    they all crooked, i always say
    in some form
    i don't care how good they seem to be
    or how much they do for the major minority
    (that's what we be, right?)
    even the founder of rainbow coalition
    made my list
    uhh-doctah, uhh-mistuh, uhh-revrin
    jesseh jACsun...
    mhmmm
    and though i have much respect for him
    they didn't kill revrin docta m. l. kang just cuz he wuz a loud
    black peaceful man...
    all the presidents (yes cartah too)
    even farrakhan in all his million marches
    got somthin bout his eyes that's crooked...
    all of 'em tryin to be in the brightest limelight
    to be heard, to be famous, to be, to be, to be the favorite
    to change minds, to change the world loudly
    to be the way they think it should be,
    to make a statement, to run things (the world),
    to divide people and make weak so that they can
    be all the stronger, to be the richest, to be leaders
    eventually leading all followers
    to hell...

    wildflower,

    sometimes you have got to be political...this side of you is out cold too. As the norm, you dropped the heat.
