    Like Chocolate Do
    Beats by Dave Johnson with allcaps productions

    Dedicated to all the generations who knew: Having faith means taking action. Faith is a VERB.

    She runs her race
    With her chocolate face,
    Where people value chocolate most,
    When chocolate stays
    In chocolate's place,
    Where to take a peaceful stand alone
    Is insubordination,
    And her comrades fall to incarceration
    as she questions each day she survived the first strike,
    Tasting the toxic waste of bias
    Till even her own thoughts begin to stink,
    And her brain starts to think
    That it feels like home to suffer and burn,
    Like a hater in waiting for the season to turn,
    And the creature she becomes disgusts you,
    she frightens you,
    One chicka's failure is another one's friend,
    Then they look around and wince with that
    false innocence saying,
    "How could she come to such an end?"
    But a cocoa woman can overcome ya!
    It arouses you like chocolate do,
    And irritates those with a sense of entitlement,
    Those lighting up the blind spots that guarantee the have-nots
    Get their hands on a damned good shot
    at living in abject poverty and violence,
    Till chocolate gives up,
    Says it feels like home to be locked up,
    To be punished for the autumn of this filthy adaptation,
    For striking back in wild frustration at the mis-education she was first disposed,
    Stabbing at herself with the first tool given,
    Stoned and owned by these mushroom conditions,
    Needing more faith, and a little less wishing
    Cuz in Jesus,
    that’s how chocolate rolls
