we stand for something

that’s necessary all the time

considered absurd by some

 

but in every aspect is sublime

the ultimate quintessential

protector of the physical and the mental

 

yet so transcendental

that it’s esoteric

and sometimes hysteric

 

to the neo-fascist mind

that mistakes our kind

for mere actors of child’s play

 

but be that as it may

we know that one day

the children of the cornbread

 

will stop chasing that bread

and start embracing the fact

that beautiful is black

 

and that our ancestors

worked hard in them cotton fields

picking cotton for the white man

 

tipping his hat to the Klan

while never knowing

that who’s really enslaved

 

is the master himself…

but anyway

 

what we’re trying to convey

is that justice is what we stand for

so we kneel like the brave
