    I just wanna tell ya’ll **** the revolution for one poem
    And that may be a little odd for me to say,
    But we live in this day, and this age
    Where M and O.J. can take lady justice and **** her
    Besides, the revolution was never televised for this generation,
    It was downloaded off blubster
    And I’ll tell you another thing
    I wanna go back to wearin’ bling
    And saggy pants
    Cause now it’s the in trend to rock bob Marley and dreads
    And half of these cat’s couldn’t tell me **** about Rasta-fari--ans
    One of these days It’s gonna become cliché to pump your fist and say
    Stuff like black power
    (news cast) This just in, che guevara shirts are now the style of the hour
    Get em’ while you can
    And if you purchase one in the next thirty minutes, I’ll throw in a free…Cuban colored wrist band
    Because the only movement we’ve been takin’ lately is backwards
    And prison C.E.O.’s and investors are still the largest benefactors of black on black crime
    Mid-West African’s are still subject to sex slavery and gen-o-cide
    Ya’ll black America has been neutralized by iced out jewelry and flashy cars
    And we still can’t get our kids to look up into intellectual stars
    So for this poem, I’mma cut the revolution some slack
    These days it’s some brotha’s I can’t bring home from their second tour in Iraq
    And I’m sure they’re not concerned with the latest revolutionary I’m wearing on my back
    So **** the tee-shirts, african medallions and dread locks
    Cause most of the lost souls out there ain’t at your local poetry spot
    They listen to Hip Hop, and it’s only the real they recognize
    Because when you struggle it’s kinda hard to give a ****…..
    About some REVOLUTION BEING TELEVISED.
