Caged Bird

Only if all my brothers where like Luke Cage I wouldn't have to see them all on the front page. At least not for robbing the corner liquor store, and when he tries to run away police catch him going through the back door. It's 2017 why are we still doing this. All the racist things I've heard have been proven. Probably would have survived that liquor store robbery if he was like cage. Instead of being a bird trapped in a cage. Cause see it's an on going cycle, that kind of has me going psycho. It's why I smoke so much to numb my self I get from the cycle. Just like the way her hips turn I'm living in a downward spiral. I know it's almost May, but I feel like it should be black history month everyday. So we can remind ourselves to not repeat the cycle. The ones before us tried so hard to break. Everyone from MLK to MJ. Whether your moon walking or space jamming the color of our skin just seems to be a magnet to that canon. Now if every brother was like Luke Cage we wouldn't be that lil old bird trapped in the cage.
