You'll never look at a chocolate covered cherry the same way.

Chocolate covered creamed filled worries,
everyone loves chocolate covered cherries.
delicious inside creamy white cream,
covered in milk or dark chocolate dream,
oh boy what a sweet neat team.
One can't do without the other,
the cherry needs all to smother brother.

The red man got put on the reservation,
the cherry in the middle of this white creamy nation,
losing the battle was the only explanation.
The black man way over in the African sun,
on the outside chocolate jungle fun,
got packed on the slave ship under the gun.
Chocolate covered cherries end up
being the end product,
every ingredient with a pschyed out conduct.

The black man chocolate dip,
for a long time had to worry about
the kkk hangmans noose and masters whip.
The white man creamy white,
was highly visible to the Indian
both day and night,
losing the scalp was a scarey fright.
The cherry red Indian had to survive
on the reservation,
almost starve in a wealthy rich nation.

Chocolate worries never end,
for the black man life still doesn't offer
very much dividend.
Little chocolate bunnies lose hope,
can't make it past slaveries scope,
hop around strung out on dope.
Basically supplied by the big creamy white,
under the cover of dark chocolate night.

And before the black man, KKK was after's history, in the past and ofttimes in the present. Some people just don't/won't take time to know other people. I still like chocolate covered cherries :o)
