    In the beginning...

    East fled the south for a northerner's
    Greener pasture view of survival
    Praying no doubt Lord have mercy
    We can do without the lynching
    But the west never stopped
    A-meri-KKK-a
    Is the devil's outhouse kitchen
    Where business as usual
    In the peoples' court
    Has no remorse
    Discriminating
    God's children
    So chilling ~
    A fact of life
    Where east meets west
    With Ill effects marching millions
    Facing Black on Black in denial
    No self respect going tribal
    As my compass points true north

    Which way do we go, when we keep searching for freedom only to find another chain link? Flow on brotha.
