    X marks the spot, where my first house was lost.
    X marks the spot ,they hung blacks from trees.
    X marks the spot, where they jail all the thieves.
    X-marks the spot, where rodney king was whipped.
    X-marks the spot, where Negro slaves were shipped.
    X-marks the spot, where my life began.
    X-marks the spot, where my life will end.
    X-marks the spot, where sit all those with clout.
    X-marks the spot, where Malcolm X was X`ed out.:spank:
