burnt hot dogs on a dry bun…

burnt hodogs on a dry bun

the brown bag prophet
said
the 4th of july
ain’t nothing
special
down here
cuz’
most days
there’s some kind
of
fireworks going off
a black church
lighting up the night sky
soul of freedom
dying right before
your eyes
and yet
the cause
of death
is ignored
while
flashes of light
reflect
not
a cause
for celebration
but
a signal fire
from
black clad street soldiers
police
that another
child
has been taken
from
this slave ship environment
and
offered up
as a sacrifice
to
a paranoid society
so
go ahead
wave whatever banner
you choose
but
in the end
we all know
who will
lose
