Uproot, Depart

"When the looting starts,
the shooting starts."

But when did the executing start?
When did the racist recruiting start?

And when will the prosecuting start?

That will be when the suits will start
elocuting and refuting parts,
disputing and diluting parts

Computing charts
and polluting hearts

When the shooting starts,
persecuting starts
Saluting and jackbooting starts

When truth departs,
Expect the pursuit of justice to start
With boots on feet and fire in hearts
to tear that brutal rule apart
