Portfolio | Become A Fan
My great, great grandma's name was Mattie
But they never called her name
She was a good black slave
She called the master's wife
Miss Jane

My granddad's name was Carry
He worked the white man's field
From dawn to dust
But never called
By his name
He was called coon,
The N word or
A number

To belittle him more
They called this grown man
Boy

My mother's name is Mary
She worked hard for
Our bread and butter
Took all kinds of jobs
To pay the rent
Sunday was a special treat
She baked sweet cakes
For us to eat
and
Thanked the Lord she worked a week

She called her boss-lady
Mrs. out of respect
They called her by her
given name like a child
All she did was grit her teeth
And smile

Some call me Miss.
Some call me lady
Some got the nerve
To call me crazy
My name is Cookie

I'm a mother of four
I do my work and get my pay
Thank my God at night
Pray we see another day

"You respect me
I'll respect you
Let's not forget
We are all -human

You see me smiling
Because
I'm truly happy
Thank you God for letting me
Be born in the twentieth century
I'm black, I'm proud
And I'm
Some -what- free
My name is Cookie
