My People

Black people say "my people"
and I wonder who are mine
but what comes up is painful -
like my people in Viet Nam

Soon after, Bush sold us all a crock
and rushed us into phony war;
our white jaws dropped in "shock and awe"
the next nation invaded: Iraq

No win, withdrew with worse amnesia -
 Iraqis we'd paid morphed into ISIS -
 but while we attack them in Iraq
we're busted for supporting them in Syria!

Do you feel as sad as I do
for the mass deaths of brown civilians?
Our country's "by and for" rich white folks
all the rest of us die for their profits
