MAYA ANGELOU ON KATRINA
When the land became water and
Water thought it was God,
Consuming lives here, sparing lives there,
Swallowing buildings, and devouring cities.
It was power, mighty power, grown careless
And intoxicated with itself, and
The American people were tested...
SPACEY GRACEY ON KATRINA
When God done flood our party city
It's high time to shelve the pity.
These old ways the wind done gone
Best to gas up 'fore too long
The Hummer we do drive the best
Might keep you drier than the rest.
Some got power, some got fun
Won't be long we're on the run.
Own two legs and shit. You remember those?
Gotta run, find some fun
Gotta run, find some fun.
Oops outta gas. Oops outta gas.
