Now tell me someting…

Mistah Police Spokesman, tell me someting:

How long yu really tink
we would a tek yu baton lick

an yu racist politics, racist politics, hey?

Well down in Bristal

but dem chase yu babylon away
man yu shoulda see yu babylon
how dem really run away
yu shoulda see yu babylon dem
dig up dat dey, dig up dat dey, dig up dat dey…

– Linton Kwesi Johnson, ‘Making History’
