    A people's weight is tempting FATE
    Evident by "shucks WE late"
    Mother and Father
    Brother to brother
    Lover to lover

    Over and over...

    Other's numbers measure great
    Whitey's ship can navigate
    Mother and Father
    Brother to brother
    Lover to lover

    Over and over...

    Lax and slipshod out the gate

    Can't relate our time can wait

    Brother kills brother

    Screwing us over

    Sister to sister

    Fatherless

    Children

    Making it

    HARDER

    Over

    and...

    Over ~

    Now that all the years have gone by, it appears that we are the reason for our own half stepping, when we weren't allowed to even contemplate the race for years. Keep speaking out loud, 1poet.
