Reparations

Reparations, never given when promised so

Reparations, we are due but never showed

Reparations, from Africa to these shores

Reparations, not enough given so we need more

Brought here against our will

Said it was abolished but it’s still here

We are blinded by the green

That initially is supreme

To all of human beings

To live out all their dreams

But more is due, for what we went thru

Reparations, never given when promised so

Reparations, we are due but never showed

Reparations, from Africa to these shores

Reparations, not enough given so we need more

Now we are here we had to fight to vote

No protection against the powers while they walked around and gloat 

Yet hosed and dogs sicced

Playing us with all your tricks

Making an already polluted word sick

Yet voted for a black president

Reparations, never given when promised so

Reparations, we are due but never showed

Reparations, from Africa to these shores

Reparations, not enough given so we need more
