Anymore # 3 - Poem by Eric Cockrell

and if we choose nothing,
then where lies the choice?
the body has to be willing,
for truth to have a voice....

there's sharks in the water covered with oil.
the melting pot simmers, comes to a boil.
it's struggle and try, hard work and toil,
the talons bared, and the snake is coiled....
as slavery takes hold on American soil.
equality the plan, the plot is foiled!

and as the wind blows hard on freedom's shores,
we stare in the mirror, and unlock the door....
our sons their victims, our daughters their whores,
we're not gonna take it anymore!
........just not gonna take it anymore!
