Where does love go
When there is no solution?
Does it lift a bum up
When his cigaret doesn’t light
Or help him pay a parking fine?
And does a cop shake a black man’s hand
When his brother has been shot
And the victim hasn’t seen the might
of God’s swift justice?
And does it stretch its arms wide
when a lonely women cries
over a fist that has gone uncuffed
and a black eye patched with a frozen steak?
And does it take a heart to change the world
When a hug is what a child needs
And unity isn’t enough?
