MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY, 2004


When you fight for your rights
You get him being free some nights
Because freedom is worth the fuss
When you sit on the back of the bus

I battle for what should be
You every morning inside of me
Instead of a fantasy in a shower
I'm free, so real, and I need you power

The independence to be a wife
To pleasure the most loved man in my life
It's what I wave these words for
That we'll find freedom making love not war

No guilt then will you feel
Because two women love you still
I'd still be here and free
If society voted for polygamy

To share the rewards of one good man
Who my civil rights, my speech, he'd understand
As Martin Luther King could see
We are lost in the world if we are not free.
