Burn This Bitch Down
(Coz I don't dance to your tune no mo')

"We don't need no water let the motherfucker burn"
                            --Bloodhound Gang

I ain't marching for Trayvon,
I ain't marching for Mike,
I ain't marching for queers,
Ain't marching for dykes.

I ain't marching for no one
With some fake PhDicks--
Fuck your Jacksons and Sharptons,
Fuck your Lakers and Knicks.

I ain't marching for Cosby,
Raping rising young stars,
If it weren't for his money
He'd rot behind bars.

I ain't marching for no one,
I've heard enough jive
From the ones who make millions,
While we slave nine to five.

I ain't marching for no one,
Farrakhan, MLK,
Karl Marx or Obama,
Malcolm X, JFK.

I ain't marching for Marley,
Crosby, Stills, Nash or Young--
No, I'd rather be broke,
Stoned or drunk.

I don't need your empowering
Multicultural lie,
Where the rich fuck the poor,
While the poor just die.

Did someone get up on the wrong side of the bed. Cool title.

Damn that's good! A rhyming poem that hits hard at the source of the matter. Based on how people vote, it's obvious they don't feel that they have anything for any way to change the system. That's really too bad.

Some, however, see it as a great opportunity to take out their anger on a local business in the name of "protest?" or maybe a chance to grab a little loot.

I'd hate to run into you on a bad day, Alex, but you do make some good points.

Okay! This struck a chord. Thank you.
