Truth Be Told

Your society is blinded by hatred. Our truth is not told. 50 untold stories resembling stars on a flagpole:

red, white, and blue. We were beaten by whites, bled red, leaving our vision blue.

Your ideology created to imprison the mind and break one's self.

Off our backbones is that how you made your wealth? No questions just answers,

being looked at as crooners and dancers.

Your (his)tory is kind of boring and gory.

Hanging us from trees, for you was kind of sporty.

You can't find truth in books, you lie on wax. No more whips on our backs,

because those new lashes come from tax.

The once 23 year-old from rural Alabama, is now a 70-year-old CEO or wearing

black robes banging gavels.
