When I'll Wave the flag

I'll wave the flag
When the trillions in reparations are paid to the
       African American Nation
For 400 years of being terrorized in America
When the bill of the Middle Passage is paid
When the bill from the cotton fields is paid

I'll wave the flag
When the damages due the descendents of mass murder
       is paid
Mass kidnapping
Mass rape

I'll wave the flag
When the police stop terrorizing us for breathing
       while black
Walking while black
Loving while black

I'll wave the flag
When the 2 million men and women in prison are
       for petty crimes
And those guilty of stealing elections take their
       in the cells

I'll wave the flag
When those guilty of stealing labor, stealing
       stealing souls of the poor are jailed

I'll wave the flag
When those guilty of the miseducation of our
children are
       jailed for crimes against humanity

I'll wave the flag
When those who terrorize the earth, pollute the
       poison the food, the water, the air
Inject animals with hormones
Genetically alter vegetables and fruits
When these people are taken before the world court
       terrorizing the world
I'll wave the flag

Until then
Kiss my motherfuckin' ass.

2001 Marvin X
