40 acres and a mule

That's what they promised me

You too

my brothers

my sisters

it's true

But it's all The Blues

 

I ain't lying

and I ain't buying

promises they're trying

Promises of More

More dope

More money

More milk

More honey

More! is definetely cool

but I'm still waiting on the mule

Restitution Blues

 

Even from the mark

Get set

Go

Start of time

Some cave baby crying

dying

can't sleep

Didn't get nearly

enough to eat

Her cave daddy was out clubbed

Had her portion of grub

taken away to pay

her portion of cave

Just the way it was

Still is

Rock Bottom Blues

 

Later the Moses purposed

all the land his

that's what God gives

when man and crew

can take

from the Hittite

take

from the Moabite

take

from the Afra-kin

take

from the Mexi-kin

take

from all those

other colored skins

 

Yes, that's what God gives

 

The god dammned Semite

who thought

his father's land his

should have mutilated children

or

just stopped having kids

 

Should have been more Able

paid proper dues

'cuz the Lord

it is written

plays Biblical Blues

 

Ramses

Xerses

each had a day

The Greeks

Alexander

to the strongest make way

for the Romans

the Huns

stopped by an omen

the Gatekeeper waits

anticpates

Amen

 

Charlemagne reined

America gained

Napolenon waned

Europe discovered war

and then

Europe discovered war

all over again

And everything old is new

As noted in

Historical Blues

 

Civilizations do not rise or age

'cuz the same damned things writtten

on the samed damned page

 

While those of evil intent

lie

cheat

bamboozle

invent

Misconstrue truth

without regard or regret

Refuse to attest

what the rest of us see

Claim what is cannot possibly be

And swear they know justice

better than we

 

But I know 'cuz

I'm living Blues legacy

 

It's not just happy none

on the 10 o'clock news

It's here

It's now

It's Clear and Present Blues

 

From earth we come

to earth return

everyday a hustle

everyday a burn

everyday another prayer is prayed

"Lord make me the player

not the one being played"

 

Rich daddy, hot mama

easy touch, hard case

shining examples of each shining race

all turn their faces

when facing the Truth

 

And the Truth Is

You Die

 

And you'lll die

wanting stuff

If your club

isn't big enough

You die singing

The Blues
