So can I get an Amen?
Now that straight men
Walk crooked like gay men.
When laymen get to lead
And the skilled take a back seat,
Just what do you expect?
When those who should show respect
Those who fought for these ideals
Suddenly in 2011 become speechless!
When we are only loud
In the comfort of our homes,
But become ants
When in the land of ‘giants.’
We shrink in morality
To offer others comfort for their atrocities.
We have clothed immorality
In so many garments,
We can’t even decipher
If it’s natural or synthetic,
Oh how we’ve become so pathetic!
How the biggest and the brightest
Can be lead to their doom
By the ruthless
And just sit by in silence
When we flock to the radios
As agents of deception and miscommunication
Instead of enlightenment and education.
We spew words of hate and animosity
Fostering this state of injustice and injury.
When the courts rule with selective authority
A poor man doesn’t stand a chance,
If the legal system functions by happenstance.
I’m afraid some will take justice into their own hands
What then will happen to this land?
So now can I get the AMEN?
