Break it over their backs

Another issue of indubitable importance

Is that certain members of the oppressor class

Join the oppressed in their struggle for liberation,

Thus moving from one pole of contradiction to the other.

It is a fundamental role in history starting with Jesus

Who could have had nice shoes but instead went barefoot.

Cease to be exploiters/consumers

Indifferent spectators  

Or simple heirs of exploitation

And move to the side of the exploited,

Then shit starts to change

From dark to light brown

But some of your prejudices, your deformations,

And your stink will linger

Which includes a lack of confidence

In The Peoples' ability

To think,

To want

To know

So remember to bring God
