Noise #294 – DUTY

“When A Stupid Man Is Doing Something That He Is Ashamed Of,
He Always Declares That This Is His Duty.”
George Bernard Shaw 1865-1956



CURFEW 10 UNTIL 5
EACH BEE BACK INTO THE HIVE

ANOTHER EVENT
SENT

SHOCK WAVES THROUGH
FOR THE NATION TO VIEW

KIDS GOING WILD
STYLED

IN NINJA GARB
READY TO ROB

AND TAKE
NOT THROUGH A TAX BREAK

BUT WITH SPIRIT OF REVENGE
MAKING AMENDS

FOR ANOTHER BLACK MAN’S DEATH
ANOTHER BREATH

LOST ON THIS EARTH
NOT WORTH

ANYTHING TO ANYONE EXCEPT
THOSE WHO WEPT

AS KINSMEN
AND WOMEN

BIRTH MOTHER FOR SURE
OVER A PREMATURE

EXIT
POLICE FEEL THAT IT WAS LEGIT

JUST DOING THE JOB
CONTROLLING THE MOB

LATINOS AND AFRICAN AMERICAN YOUTH
SOME WITH NAMES LIKE SMOOTH

STONES
CUT THROUGH TO THE BONES

AS BUSINESS GOES ON AS USUAL
STATUS QUO IMMOVABLE

FAT CATS ON THE HILL
FULFILL

THEIR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS
SQUASHING EVERYTHING IN THEIR SIGHTS

THAT GETS IN THE WAY
OF A PROFITABLE PAY DAY

NO MATTER ABOUT THE FELLA OR GAL
OUT OF THEIR LOCALE

I GOT MINE
EVERYTHING IS FINE

A PRESIDENT THAT SPEAKS OF WRONGS
CONTINUES HIS SONGS

FROM ONE EVENT TO THE NEXT
DON’T DARE QUOTE MALCOLM X

OBAMA IS A MAN OF ALL SEASONS
EVERYONE HIS REASONS

NO SPECIAL CARE FOR THEE
WHAT ABOUT ME

DON’T WORRY MR PRESIDENT
ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT

WHO CONTINUES THEIR NEGLECT
CHECKED

OUT BY POPE FRANCIS AS WELL
TIME WILL TELL

THAT CHANGES CAME
MANKIND BORE THE BLAME

NOT AT FIRST
BUT WORST

WHEN SADNESS CAME TO THEIR HOMES
TONES

THAT THEY HELD BEFORE
WILL HIT THE FLOOR

EVERYONE GETS A CHANCE
NO WARNING IN ADVANCE

TO SUFFER
AND BEG FOR A CHANGE IN THEIR SUPPER

SIT OUTSIDE OF HOSPITALS AND ONCOLOGY BUILDINGS
IT IS CHILLING

GOD ALLOWS YOU TO REAP WHAT YOU SOW
A CASH COW

CANNOT HELP YOU HERE
NOT IN THE TOP CHAIR

IF PEOPLE DO NOT WAKE UP TO WHAT IS HAPPENING
THEY WILL GO OUT SCRAMBLING

FOR MORE LIFE AND A CHANCE
TO TAKE A DIFFERENT STANCE

THE MISERY THAT IS DOWN ON THE HILL
IS REALLY A TWIN BILL

FOR THOSE WHO DID NOT GIVE JOBS
OR SOBS

FOR THOSE BELOW
WHEN YOU WERE IN THE DOUGH

OR WALK IN THEIR SHOES
INSTEAD OF GIVING THEM ABUSE

THEIR LIVES MATTER
DON’T CONTINUE TO FLATTER

YOUR OWN ESSENCE
YOUR PRESENCE

OPEN YOUR MINDS AND HEARTS
MAKE A REVERSE

TIME IS LIMITED AND MARCHES ON
MAKE CHANGES BEFORE YOU ARE WITHDRAWN TO YON

UPDATE
FOR THE DEBATE

CHARGES FOR SIX
A PART OF THE MIX

REPRESENTING A POLICE CULTURE
NO MATTER THEIR NAME OR COLOR

RUNNING A VAN THROUGH AVENUES AND STREETS
WORKING THEIR BEATS

FRED GRAY LAY ON THE METAL
BOLT FATAL

FOR HIM
NO LIMB

IN HIS CONTROL
RESTRAINTS STOLE

THAT OPPORTUNITY
FOR IMPUNITY

NOT THERE
NOT A PRAYER

WHAT DID HE THINK
ON THE BRINK

OF LOSING HIS LIFE DURING AN ACT OF CRUELTY
WHILE OTHERS THOUGHT THEY WERE DOING THEIR DUTY

WAS IT MOTHER AND DAD
TIMES WHEN HE WAS A LITTLE LAD

HOW COULD THIS BE
HE WILL NEVER BE FREE

TAKE HIM TO ANOTHER TIME OF FUN
HE CANNOT THINK OF NONE

FOR HE AND OTHERS
SISTERS AND BROTHERS

ARE CO OPTED
ADOPTED

INTO A PECKING ORDER
WITHIN THE BORDER

OF A SOCIETY
A VARIETY

OF RACES AND CREEDS
HIS IS IN THE WEEDS

COLOR IS THE MAIN QUALIFIER
OF THE OCCUPIER

OF WHAT ONE GETS OR NOT
THIS IS THE SCHOOL OF THOUGHT

RACISM UNDERPINS IT ALL
COLOR AND LANGUAGE DETERMINES THE CRAWL

OF WHERE YOU CAN GO AND WHAT YOU CAN DO
THIS IS THE GLUE
