    DEAR AMERICA
    ********************

    Thick lips came by ship
    Introducing...
    Black folk

    African American people
    Jazz...
    Hip hop, and funk

    Dissatisfied with war
    Sacrificed...
    Though not forgotten

    Snakes who villianize
    Scapegoats...
    Got swinging bodies rotting

    Catch a ***** by the toe
    Corrupt...
    Then let 'em go

    Divide and conquer ruins
    System...
    Undertow

    MLK, El-Hajj Malik-
    Murder...
    In God we trust

    Old Rosa Parks' defense
    Rights...
    Laws getting off that bus

    Fabricated formal lies
    Nations...
    Now standing up

    Your world isn't changing
    Time...
    Just running out ~
