a Day 1 story.

I been pulled over by cops
mostly black and white
N0. mostly white.

cops are symptoms
white vs. colors, symptoms
black shootings are symptoms

the Truth is
Columbus was out to enrich
his personal fortune.

Lincoln didn’t give a damn
about a bunch of slaves.

“Keep ’em! Don’t keep ’em!”
“Just maintain the Union.”

Those obstinate Southerners.
On December 20th, 1860,
they leave the Union.

The cotton is planted, grown
and picked by black slaves,
processed up North,

shipped to European markets
that account for 80%
of all U.S.exports.

Here it comes again.

The cotton is planted, grown
and picked by black slaves,
processed up North,

shipped to European markets
that account for 80%
of all U.S.exports.

It’s simply business.
You want more profit,
produce more business.

You want more business,
borrow more money,
buy more slaves.

It’s like buying chickens.
You put them to work
laying more eggs
to increase the
capital flow.

Chickens eggs slaves
kind of the same
to profiteers.

We say cops are a symptom.
“Of what?”, you ask.
Of the fantasy,

full of form and color
feeling real enough
to call it life,
