Trump’s victory may of been a surprise to you

But not to me

Sorry to wake up some white liberals from their pure white fantasy

But I’m a black man living in a system of white supremacy

So, this suffering maybe new to you

But not to me

Having your rights violated

Watching young black men on TV get annihilated

Yet, your reaction is the same as if you’re watching a TV show that’s now outdated

There is none

So, don’t expect me to cry for your rights

When you start to lose some

Either we standup, unite and fight, starting this very night

For everyone suffering oppression and a tragic plight

Or we all are going to start to lose some of our human rights!
