    the land of hypocrisies
    the home of the slaves
    the era of terror before 911
    when Columbus
    "dis' covered (Native) amerikkka"
    ask all the indigenous people
    and the disease placed in blankets
    when given to them as gifts
    ask all the Tuskegee spirits
    that were innoculated with
    syphillis
    ask the South African black folks
    how Jim Crow felt...?you did know that
    apartied's father was named Jim Crow,
    he resided in the US of A
    the land of hypocrises
    the home of the slaves
    the era of terror before 911
    how about 1712 Virginia
    when the twin towers were
    auction blocks and Africans
    stood on the roofs praying to God
    and devil minded people grew deaf
    and sold all of them 'til not
    one was left
    and at that time/SAm pronounced
    this is the "Land Of The Free"
    ...............................................
    as yokes and shackles and chains
    chimed in the wind/
    right off Virginian shores
    in this melting pot freedom is relative
    not a relative that would
    shed blood for you die for you
    if we were to fast forward the times
    and drop the template on today
    thr rules would fit
    the same in this
    land of hypocrisies
    the home of the free?
    the land of the slave
