    They're Baaack...
    by Raymond Nat Turner

    Bogeyman defeated, they' d overcome their fears
    And were baaaack partying, lord, four more years...
    Like party peacocks prancing under artificial sun
    Celebrating unlimited prospects – an eight year run

    They came without woes and came without cares
    Congressmen, mayors and multimillionaires

    Parading and charading; charading and parading
    Charading and parading; parading and charading

    Letting their hair down and dropping their disguises
    Jockeying for more subcontracts and more franchises
    In charged the black bourgeoisie's creme de la creme
    Maneuvering madly to touch their Messiah's hem

    They came without woes and without cares
    Congressmen, mayors and multimillionaires

    Parading and charading; charading and parading
    Charading and parading; parading and charading

    Big Negroz, and even the small time ones he pimps
    Bedecked in their resplendent gowns,tuxes and tails
    Frantically elbowing one another to get a glimpse –
    Watching
    freedom fighting leaders languish in jails...
