(Spotify does it again.  Something about band grooves with no words.  Day 261…)

This is a jazz groove by The Crusaders.

“Really?”
He said with a puzzled smile on your face
And I
Knowing him so well
Understand I have much clout in his mind because of who I am.

This isn’t a tale in which
He had to be there too understand the gravity of the events I recall
Since they’ve had opportunity to happen again
And have yet to happen again
The magnitude is as tangible as turning on Headline News

Then
Like kids tend to do
He asked a question more poignant than he realized
“Why haven’t we had a second Black President?”
