Big Daddy

You draw yourself
with a number 2 pencil
deft at
and erasing
yesterday’s self

They don’t remember

be whatever
they want
you to be

you have the power
to change,
but they don’t

It’s 1930
all over again

we shall overcome
some day

When will that day be?

Deep in my heart
I still believe

Will we make it
Do we have a chance?

We shall overcome
some day

Who’s going to
pay for that?

Who’s going to
give you what you need?

Big Daddy
Papa T

a Daddy
till they
wake the hell up

When will that day be
