In Your Hands Now

GRANT PARK 2008,
100 GRAND ON HAND HOLDIN’ HANDS AS 
HOPE SPRINGS ETERNALLY ACROSS THE LAND
FOR WHICH IT STANDS
CHANGE WAS AROUND THE CORNER
PUTTING TO REST THE GHOSTS OF CABRINI AND THE HORNERS
PROJECT MOURNERS TURNED POLITICAL SUPPORTERS
FINALLY PROGRESS WAS MOVING FORWARD
THEN CAME THE SCREAMS TO CLOSE THE BORDERS
AS A DOSE OF REALITY TURNED INTO A MALICE SCENE
TOPPLING THE BALANCE BEAM
EXPOSING THE FACE OF INTER RACIAL HATE
UNEMPLOYMENT RATES, NEW MILLENNIUM DEPRESSION AND RECESSION
LEFT PEOPLE DISCONNECTED FROM THE FREEDOMS THEY INVENTED
INCREASING THE TENSION FOR A SCAPEGOAT ELEMENT
WHO BETTER THAN A BLACK PRESIDENT?
SETTING THE PRECEDENT FOR FAILURE IN OUR PSYCHE
ALONG WITH OIL PIPE DREAMS
SO AMERICA I ASK NOW
THE BALL’S IN YOUR HANDS NOW
HOW WILL YOU ALLOW THIS GENERATION TO PASS DOWN?
