    Doctor Martin Luther king (HAPPY BIRTHDAY)

    For freedom we prevailed ignored like nailed boards
    We couldn’t move or groove, our pure self esteem lowered
    At that time in America stood the character of misled beasts
    But Martin Luther King spread feasts on tables of peace
    We lived to a sad theme but Martin Luther King had a dream
    That all men should be free his speech reached many his voice screamed
    In freedom tone “We Shall overcome” the chains of racism
    The discrimination and intimidation a plain disgrace of wisdom
    Martin Luther king faced the realism of it all now folks gazed
    As he spoke and amazed, the cries for freedom lefted America dazed
    His speeches shattered discrimination and scattered intergration
    Through schools and made true fools out of the wrong a demonstration
    At a Montgomery bus boycott must’ve annoyed a lot of folks
    America had poor vision to ignore decisions made by Rosa Parks it awoke
    The civil Rights movement in 1955 it was a success started the SCLC
    Yes he dwell free as the first president of this organization the best to ever see
    1/15/29 Born in Atlanta adorn like Santa bringing gifts of freedom to minorities
    Priorities in America, the March on Washington affected the public to majorities
    Civil rights was no longer a rejected subject by governmental authorities
    “I Have a Dream” speech became the greatest story and oratory since
    Gettysburg Address, America no doubt thirsts for outbursts of a convinced
    Fatality dang you can’t fense reality King was tired of sunken silence
    And drunken violence which condemned the constitutuion time to
    Find a cure something we can believe in divine and pure King was a true
    Leader and may I say MARTIN LUTHER KING HAPPY BIRTHDAY
    We’ll always remember you as years and years pass FREE ATLAST
    FREE ATLAST THANK GOD ALMIGHTY FREE ATLAST
