300 Years A Slave

by Hussein

Instead of hanging us from trees
they shoot us dead in the streets whenever they please

Or lock us up in cages
and take away our humanity  in stages

Their chains are no longer on our ankles above our feet
there in are our brains  buried deep into the grey meat

 We finally get a Black President
and their disrespect for him and us is evident

Until  last year they were trying to give him the boot
4 days ago a White guy told me it was him he wished they would shoot

They work us hard on their high tech plantations everyday
but, will not give us equal pay

The road to our real freedom they refuse to pave
as we remain-300 years A Slave!!!
