Shoot

You don’t look at me the same

I don’t know why

But somehow in your eyes

I became a lame 

Though I’m still the wild beast

Impossible to tame

We’re both still in the picture

Just in different frames

Play 2K a lot 

But I’m not here for the games

Tell me was I really your target?

Or do you just have bad aim?

The New Pledge

IMG_0126

Die for America?

I won’t die for these characters

People untrue to themselves

They’re really caricatures

Kidnap my ancestors on ships

Then say they carried us

Nah, you ain’t the man, Peter Pan

Watch us fly without your fairy dust

The only reason this place is what it is

Is because of us

Tell Baltimore to calm down

No thank you, We’ve had enough

Pushed to the breaking point

Then we start breaking stuff

And somehow they’re mad at us

So if I stood in a crowd full of black faces

You know, the kinds that aren’t painted

I’d stand at attention in the room

Raise my right hand and salute

And say that I pledge allegiance to all of you…
