By Bob Dougherty
On every weekend of the year,
Our young needlessly die.
This doesn't make the News At Eight.
Why don't you wonder why?
The President of this here land,
Attorney General too,
What of Homeland Security?
They’re all hiding from view.
Where are the marching preacher men,
And N double A C P?
No one cries to stop these killings,
They're Black on Black, you see.
