
for participating
in his god given right
to protect his family

burning
over 40 years

hot
off the
presses

another black man shot
another cole in the
fire

something is gonna burn
like August 15th
1965

this time
they
wont
call it
uprise
