Caged Bird  By S. Dot James

The government had a plan

In the late 80s 

To remove the alpha

From his babies,

And it worked like a charm,
 

The mannerisms were gone,

Knowledge was locked away 

And the key to lessons were covered in blood,

I can't respect a crooked judge

Nor a system created to break a foundation of love, lives,

As they hope and pray for a demise,

The demise of this God like gene,

That goes back to Kemet if you know what it means,

To be one with the sun, moon, and everything in between,  

We will rise again

Just like we always do,

Despite all the pain that they put us through,

I used to be a caged bird.
