    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.
