When did Black & Proud "WE" Become h0e and b!#ch YOU? Nubian warriors Disrespecting womanhood With full breasts And sensuous lips With swinging hips And "apple bottoms" With welcoming arms Made for rocking babies But loving reduced to F*cc yous & "maybes?" Who is this "YOU," King? Seems you've lost your mission What kind of MAN are you And by whose definition? Yes, I see you've lost your way And I'd like to help save you and sway Your destructive course But by what force and what source For the BLIND can not lead the blind So, if I am degraded and maligned How can I unwind and realign The dysfunction of US? The Black family unit Has suffered such a hard-hitting attack Who, then, me or you, can take up the slack If by example, NEITHER of us has been taught How to be the men and women that we ought? Yes, it is a sad, sticky situation Full of finger-pointing frustration Retarded by mental & emotional constipation Each side waiting for fulfilled expectation But there will be no transformation Until we BOTH with combined application Come off the plantation And answer the right and noble obligation For ourselves and the next generation.
