I wrote this song from a poem written by my friend Derrick Gilbert (aka D-Knowledge) many years ago. D is struggling for his life right now so I thought I'd share this to draw attention to his gofundme page for his medical expenses. You can hear his beautiful spirit and sweet sense of humor in these words. I've sung this song hundreds of times and all over the world, but the most fun times were when D and I would trade lines back in the day at poetry readings here in Los Angeles. The themes came out of discussions after the LA riots in '92 and sadly many of the same issues are causing conflict and discussion today. I hope sharing this will help Derrick and contribute to a positive shift in conscious action for all of us.
