Congresswoman Maxine Waters B-day!

Today is Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ Birthday (1938)…. I wrote a song for her a coupla months ago…She is the second black woman from California to be elected to Congress….here are the lyrics….

She don’t twist in synthetic truth to cover her ears

for what? seem like years

to keep us pretty

blind

blind to her

Fier/f e a r/ce  beauty

beauty

I seen justice flowin’ like Maxine Waters

no trickle down

she don’t let it roll off her back no

she don’t leave her sons and daughters

high

an

dry

no

as the levy’s rise

she ain’t out

travelin

acting free

like me

no she restlin’ with my peoples’

deeds

(down that water way after Mississippi was purchased as a slave, put more wood in the water, more bone in the trees, more leaves in the hands of thieves will take everything ‘cept responsibility…)

she don’t need no hand out she know what she put in she git out

she got the ways and means

subcommittee

pavin’ the poundment from furious st. louis to tireless cali

til the world know

from the first

from the first

from the first

black woman’s for ’em

the first black woman’s forum

She ain’t out

travellin

actin’ free

like you with me

nah she restlin’ with her people’s

dreams

if not now when the hell when?

 

“GET IT DONE” Maxine Waters…
