    They say this the land of the free
    and the home of the brave
    but we live by a system
    where people are socially and politically enslaved
    where the only people who get the blame for
    drugs is the users and the dealers
    but it be somebody standin' by and watchin'
    while they ship it in to kill us
    America more like the home of corruption and hate
    you cant control ya life if they controllin' ya fate
    so much scandal goin' on from state to state
    got more politicians goin' to jail than my ni66as
    ....wait
    This suppose to be the country that everybody copies
    but was one of the last to end slavery
    If Im lyin' somebody stop me
    We need to stop walkin' round with our heads high
    actin all cocky
    put ya best foot forward
    so it'll be easy instead of rocky
    all im sayin is be attentive and listin'
    you gotta know whats goin' on
    if you gon' change things fa the people up in it...

    Can't live like an ostrich with it's head in the sand, so many wrongs that are made to seem right. Keep flowing with truth poet.

    We need more than a change, we need an entire sweep....
    speak of "land of the free" ...the only thing that's free, is a prison cell, engraved with our name in gold.
    nice and tight piece poet
