MOM


My pretty black baby, why you sigh?
Let mommy put a Star in your eye
Let mommy put a word in your ear
Let mommy take away your tear

Your lovely sister's, be they light and fair?
Be they curly long and wavy hair?
Be they look down at you, and think they're better
Remember these words I say
So you can rise above them, in every way

Back in the day, just after dust
The Slave-Master enter my hut with lust?
As my cold black body tremble
I create a child, that wouldn't resemble

To us, through us, you came
And over the years, they have forgotten our names

Don't call me ugly?
Don't call me Darkie
Just call me MOM..........Mother-Of-Mulatto's
