Her ameriKKKa

She's never been in the
gravy. She's never been in the
jelly. Strung out on drugs while
still in Mom's belly

Seems as though she was
born in a jam. And things
have gotten evem worse. Damn

At age nine she witnessed her
first murder. She's been surviving
forty eight years. She has shed millions of tears. No relief in sight

Sex work, boosting, homeless and raped. Kicked out of the shelter
living on the streets. Smelling
bad seldom enough to eat

In the self proclaimed
wealthiest country on earth.
She feels she has no value or
worth. This is her ameriKKKa
