    PAIR OF PANTS
    BY
    KEE KEE

    My man is more than a just a pair of pants

    Walking around
    Undignified, doing nothing, scratching himself to mark his manhood

    Pockets burdened with the woes of the ghetto

    Pants sagging from too few opportunities wearing him down

    Walking into a blighted path that has no meaning

    Just to make five dollars and 15 cents
    Which the government taxes greedily

    My man is the man that u women wish
    Your black man could be

    My man is the man
    Not because of what’s in his pants
    But because the way he wears his pants

    Dignified because the way he holds his head high
    When society tells him he can’t be the man he was born to be
    But just a pair of pants

    Intelligent enough to know his place in the human race
    To leave a crease in the face of defeat

    Not just sitting on the street
    Scratching, undignified, doing nothing

    No that’s not my man that u see
    Just the image of the man they want him to be

    Rugged. Rundown, hole in the knee
    No starch, no dry cleaning fee

    Wrong brother you looking for
    Stereotyped the wrong Negro.

    Nothing’s gained
    Nothing’s free

    He just can’t be who you want him to be


    See my man is the man
    Not just a pair of pants.

    Thanks Kee-AA

    Very Nice..

    Pockets burdened with the woes of the ghetto

    Pants sagging from too few opportunities wearing him down

    " Intelligent enough to know his place in the human race
    To leave a crease in the face of defeat "

    Tight flow
