Offended

Posted: August 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

I am offended by you!
by what you said
by what you didn’t say
by what you did
by what you didn’t do

You ruined my day
when you looked that way
I heard you sigh
Saw something in your eye
I. Know. What. You’re. Thinking!

Is this what our future will be?
I don’t get you, & you hate me
Fighting like we have rabies
in a state of being perpetual babies
Staying behind our protective fence
We’ve let go of our common sense

Each of my opinions you don’t share
Makes you want to send me
to the electric chair
Yet about all humanity
you pretend to care

A different belief isn’t spewing hate
A dialog would help us communicate
Share ideas, understand
Stop your pronouncements
Gestures so grand

When did we decide that we
can never be offended?

Black Lives Matter

Posted: August 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

Black lives matter because we’re under attack
And we make things worse if we try to fight back
Black lives matter because we’re the ones dying
It’s our mothers and kids left behind crying

Even good white folks only say black lives matter
When they see the news, more black blood spattered
They try to relate to me as my life was like theirs
But they’ve never been followed thru stores, felt hard Police stares

Selling some cigarettes? Don’t get killed
Better use that turn signal! Don’t get killed
Best do exactly what PoPo says, Don’t get killed
Don’t run mother fucker, you gonna get killed!

Some people ask ‘why isn’t it All Lives Matter?’
If you don’t see the difference you’re one mad hatter
We’re the ones who gotta watch what we do
Where we’re going, and at what time of night
When’s the last time the cops killed a Caucasian for not driving right?

I know you don’t wanna think bad of the USA
Don’t wanna think people in power still act that way
But now you see it in the papers every damn day
Cops just arrested one black male…
they don’t know how he died in jail

Black lives matter because we’re under attack
An we make things worse if we try to fight back
Black lives matter because we’re the ones dying
And it’s our mothers and kids left behind crying
Black lives matter; it’s not just a saying
Everybody’s got to be equal, or we’re all just playin
