When the revolution comes

When the revolution comes some of us will probably catch it on TV, with chicken hanging from our mouths. You'll know its revolution cause there won't be no commercials

When the revolution comes


When the revolution comes

Preacher pimps are gonna split the scene with the communion wine stuck in their back pockets

Faggots wont be so funny then and all the junkies will quit their noddin and wake up When the revolution comes


When the revolution comes

Transit cops will be crushed by the trains after losing their guns and blood will run through the streets of Harlem drowning anything without substance

When the revolution comes


When the revolution comes

Our pearly white teeth froth the mouths that speak of revolution without reverence

The cost of revolution is 360 degrees understand the cycle that never ends

Understand the beginning to be the end and nothing is in between but space and time that I make or you make to relate or not to relate to the world outside my mind your mind. Speak not of revolution until you are willing to eat rats to survive


When the revolution comes

guns and rifles will be taking the place of poems and essays. Black cultural centers will forts supplying the revolutionaries with food and arms when the revolution comes

When the revolution comes

White death will froth the walls of museums and churches breaking the lies that enslaved our mothers when the revolution comes


When the revolution comes

Jesus Christ is gonna be standing on the corner of Lennox Ave and 125th St trying to catch the first gypsy cab out of Harlem, when the revolution comes


When the revolution comes

Jew merchants will give away motza balls and gifilka fish to anyone they see with afros. Frank Shieffin will give away the Apollo to the first person he sees wearing a blue dashiki, when the revolution comes


When the revolution comes afros gone be trying to straighten their heads and straightened heads gone be tryin to wear afros


When the revolution comes

But until then you know and I know niggers will party and bullshit and party and bullshit and party and bullshit and party and bullshit and party...


Some might even die before the revolution comes
