607, poet

I am the ignoramus coroner, target-market cornerer

Hippie baby parent's mentality — no formula

Giving you a dose of reality 'cause I'm more than a

Race, color, creed, other, citizen or foreigner

 

I, too, was happy when Barack's time came

Not just because he's black — he represents change

While others text each other and celebrate; I'll be workin'

To help his presidency serve a more meaningful purpose

 

Some people say, ‘we made it!' — talking like it's the end

But I live in a state that our president didn't win

So I give to the state, they need me to chip in

And show them what they did to us, we won't do to them

 

If you voted but don't pay attention to anything else

You missed the whole point; we don't need that kind of help

So learn from the people who brag throughout history

Many wars were lost celebrating small victories

 

I love you. I am you. But we haven't won yet.
