The actor was teaching us,
about Britain and the colonies,
I can’t help thinking though,
there were no rights,
for some people.
And yet they were here, a part of us,
the first people,
being pushed west, dying,
and Africans being bought and sold,
in the market place,
God have mercy.
It wasn’t until August 6, 1965,
that African Americans could vote,
And by the way,
Britain abolished slavery,
long before we did.
God have mercy on us.
