i have marched with many


we have shouted in the faces of the nypd foot soldiers


the hate was obvious in their eyes, or maybe it was misovahstanding


my comrades taught me the slogans about being fired up


that they could still take more became all too obvious


krosfyah was who we introduced at my last major protest


without land and real alternatives, to where will the survivours flee


the americas is where we be and this is a place of slavery


but when you carry the afrikans beyond the door of no return


unrelenting fire must itinually burn


i haven't paid too much attention to the case of brotha bell


yet, in my soul the truth of the matter i can tell


some of us will once again, despite all the precedence, take crumbs from the bums


three strikes and you're out is not only a baseball shout


nuff of my family, such as garvey, wear the badge of the deportee


if jamaica is to follow down america's trail what are the plans for the righteous ghetto youths in jail


plead guilty to possession of one spliff and pay a hundred dollars


yeah, i am wise enuff to say not guilty, but what of the criminals in white collars

Back in the day, it was more unity.
Statments was made by simple protest and boycottin, not what yuh see going on today.

Lawd I pray for no man on woman of my blood to endure such ################ery.

I fight to the end.
