Believe it ignore it Acknowledge it or not Whether you can see Or determine it Cool with it like it Identify it or not You don’t get to tell us Who & what we are Who to love or who to hate You are not who you Purport to be You are not above laws Of nature and the universe You are not God We done had enough Of your oppression and mass-produced poverty We trudge forward without Bosses racists patriarchs Capitalists imperialists Or settler colonizers Liberation under construction A dignified existence Built upon destruction . . .
My brown face provokes hostile distaste. My brown face Is an American disgrace. My brown face Does not belong In this capitalist rat race Says the blue uniform, Corrupt with power, Conducting his Wild goose chase. For all I know, My brown face Is the reason Wars are waged. My brown face Was always destined To be caged. . . .
