Twenty Two Score and Nine Years Ago
Our fathers were brought forth on this continent
as slaves to build a nation conceived by death and dishonorment
dedicated to the proposition that all slaves were three fifths less then equal.
Now that we are engaged in the great battle of time
our ermines has us annihilating our own mind
We are on the great battlefield of that war of freedom, Justice and equality.
We have come to fight for those whom blood was spilled
It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
We come to fight for the living and the dead who struggle(ed)
from the rising morning to the dark of the night.
Two score and ten years ago desegregation was brought to the nation highest court
What a land of equality
Two score and ten years ago Emmett Till death came swiftly for allegedly whistling
at a white woman
What a land of Justice two white murders set free
Two score and one year ago four young girls
were killed in Alabama while attending Sunday school
What a nation of love and peace
they will bomb you at the face of God with no regard
We the children and descendent's of slaves stand to form a more perfect union
We stand to establish justice
We stand to insure domestic tranquility
Our army stands to provide common defense and to secure the blessings of our
freedom, justice, liberty and equality God has bestowed on us as human beings
