    all the whips and lashes wounds and deep gashes
    stitches, staples, and scabs from gunshots and stabs
    we barely over half, just 3/5s a man
    we tilled the land to put millions in the hand
    of Uncle Sam and Tom got his cut as well
    while slave's backs had whelps and cotton-picking fingers swelled
    we were jailed given Heaven and Hell with no choice
    no water in the well throat moist with no voice
    to say 'We mourn you' everyday
    Not only in February but, annually
    thank Martin and Malcolm for a better day
    Someone Xed our Kings
    and turned slaves into fiends
    remember the dream

    For those who feel the past doesn't matter, the past touches us in some way, each and every day. Speak on it scribe.

    Remebring The Dream
    Gets Hardr ith each Scream
    Each of Those dreams
    Gets overturns with a Steam
    A color
    A Perm
    and a Wish to be the Dream
    A Wish to Be Beyonce
    Or someone of the Music Stream
    THe Dream was my dream
    But now Our Dreams are weak
    We must dream of Money
    or our Lives will have no mean
    Living the Dream
    THe dream of Millions
    But Catching the Sparkile of One
    May change our Status Quotus
    Ressurect The Dream
