Black Lives in Black History

Y’all know this is Black History Month?

A month for the obvious celebration.

You’d agree black lives matter, right?

Cause what’s a movement without realization?

Can we say those two go hand in hand?

Why not, it’s supporting African Americans!

One day my descendants will read textbooks,

Describing the movement and all its accomplishments.

Incorporating it into Black History so the world will understand,

Why we go oh so hard for black people!

It’s something black skin does to our non-existent fans…
