I never served
I won’t lie
I’ll man up
with hands up
don’t shoot
I won’t die
on bended knee
or waved fist
an outcast
we’ll outlast
your war of nerves

“We already have two strikes against us already…so you might as well not kick yourself out of the game. In football, you can’t kick them out. You need those players. In baseball, they don’t need us…Baseball is a white man’s sport.”

never was a caged bird
never could be free
never was a blackbird
swinging in the Southern breeze

Charm City paramour
Mondawmin matador
won’t never hear a black word
from me
