High Time

  W&M  by Mel Parker 10/31/15

Where are the statues, monuments and license plates?

Honoring all the slaves who helped build these United States.

 From the cotton fields to the White House, to the Capitol on the hill,

 

Driving spikes  & laying tracks... with an iron will to  live.

Some memories are too painful, some are filled with hate

Thank God for love and respect, they made our country great.

 (Repeat: II)

There are stains of shame throughout history,

The pain of change (chains) intense and slow

Although we’ve come a long, long way,

We’ve still got a long ways to go.

Yes, we have overcome so many things and some behaviors have changed.

We’re the sons and daughters of indigenous people, slaves & refugees,  we are humanity

I think it high time we came together,

High time we worked things out,

high time the red, white and blue,

Practiced all the rights written as law for me and you.

High time we came together,

High time long over due,

high time the red, white and blue,

Practiced all the rights written as law for me and you.

Our allegiance is pledgedMay we Live and respect … liberty and justice for all.
