Nothing Has Changed

Nothing Has Changed

A Poem by Rico X

Half tea and half lemonade 
Being sipped in the shade 
Dark skin being whipped 
For mistakes that God has Made? 
While injustice flows down 
The cracks of black asses 
As blood mixes with molasses 
Making a preserve that Master 
Feels they all deserve 
As injustice is served 
Via ropes, nooses and chains 
Jim Crow laughing 
Over and over again 
Cause many, many years later 
Nothing has changed
