The Mama Offensive

The Mama Offensive

Don’t cover your eyes Mama

Let your tears spring life into the dead souls of the colonized

If you need to pray Mama

Let your prayer manifest through the your clenched fist

Don’t tell the people to calm down Mama

They are angry because your pain is their pain

Don’t get on the defensive Mama

You know your daughter wasn’t no crack whore

You know your son wasn’t no “thug”

Take the offensive with the people at your side Mama

Command them with your pain

Avenge the lost souls of our babies

Our children born from our womb

Our blood coursing through their veins eventually left to drip into the sewer

Their lifeless bodies scooped up from the ground like road kill

Mama show the colonizing forces how you have been transformed

Like the Mama of Emmitt Till showed her son to the world

Show them you will not pacify your language

You are armed Mama

Speak to the masses because they will listen

They will take up the call because they see themselves in you

Don’t let no compromised Negro tell you how to politic

Don’t let them whisper in your ear the colonizer’s shouts of

Control them Niggers

Mama be strong, the masses will protect you

They too need to be liberated and are being transformed to do what is necessary

They want to end the terror that took the life of your child

Your child who has now become their child

Don’t cover your eyes Mama

Look directly at the camera and say….
