    Transformed N reborn to be the in word.
    Used N abused by those confused,

    Amused that the fact of black on black has risen year after year,
    Trapped in a world which is a prison, where mothers shed tear after tear.

    I ask is "Free at last, Free at last" a thing of the past,
    Spoken to last forever but truly how long did it last.

    Not that long, a fall back from right ta wrong,
    Once against the other man so strong,

    Now with each other man it seems to be on.
    A nation of broken dreams,

    It seems, that the only "by any means" we seem to understand
    is when it comes to clockin' greens to compete with the next man.

    Yes, money makes the world go 'round, but in time it's bound to stop,
    The question is, without love, will we fly to the heavens above or will we drop?

    How low can we go, for hell is here.

    The end surely near, message to the black man but we cannot react man,
    Our ears covered so we cannot hear, That word, the "N' word,

    Do we deserve the wreckage to our nerves,
    The constant ringing it's bringing each time that it's heard.

    To get away I call you my brotha, you call me your *****,
    I apologize, I figured your vocabulary was bigger.

    Define ignorance please,
    I-G no meaning,
    NOR neither or, ignore the word, I do,
    ANCE, the final four in repentance.

    What we all need in order for an evolution,
    360 degrees to get back to the revolution.

    Back to Black, a Man I am,
    Created from clean earthly mud,

    The blood you bleed,
    The brother you need,
    A blessing to our mothers,
    The intended planted seed.

    No more need to worry, the end of derogatory remarks,
    A fresh start, now let's rewrite this story,
    To the beginning again, we are Kings,

    Our Queens protected from rape,
    Our bodies draped in wealth,
    No need for help from the outside because now we help ourselves.

    Our problems extinct, in the east wind they are blown,
    No need for affirmative action, we can get there on our own.

    No thank you! No impurity to our heritage,
    For unity will expose ya,
    We now have closure,
    Your given name is how everybody knows ya.
    The "N" word has come to the end word,

    Truth now has a chance to soar,
    No raven needed, but quote the Black man

    "The "N" word is nevermore".

    No matter how it's pronounced, spelled, or "flavored" the "N" word means but one thing. Such strength and eloquence in your words.

    When you use a word to refer to another word you are not getting rid of the word you are supporting the word. To get rid of the word you have to get rid of the SYSTEM that produces what the word describes. Once you do that, no one will even want to use the word.
