    Here I am walking on the "over"ground
    "hell"road swinging low at the plymouth rock
    trying to find the tablets of Moses
    that gave the rules before the CONstitution
    pilgrim scribed program prohibiting the
    false pursuit of happiness and freedom enslaving
    us in prostitution / cotton field coated screams
    land hard breaking down dreams of harriet /
    whose got the chariot? Uncle Sams standing at roadside
    cause I'm thinking "vehicular homicide"
    bullets dipped in spermicide placed in guns
    of genocide 'cause my genes are dominent physical
    characteristics more prominent than european
    genes two sizes to small so we are placed in a
    caboose on the "Over"ground "Hell"road taken
    to the Amerikkkan melting pot to drown in "Colored" green
    juice water strained through BENJAMINS but "it's
    all about the benjamins tarbaby" thats what
    Mis Justice is singing / harmonizing a hypnotizing
    disjointed anthem also known as the requiem for
    the demise of the misguided / genetics dominent
    full lips and big hips / melanin and slow aging skin
    with a dash of rhythm is the way we livin'

    "but ain't no credit given"

    So we're fed "diversity" which is a curse word
    to me cause it
    insults me when we are pulled in this uneven fold
    let the truth be told if white folks say that they
    are the only ones that need this fixin' then they
    have to admit they have this self-administered disease called racism
    blak folks were forced to be diverse by
    riding in the back of the middle passage hearse
    that's why some of our souls are dead
    claiming blue or red but shooting black
    adding numbers to the 15 million post-attacked
    and jacked from Africa here to ameri KKK a
    so pour a little "pot liqour" on the curb

    we are riding in the caboose of a train
    on the "Over"ground "Hell"road drinking 40's and
    listening to played out trav(hell) music of Abraham
    Lincoln reciting the E(white)mancipation
    Proclamation spoken over a stolen chuck berry
    track by elvis and too many are "all shook up"
    that the quarters is crowded and hellshocked
    ****** is fightin' before death cause somebody's
    shoe got stepped on while "cotton" patching to
    the music / too many
    negros trapped in anthem lyrics and can't really
    hear it so the real message got slept on...that

    "Abe didn't free the slaves" but the lies are told
    and sold to us in a pristine double bound book
    at KKKmart in the Blue light section 8 aisles
    and Martha Stewart smiles showing us ways to decorate
    our caskets after *** kicks from billyclub toting
    police and politicians and they

    kiss our babies cause it looks good on tv
    and
    try to kill our spirit cause you can't see it
    on tv
    and if they did would they show it?

    Only in the caboose of the train
    on the "Over"ground "Hell"road.
