Deja Vu; Self-Destructing Are Fools

Deja vu.
So many have proven they are made,
Self destructing fools.
Over and over to be used.

Deja vu.
Taught to teach that they are the ones,
To control and rule.
Done to delude.
And live,
To fiction too!

Earth is not their place to erase.
Nor eliminate the human race.
To replace the color of one's face.
As if a choice to choose!

Deja vu.
Evil has risen its head,
From deceiving to do....
Openly to prove.

Again it's...deja vu.
Hating people of colored skin.
The ones intelligent without an end.
And this those racists can't pretend,
Does not to them offend!

Deja vu.
Evil has risen its head,
From a deceiving to prove...
Self destructing are fools.
And not born that way.
So self destructing are fools.
And not born that way.
Self-Destructing are fools!
