Somebody told me that we have a Black President,
just ‘cuz he didn’t want to go to ‘Nam
and ‘cuz he smoked weed,
and ‘cuz he cheated on his old lady,
and ‘cuz he says words like ‘cuz.
But the only Black man that I know,
never smoked a joint,
fought in the war against Black America,
and did two rounds with the VIET CONG,
he was a champion for the foundation of Black culture; FAMILY.
You won’t agree with everything he says,
but you know he will never lie to you.
That’s the only Black man that I know.
CLARENCE A. PENN III July 31, 1944 – June 7, 2005
