Picnics in the park,
gazing at stars after dark;
the summer of love.

land of the greed,
home of the hate.
What set you claim?
Church or State?
Where they dehumanized black lives
Where the confederates lost the war and still let their flags fly
You know the place where black life was hung
Where Freedom never rung
Where Equal Rights and Justice never come
Where a Democratic Society supposedly begun
I’m from where the beef is inevitable
Hatred in abundance, you know the place well
Where the right wing extremists and the bigots dwell
Where White is the new nigger; go figure
I’m from where they don’t want you to know the true definition of nigger
Where they removed “anyone who exhibits ignorant behavior” as the definition of nigger
I’m from where they rewrote the dictionary to state any member of a dark-skinned race is a nigger
Where they were offended cause the President said nigger
Where they took no offense in calling the President nigger
Where the people are at odds again
At each other’s throats for the color of ones skin
At each other’s throats cause a him loves a him
Where the justice system is the flakiest
And niggers been praying to God so long they Atheists
I’m from where the good Christians gathered,
to see Black Life hanging from a tree
I’m from where they kidnapped and sold people that look like me
I’m from where Black Lives were burned alive, hacked to death, molested for all to see
I’m from where they hash tag #BlackLivesMatter and argue all day
Who’s the real terrorist the Crooked Cops, the Government, or the KKK?
From Willie Lynch to Jim Crow they whitewashed America
From slavery to the drug trade, illegal business controls America
The land of opportunity, home of the statue of liberty
The place where immigrants migrated in search of equal rights and justice for all, religious freedom, and liberty
The beautiful with an ugly history

How does one champion faith yet embrace blasphemous acts?
How does one champion religious freedom yet embrace sacreligous acts?
Why do they want to rebuild Sodom and Gomorrah?
Why do they want to destroy the Bible, the Qur’an, and the Torah?
Why do they not listen,
when wisdom cries out to the streets?
Why do they not listen,
when innocent blood is poured out in the streets?
Why did they make so much noise about the confederate flag in the last few weeks?
Why did they silently raise rainbow flags in the last few weeks?
How does one hear the cries for prop 8…
yet fail to listen to the cries about the incarceration rates?
How does one champion for the right to fornicate…
yet fail to preserve and restore a pure mind state?
“Why do they glorify the pagans and the derelicts?”
“Why do they mystify the vegans and the heretics?”
I keep my mind’s eye on the prophets.
I see they turn a blind eye for the profits.
I cummune with the ancient spirits;
don’t get it confused, these aint just lyrics.
You were told to fast and pray to the east,
yet you couldn’t restrain and fell prey to the beast.
The Nation of Incarceration,
Home of the modern day concentration camps;
to say the least.
The Nation of Fornication,
Home of the abomination fans; to say the least.
“How does one lead the new world order; yet fail to follow divine order?”
“How does one propose law and order; yet assail sacred order?”
Why the powers that be want the free society to accept sodomy?
Why the prison system is quietly a monopoly for the secret societies?
Why do they oppose Ancient African Chastity?
Yet they televise misogyny.
Why do they impose census on your mother tongue and nativity?
Yet they depopulate societies.
Why do they excerise eugenics and teach you to despise knowledge of self?
How do you neglect the vast disproportions of wealth?
How does contraceptives and abortions promote good health?
How is it a sign of progress for one to cross dress?
How is civil rights likened to same sex?
How did we make it this far just to digress?
I wonder why I’m condemned as a heretic…
I wonder why I can’t be led astray by the government or religious sects…
I wonder why they desecrate the ancient beliefs…
I wonder why the only thing they do religiously is brush their teeth…
