KATRINA!!!!

Katrina, Katrina what made you so mean?
Katrina, Katrina you're worst than a crack fiend!

Bush promises, an Halliburton moves in fulfilling
mandates with no bid contracts as New Orleans and
Biloxi resembles the bomb-out shell that once was
Mesopotamia. As the once contained oil seeps back
from where it came, contaminating the land of the
displaced, considered refugees in the Astro-dome.
The promises of Bush are as revealing as Judge
Roberts confirmation hearing - and we are asked
to trust he will be fair. But we know the Bush
political agenda is the neo-cons revelation,
Chapter 6 - Verse 5.

Katrina, Katrina what made you so mean?
Katrina, Katrina you're worst than a crack fiend!

The levees broke open the heart of America like
the piecing screams of an Afrikan baby thrown
overboard during the middle passage - as
slavery's face grimaced with the knowing the
federal government cares nothing about New Afrikan
people As CNN broadcast their affliction around
the world, embarrassing democracy, exposing
America's history of eco-racism in living color;
but mostly in black and white. With the 9th Ward
in disrepair, white flight and black despair,
proceeding mass gentrification to ensure the
poor are dispersed to new enclaves of poverty,
hidden away from the disaster of media exposure.

Katrina, Katrina what made you so mean?
Katrina, Katrina you're worst than a crack fiend!

Where are the 2500 New Afrikan babies? A reminder
of the retreat from Vietnam and the kidnapping of
Vietnamese babies; as in New Orleans the taking of
babies, leaving the parents behind, to watch water
lines climb, as tears and fears stretched into the
dark unknown; while CNN reports floating bodies
and the national guard wait on standby for the
next commercial break of red tape so no one could
escape their watery fate, sponsored by Dick Cheney
and Halliburton.

Katrina, Katrina what made you so mean?
Katrina, Katrina you're worst than a crack fiend!

Hurricane Carter did 25 years for a crime he did
not commit, a prime example of American justice
personified. Hurricanes in America always screw
poor folks. The hurricane should hit the White
House and leave the Bushes in Shock and Awe,
perhaps, then they will be better off; and we'll
name that hurricane Mumia!
