    Mammy And The Master


    Mama said black kids can’t be president; I say I am smart; I can be what ever I wanna be; Mama says school is for the white chillum ;I can read a book. I don’t care what mama says; God said I am a man. Mama just scared of the hooded mask. Why the white kids don’t care About a book, I want to read; What don’t bug them white kids It sure don’t bug me; Mama says black boys are slaves; God said I am free; There an’t no justice; Mama say boy get behind that Tree; and don’t make a sound. God said I was a free man. When I grow up; I’m going to Change all the rules. God said I was a free man.



    My old mammy work hard in the field; The old master makes my mammy work like a donkey without water are shade; Lord don’t understand the curse; Why my mammy love the slave master; And his kids, and don’t care about me; They call it survival well; be right now I want to be dead. Said my daddy was a white man. My skin is still black; don’t get any of the benefits;
    Still live among the shacks. Mama say boy obey the master rules; I Look up at my mama; and said my master is God. If ever I cursed my black old mother; and wished she were dead.


    She said Sammy boy the mouth is going hang you from a tree; Mammy didn’t make much since, cause a slave is already dead; One of these darn nights I am going to run away from here, mammy always crying
    Lord comes by here, how the lord c come by here, and the master is her Lord, Going to pack my rags, going to head to the other side.
    Mama always-crying Sammy boy stay here, they going to lynch you from the trees, how can they lynch me from the trees?
    When my daddy is a white man, I am part of him. Slave master wife don’t have a clue, If my daddy don’t let My mammy free, I going to tell the whole world, that my daddy’s the slave master, who crack the whip, when my mammy don’t go to the shed.
    I was just a slave baby I then became the baby maker for my white daddies plantation my daddy died in a big red house my mama died in the fields. I wonder were I'm going to die,
    I guess just like my ma’

    the mind set which we live, now as then, but a conservative stage, the way we think, the way we live.
