Poem: Whatever you have on tap

Whatever you have on tap

May not be the answer to the question

May not be the answer to the question

When all you are presented with is tainted water

You better ask for a filter

Although they may deny you that right

Claiming everything is alright

However, it may be another experiment underway

Tuskegee doesn’t seem so far away

For a $100 a day

Everything would have been ok

But the reminder of the haves and have nots

Must not be forgotten

So we see the game repeated over and over

Another generation left scarred as the community rolls over

To the few in charge

Better pay that surcharge

With your baby’s lives

Until help arrives

To expose the truth

Flint to you, we salute
