Prisons and Graveyards



momma sings
momma sighs
momma mocks the sky

Black babies buried
Black babies chained
Black babies

this baby was shot
this baby was choked
this baby

momma sings slow songs
momma buries Black baby
momma sings

momma sighs stout sighs
momma’s baby bares chains
momma sighs

momma mocks the sky
why my baby?
baby why?

momma sings
momma sighs
momma mocks the sky

momma sings
momma sighs
momma mocks the sky
