    hey

    HEY you seem
    to be confused
    we are free slaves
    held captive
    living in a society
    where poverty rains
    unemployment lingers
    and just on the HoRiZoN
    uncertanity looms...
    Let me Elaborate on this
    "STAR STRANGLED HELL
    NAWL I KAIN'T SEE"

    in F minor...tune

    when am I gone get
    my "peace of the pie" (sweet potata pleaze)
    everythang ain't
    chicken & watermelon {PLANTATION} saydreamz
    I WILL NOT

    CAN NOT

    SHALL NOT


    Buy/bye/bi into that
    while I slave a slaves
    job supporting you
    on my back

    I've neva seen picket
    fences in my hood
    picket signs protesting
    still high *** sales tax
    gas prices
    things in between
    I ain't buying into
    "AS SEEN ON ..."

    On the outsyde lookin N
    on the Nsyde looking out
    caught in the middle
    peeking round corners
    looking ova my shoulder
    making sure I don't
    slip on the color pink

    Yall didn't hear me
    I said
    making sure I don't
    get "THE PINK SLIP"
    something ain't klean
    in Amerika's buttermilk

    But az my napps' napps
    pointed out to me

    who am I to
    complain ?
    the man (they say) been good
    2 me
    tole me to shut up fo I mess it
    up
    for errybody who content
    with the scraps from massa's
    table...

    so I shake/shook my head
    and closed open my eyes
    wondering if/when a/the/our
    Revolution will be televised

    To be cont.

    Through The Eyes Of A Slave

    Thanks for sharing this with me. Not only because it paints an accurate picture of the yolk upon our ancestor's neck, but also, it causes us to ask...Hey, what ever happened to that Revolution we was talkin' bout having???

    *wondering if it will be televised*
