Skin Gamezz (Po-Po Bluezz)

by Rodger L. Hilliard

I be the PO-PO, the Five-O
but you can call me...Bro'
yo' ass in a fix...
I be the one you oughta know

That's right...I'm that
"Officer of the...Got Dayum Law"
I been on them same streets...
them same corners
and seen the same saw

Just 'cause I
dress blue
don't mean
I'm no better than you
when I walk down street or
into a store
I get that same do

Minus a uniform,
a badge and a gun
I'm that "usual suspect"
them same fingers
pointed at me...
as if...I was the one

So don't expect me
to pretend I don't see
or just turn my back
'cause the skin I'm in...
is beautiful black

I can't just
pretend I don't see...
just look away
or turn my back
Because the skin I'm in...
