Picture black folks coming.. chained disembark a ship.. sex abuse any ruse was said.. lacked respect excuse for usury by lips.. which say hooray! as hatred makes his bread..
Woeful times unearned yet burned for reasons never known.. cannot speak in truth of any lies bigots have shown.. Took a cause of freedom found men understood to sing.. songs written without hate.. our rights to show the king.. first time is every time our species as it grows.. sometimes lets honor be bought against what species knows.. problems from the past a big old train comes down the track.. Leader brave met the biggest threat and sent it back.. admits 7 out of ten have hunger.. worries more.. knows cannot feed them while getting rich and waging war.. war has not a winner.. life with spirit we can win.. good will come to better.. even with the darkest skin..
Now I hold on to what I know is true.. not a thing on earth can take that from me or you.. take old redundant ways mark them on a shelf.. no reason in confusion.. I will not betray myself..
Opinion for this time.. I remember the demonstrations when the last administration took office.. I remember them again after the horrors of 9-11.. I remember first reaction blown into a war.. a war that leaves more questions than most.. a war that may end when our troops come back from Afghanistan..
Mr. Obama has had the job of leading when there is an obvious breach between what is and what we are asked to believe..
Kudos and thanks for remembering a poor man feels as a rich man feels.. many times feels more.. for he has no games to play..
