Ferragamo’s on my feet, a Hugo trench on my back,

But please believe it’s not about what I wear.

There’s so much more to me than that.

I’m forthright and direct, genuine and true.

I believe in my abilities, even when belief is not in you.

I’m a man of greatness, my true greatness, not yet achieved.

So why should I care, what anyone else thinks of me?

I’m full of life and love experience and I’m wise too.

I seek a change in a system, so corrupted and askew.

A worldly system, so plagued with discrimination,

is a system that will fall, and fail in recuperation.

Through determination, I’ll do my best to make you aware.

I’m an educated Black Man, America’s worst nightmare!
