Justify My Love (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafyette, LA)

make sense of this needing
this waiting
this desire to be with you
to be part of you
to kneel in service
to place you above any others
Kiss me
in the dark
light a spark
hide it from the others
make me yours alone
I'd crawl across the barren earth for your touch
for the feel of you on my skin
i've searched for this all my life
for the inspiration
your perspiration
you put this in me
so now what?
so now what?
you stripped me of my clothes
laid me naked
in a bed of your lust
and made me a slave to your love
a fiend for your words
for your hopes
your dreams
i pray

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
