    Politicians send troops
    To overseas commitments
    Wondering
    Are our soldiers
    Really fighting
    For any real reason

    Political status
    Don't mean **** anymore
    Listen
    Can you hear
    The masses of silence
    Screaming

    Now ask yourself
    Who hurt who
    Who shot who
    Malcolm, Martin, even Kennedy
    But who's to blame
    For these trifs

    Governmental conspiracies
    Like experiences at Tuskegee
    Robbing minorities of health
    Eventually killing
    Spinal taps
    Causing death

    It's sad no one wants to listen
    When Cries
    of multitudes
    Falling on def ears
    Hearing troubles souls
    Screaming

    Lasting more then 6 month
    More like 40 years
    Their cries have been ignored
    How soon we forget
    Horrors of past events
    1932 to 72

    Being told
    This is a treatment
    Syphilis was taking its cores
    Lying to patients
    Who believed
    Governmental schemes

    Turned into Lab rats
    Injecting needles for spinal taps
    Lumbar punctures as they call it
    Extracting fluids from vertebrae's
    Willingly they took risks
    Not knowing that lies over shadow truth

    Headaches
    Damaged spinal nerves
    The out come Death
    How many have died
    400 ill patients
    Reduced to a few by 72

    Yet they say
    Science
    Had to take its
    Course
    Just like myths
    I have dream

    MLK sent to his grave
    Never being able
    To see his dream
    Come true
    Sadly I watch
    How dreams dissipate

    For every step forward, it does seem like we step back several. What would Martin say of this? Speak the truth so that all will hear.

    The that thing about speaking truths is that no one wants to listen to them. They rather stay bling to the fact and pretend they don't exist. My question is who is next? Is it you, maybe me, or our children. america wake up, wake the F#$& up.
