For No Particular Reason

Let’s go talk about the revolution out on the veranda

and wait for the White Zin to chill
We’ll speak in spirited tones of outrage about Darfur

while we wait for the corn to grill

We’ll talk intrepidly about capitalistic White demons

and how they stole our native soil

We’ll pass the time in fiery oration about reparations

while we wait for the lobsters to boil

We’ll curse the oppressor in the language of his ancestors

and their murderous thieving ilk

Girl where did you get that pretty duvet cover? ? ? ?

Is that real Chinese silk? ? ? ?

Don’t even get me started on them Chinese folks

now they’re the oppressor too

Investing in Africa and creating jobs

like we were going to do

I know you heard ole such and such is a big sell out now

Brother went out and got a federal gig

Trust me as soon as I get my tenure at the university

I’m gonna blow the lid off the system - You dig? ? ? ?

'Cus I’m a strong Black warrior

I won’t ever lose my edge

Honey have you seen my old step show shoes? ? ? ?

I heard the new Greeks are about to pledge

It’s so hard to be Black in America

Let’s discuss it over brunch at the Four Seasons

We’ll do lunch soon and talk about revolution

for no particular reason
