Daniel

 

Daniel

is traveling right now on the train


He's been off the streets for a month

and if he makes his curfew by 10:00

he won't get kicked out again.


Oh, oh, Oh

I see the anxiousness in his eyes

as I drive him to the station

and wave goodbye.

His twin sons at Harvard Law

and his girls 5 and 10,

can't rely on Daddy anymore

cause his unemployment ran out again.

Oh, oh, Oh

Daniel my brother,

you are younger than me

and I feel the real pain,

of the scars society won't see.

like

When they gauge the

color of your skin,

to predetermine you'll never

kick their crack assumption again


oh, Oh, oh

so shelter now until till

set-up to fail at 10:00

keep the doors revolving

like native American history,

to keep the pale employed

as the only ones

allowed truly free.

Daniel my brother,

you are younger than me

and I feel the real pain,

of the scars society won't see...



If ya enjoyed taday's story climax, please select yer social carrier
and help spread the infection!
