To All the People Still Living in Cages

I’m not in there with you
I’d never survive it
Have to stand out here, just
Talkin’ about it

But that
My brothers
I do

I say
Half a them didn’t even hurt anybody
Nobody at all
Read ma lips

I say

Let those out
Let them out again

An’ all the rest?

Find ’em a mama
Strong enough to be a mama
In a world like this one

A culture
That doesn’t call sadistic murder
Entertainment
But consensual
Love
Forbidden

Find them one moment
One moment of your mind
When you light up
Your celebration of
Freedom,
My brothers and
Sistahs

To say thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
We’re so sorry

Be
Right
There
