Don’t be a sorry nut
Frankly, you do not
Fully know who you are
‘Cause you’re constantly at war
With yourself and your kin
Please come out clean
Quit fooling yourself
I know that you ain’t deaf
Go deep in the sea of your ancestry
You’ll know more about your body
Your color, your nose and your hair
Stop being fooled by the nature
Of things. Know who you are
And stop this nocuously witless war.
