    THE BALTIMORE BLAZE, or

    Burn Baby Burn: When Love runs out the lantern is gone

    By Andre Austin

    The blackman has been neglected treated as invisible with white sheets tore

    He was just a joke, a blight and an awful eye sore

    We had enough, we just can’t take police brutality anymore

    “Burn Baby Burn”

    What lead up to the events that erupted in Baltimore

    Upgrade: its now “Burn Bittchh Burn”

    Where is the love they call “amore”

    Blackman treated like he’s on the Planet of the Apes

    They fear I will take the whiteman’s grapes

    No freedom or opportunity so with the match I’ll escape

    I can’t drink no more wine

    Because you snapped my freakin Spine

    Mad-dog butchery all caught online

    You gotta get yours and I gotta get mine

    And that’s why we have no more “Agape”

    That’s just another word for no Love

    So I light it up with a Aunt Jemima’s bandanna Mask and a glove

    So u had your little bonfire and you had your little fun

    You burned down your own community what have U Won

    The evil deeds of Dracula must flee the scene with the rising sun

    Until a yellow/sun shirt Loving Mom’s come out to unmask and save their sons

    We have something to brag about; a small part that we have won

    But for the fringe I’m still in Mask

    And knee deep in my criminal task

    I’m invisible now and its all on my own terms

    No facial recognitions or a fingerprints

    You hate my existence and my super-sperm

    We are the beloved community but no Valentine cards were sent

    Freedom should be Universal you shouldn’t have to wait your turn

    Unless you want to resort to the faith & deeds of “Burn bitchh Burn”
