 once upon a time


No identity 

 

We killed one in Ferguson today.

Oh what did you kill, was it a dog, cat 

No Don't be stupid we killed a black,A Man!

no stupid I said a black doesn't count.

 

Not really human you know the sort 

 Think they are part of us, but we let 

them know never, never will we the police

In Ferguson accept that we are wrong.

 

Look around you, what have we got, president-guy

In charge who's a black, should be shot

But when elections come around we'll be

rid of him, no blacks allowed in Ferguson 

 

What was his name, who? the person you shot.

Told you it wasn't a person it was a black.

Oh you didn't ask for ID no. look you don't 

get it, I said he was black, doesn't count

 

But, but what, you did identify him after, after

yeah found a wallet his name was Michael

Oh then it was a man, Jesus I keep telling you

He was a black doesn't count in Ferguson.
