    Prevailng wind that comes your way
    Hits with the force of a hurricane ~
    Rain on parade my everyday
    Poor folk have too much to pay

    I wouldn't want to live like you
    Reporting more no-good-news
    Excuse me... Family Feud
    Who's lootin' who?

    Profile me catastrophically
    Acting out of misery
    Still surviving slavery
    Black like me
    On White tv

    Stormy weather on the run

    A raisin in the sun...

    Don't make me your hoodlum

    Who's lootin' who?

    Black folks know that we are low man on totem pole when it comes to our concerns.

    Once more, the chickens have come home to roost.
