    “Turtleneck”

    I wear turtleneck sweaters to hide the rope
    Marks around my neck and when I sit back and reflect I come
    To the conclusion I’ still a slave
    Took the two branches that held my hands together
    For try in’ to be free’
    Sat on the back porch
    Started knitting’ my camouflage
    RED
    WHITE
    AND BLUE
    Sweater that hides the
    Rope marks around my neck
    Born in 1393 99 years before Columbus so called found
    Amerika
    Sat on
    “ Plymouth Rock”
    Walked around freely following the big dipper and road on underground rail ways and I thought I was free then they shackled me up one mo’
    Ga’in
    I wear turtleneck sweaters to hide the rope
    Marks around my neck and when I sit back and reflect I come
    To the conclusion I’ still a slave
    I wear turtle neck sweaters to hide the tighten’
    Rope marks around
    My neck
    Sitting’ on the back porch in my rocking chair knitting my camouflage
    RED
    WHITE
    AND
    BLUE
    Had me picking cotton and slanging
    Cane
    Bow' in yes ma'am and No ma'am
    Stepping and fetching
    I wear turtleneck sweaters to hide the rope
    Marks around my neck and when I sit back and reflect I come
    To the conclusion I’ still a slave
    I grew in the emancipation and proclamation
    Honest Abe’ free ‘n’
    Me but I am still wearing turtle neck sweaters to
    Hide the rope marks around my neck cause I am
    Still a slave
    The present is 199 years later and my
    Unborn seed died in the womb with the umbilical cord around his neck cause he knew he was a slave two
    I can feel the Noose getting tighter and tighter it makes we wanna jump….
