    Good times
    Who’s good times?
    Wasn’t mine
    Wasn’t yours
    Who was laughing
    Who was paying
    To see me
    play the buffoon
    maybe I am wrong
    but good times
    might have been the
    feel good drug
    to ease the guilt
    of inequality
    while camouflaging the reality
    of a society where we were
    not meant to be

    I must admit
    I laughed
    But I grew
    Weary of seeing
    Our daddy James
    Unable to be the man he was meant to be
    And so did he

    So they killed him off
    Just like in society
    A white washed projected mirror of society
    Is what it was meant to be

    Years later we got BET
    So we can control
    The projections we see
    but
    Oh I forgot
    We done sold dat back
    So stay tuned for more gooood tymes

    yeah, i liked this too...
    and at least thelma made it
    but only because she married a pro football player, right
    and why did he end up in the projects
    with them, he made enough for the
    other side of the tracks, right?
    makes me go hmm.
    gread read!
