It’s The Inglorious Poet
Serf on production
What made us think?
Yo, what made us think that it was good for the race
To capture fellow brothers and sisters, lock up em in chains
Boats flocking, no stopping, chopping across them waves
Been shocking in our ways, when there was profit there to gain
Made to slave with no pay and that’s logically insane
Our ancestors, obviously they’re gone and tossing in the grave
Sugar, Tobacco, harvesting Coffee, and picking cotton
Colonies sent to get the monopolies to prop up these economies
But it’s still happening today, sons are stolen from Africa
Beaten and sold, it’s leaving me cold, I just can’t handle the
Negative images, that I’m seeing here from Libya
That truth is dispiriting, just all too familiar
But now hidden from visions, mostly now living in prisons
Or with kids pocketing pittance, so the rich can profit off products they give us
It’s injust... I wanna shift it, stop this division
In my city, Colston got toppled, he gone swimming
They got rid of him
Listen
This shit's messed up for real
And now’s not the time to be hesitant, when addressing this Elephant
Nobody’s better than with or without that melanin
We all the same under this skin, but we forgetting it
Trace back to the same place, we connected but we forgetting it
All that hate and that prejudice, passed down by menaces
Who used people for their benefits, shit’s dark like December kid
And I can’t make sense of it, hard to grasp like speech impediments
No defending it, don’t get Terry with this systemic shit
You’ve been brainwashed to think, programmed to believe
Honestly we brothers and sisters no matter the creed
I never want to see another hue-man hang from a tree
I never wanna see another hue-man shout “I can’t breathe”
At hands of police or any blatant racist that displays this
Kind of hatred and acts on that madness belief
That any race supreme, make me want to shatter that screen
Of my Apple, no Adam and Eve, but man dismantle that Tree
So we can be
So we can be free from all the evil
That's surrounded us since the beginning of time
This shit’s deep
What made us think that we could do that?
What made us think that we still can?
Listen
It’s crazy to me because I can’t believe this shit still goes on today
And I feel like most of us are hypocrites
Because I know we don’t openly support it
But conveniently we'll ignore it
Poor kids in the sweatshops and out in the mines of Congo
With no masks as they grab that cobalt
But still we go and buy those brands
Electric cars and smartphones
It’s dark yo
