Don’t Be A Sorry Nut

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.
