Man's Failure

One black man’s failure
Is all our shame
Like Hip-Hop they are going to blame
Is the excuse fame
Or is it the fortune
People love to dim the lights
When they see you coming so bright
Like TI they say he’s a thug
But indeed there’s a need of correction
His guns
His toys
Are like little boys
Who play with plastic toys
It’s ok for Bush to enslave a million of innocent men
And destroy young lives in a place of strangers
In a place millions of us will never go
It’s ok to use his voice
As a silencer
On a intent to kill
See TI’s no thug
People who don’t know the life of blackness
People will never go
Or live in the places of a black creed
Indeed it’s no excuse to use his fame
Because minus the fame
How many more innocent men are behind steel bars
See TI is proclaimed to be the King of the South
There’s no difference
From the leader of our own nation
Fighting a war
From centuries before
See TI has lived in the ghetto
Been to the ghetto
And returned to the ghetto
And helped re-erect
What Bush destroyed
The poor little black America
Alone and forgotten
Bush has never been there
Will never go there
His nose is turned up like cocaine
The closes he will ever get
Is going to Afrika
See man destroy man
To keep another man down
His felons
Is just another way to price
And miss judge a brother
People make laws
Because they can’t do it
And there are many reasons why
Young men are down so low
And when the light turns green
The big man is pushing his Mercedes Benz
Because he’s robbed the black man
Spending the same dirty money
So judge me by 12
Any day
Than to ever be carried by six…..
