Here we go again
February overstating her importance
Hogging the spotlight
What about the other months
The more complete months

Boy, are we myopic
Exposing our impotence
Choosing the shortest month
To celebrate the longest history
My history came before February
Before this calender

World history is black history
But taught from an imposter’s perspective

If it were up to me
March would have taken the honours
‘Cos that’s all we ever do

When unity would accomplish much more
Unite the months for starters
Celebrate black history all year round
Unite kings and queens

Demonstrate a proud legacy
Discover the greatness that lies within

How we carry ourselves an absolutely necessity
By any means necessary more productive

Beat them at their own game
Unite people with purpose
