i read the news today…

poem

oh boy

baby boy

brown baby boy

brown baby boy blue uniform

brown baby boy blue uniform white man

brown baby boy blue uniform white man

shooting bullets

shooting bullets leaving bloodstains

chalk outlines

sign of the times

mess with your mind

hurry before it’s 2 late

let’s fall in love

get married

have a baby

we’ll call him nate…

if it’s a boy

baby boy

oh boy

i read the news today
