The High Court - Poem by Steven Taylor

right and leftversus right and wrong
a racist choir
that never sang a gospel song
old white folks in black robes
thinking they can sing a song
that will make us get along
puffed up with their
special law degrees
from the ivy league
rich racist white men
lives full of political intrigue
write lyrics
that these pompous black robed choir boys
all sing and masquerade as harmony
yet the music that they make
will ever be
an off key song
to the poor and disenfranchised folks
like you and me
right and left versus right and wrong
same old racist song
cause if you ain't rich
nigga you ain't free
you're just a commercial watching wannbee
a homeless, nameless refugee
decisions and justice, ...
well, hopefully
there is a God,
and a higher court
and truth in spirituality
and all the hate and jealousy
the lies and wars and greed
the dog eat dog just to succeed
the dominance these racists need
the pestilence on which they feed
will finally be made to heed
be judged for every hateful deed
then plucked and cast just like a weed
and love will reign eternally
