Tradeau

Funny thing about pointing fingers, when you do, for your one finger pointed, three point back at the accuser most often.  This truism seems to proven itself this time around.

 

Tradeau
by Michael Romani

Well, would you look at that
We're entitled to opinions 
But not separate facts
Peel it back like an onion
And tell me what you see
The truth has seldom been heresy

Self appointed narrative can be a trip
Especially when spoken by hypocritical lips
Talking all about non-evidenced racism
And allowance toward another's 'fascism'
Whit is you captured in 'brownface'
And a past you don't wish to embrace

The times we've lived through
Are perhaps long overdue
Always interesting and ever changing
Constantly moving and rearranging
And still we have this truth
Who did what in whose youth?
