    POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE
    ***********************************
    Put up or shut up
    Wherever you're at
    We're either,
    American...
    Or something we lack

    We're stuck, held up
    Real issues you duck
    Hail to the chief,
    Here's another tax cut

    Why ~ White policemen
    Shoot us... all day?
    I pay my taxes!
    Man, you kill me that way

    And why are we profiled,
    Every few miles?
    Pomp and circumstance...
    YOU keep our X-FILES-

    FASCISTS!!!

    Yeah! why?
    Is it because you love our style
    or maybe because our spirit is wild
    could it be our words and grace
    so many gifts wrapped up in one race
    but most of all I think its fear
    our rightful spot at the top is all so near!
    FEAR! Makes you hate what you don't understand!

    1poet! I love your truth! It sets the mind free!
