It's All A Game

by Carlton L. Scott

Black people we need to be careful of who we trust
We allow outsiders to come in our communities and dwell among us
We need to examine each others actions not with words but deeds
To see if they affect us in a positive way
We have gotten to the point where we no longer care
Anybody who says they are for us we welcome them in
We need to look at our leaders with a fine-toothed comb
Not at their credentials and smooth words alone
Examine the agenda they claim to have for us
Then from that point on they should earn our vote
Black people we need to wake up and get real
Democrats and Republicans been making us promises for years
Yet our children are dying in the streets
Our goverment rather go save other countries instead
We keep trying to fit in a system where no one cares
A whole lot of pocket lining and words that are vain
Nobody understands us or feel our pain
We got to start loving each other and stop seeking fame
Stop pointing the finger at each other and playing the status game
Instead let's regroup for our own good
In a constructive way and bring about a change
