    Dedicated to the Kings and Queens the world never knew
    (Through no fault of their own)...


    Painful premonitions prophesized
    the destiny of once spiritual beings
    Lynch letters laced with clues
    Modern day Black Folk's blues
    Enslaved by the machine
    Material things
    Ends versus means
    Misguided dreams
    With clipped wings
    the caged bird
    wishes to sing
    unable to break free
    things seem routine
    Hot shot from the needle
    meant to muffle
    internal paternalistic screams
    Into a painful existence a life she brings
    Narcotics clog the bloodstream
    The inheritance of the feign
    No lifeline onto which to cling
    Sadly so...its black babies for whom
    the final bell rings
