    February 30th Movement

    by Raymond Nat Turner

     

    Now, ebry two to four years

    Cap'n Fletcher come ridin' in

    Bareback, facin' backwards

    On Massa William's ol' mule

    Feintin' right, floggin' left, like

    An overseer righteously angry

     

    Cap'n Fletcher say, "Shut up--

    Listen!" Him say, Dem say

    We weak

    Misspeak

    Too pure

    Immature

    For his movement

     

    Him say, Dem say

    Dey tell US

    'Bout power

    If we "Shut up--

    Listen!" Him say, Dem say

    We wrong

    Not strong--

    Dem German boys

    Dat Russian boy

    Be stark ravin' mad

    No good

    For his movement

     

    Him say, Dem say

    Dey tell US

    'Bout power

    If we "Shut up--

    Listen!" Him say, Dem say

    Power ain't perfect,

    Power messy--

    You put your right

    Hand out, your right

    Foot out, bow, scrape

    Do de turnabout

    Grab coattails of

    De CEO,

    Snuggle your snouts

    In his hind and don't

    Let go;

    Maybe, jus' a tiny, lil'

    Sugarcoat , movin', you

    Hold your nose and vote...
