“And Then… Be…” (BRSSH Tribute to Paul Robeson & Nina Simone)

Don’t Be comparing yourself to Paul Robeson and Nina Simone if you ain’t never been the Award Winning Champion of your Discipline in THEIR World,

And then…

Make the Conscious Decision to use your God-Given Talent as an instrument to Champion the Voice of YOUR People,

And then…

Be Divested from and Sabotaged by THEM to the detriment of your accustomed earnings and livelihood.

And then…

As a result, Be Attacked by your colleagues working to gain favor with Them; happy to take your place,

And then…

Be Abandoned members of your family, friends, and lovers.

And then…

Continue to Live Free as a Black Rock Star Super Hero,
even until the end of Your Days.
