The system raped me

So I raped it

Nothing but disrespect

For the founding fathers who chose to neglect

My life and my ancestors intellect

The system was engineered

And geared

And steered in the

Direction of oppression and neglection

The miseducation of the negro

I can’t see my reflection

Don’t know how to write

So I can’t sign the petition

The system raped me

But I’m still here

The system raped me

But the ends near

No fear

In the presence of

The oppressor

This system is beneath me

It’s lesser

The system killed me

But I rose from the dead

To prevent hate from being

Spread
