Hip Hop vs. Cuba

Undefined, without definition, never refined,
Strangers left speechless, show compassion,
Carry children on your shoulders,

Gone through turmoil, powerful countries stealing oil,
Poverty of Africa on CNN, everybody afraid to ask why,
Colonization by Britain and America raping Africa,
Can’t blame civil wars, or child soldiers in Darfur,

Gangsters and dictators, bring back King,
Not Leopold but Martin, less war and more peace,
Comprehend no resistance, acceptance of oppression,
Rise from the dead and paint an X on court room steps,

….

Undefined, without definition, never refined,
Strangers left speechless, show compassion,
Carry children on your shoulders,

Artists promote sexual exploitation in the name of creativity,
Play songs on repeat intended to trap people economically,
Defined as trap music even though Jews were trapped in a Ghetto,
Rappers pretend to have talent, while Huey held a PhD,

Kiss every hop scotch child on the forehead,
Under the sun, sits a daughter not an object of desire,
Nations handing out honorary citizen awards to Hollywood,
Refusing to pay reciprocity back to slave trade victims,

Undefined, without definition, never refined,
Strangers left speechless, show compassion,
Carry children on your shoulders,

Without punishment, speak honestly,
Men and women play the same game,
Between a man’s legs, desire chases,
Those who witness, play dress-up,

In 2017, instead of knowledge,
Songs teach us how to grind and lean against a wall,
Detailing inch size and favorite position,
Forgetting Assata resides in Cuba,

Undefined, without definition, never refined,
Strangers left speechless, show compassion,
Carry children on your shoulders,
