Black Sour

 

Edgar Allen Poe and Hughes
I dare you to spend a day in my shoes
I dare you to sing along to my blues
I dare all you white people to get a clue
Think gays have it bad, try being black
Women complaining about pay, we’re used to that
Speaking truth I have no intention of taking back
Trying my best not to be a statistic
White people like, “You can try but let’s be realistic”
And you wonder why I’m so pessimistic
Listening to politics tell lies
Wondering if the Lord hears the cries
Of all my single mothers flipping burgers and frying fries
God bless all my brothers and sisters
God bless all my kings and queens from another mister
