State The Facts - Poem by Byron Cornell Ford II

Living on this earth
Don't never expect peace
Babies living to die at birth
Leaders turning the other cheek

So many things not said to your face
speeches about you behind your back
all the gossip this world is disgraced with
why attempt to state the facts?

I attempt to state facts
for those babygirls and boys
who one day will hold gats
skipping the joy of Children toys

I attempt to state facts
for victims of genocide
you can see their ribs out they backs
you view true inocence in their eyes

Attempting to state the facts
I realize its truely easy
for me and you to sit back
and view all this drama on TV

Teletubbies got canceled
only to be replaced with
Live war and it's true handle
on the frown of dying faces

In my attempt to state facts I prayed
Day after day, til the lord finally pushed
he said in a betrayed kinda way
It all falls back on the Burning Bush

I state the facts for every baby sister
that has to tell her mama
that lump on her tummy aint no blister
and she bout to be Big mama

I'm stating the facts
but it's kinda hard son
ima have to come back
this is just part one
