Know Your History: Mr. Wendal


Mr. Wendal has freedom, a freedom that you and I think is dumb: Free to be without the worries of a quick-to-diss society — for Mr.Wendal’s a bum.His only worries are sickness and an occasional harassment by the police and their chase. Uncivilized we call him, but I just saw him eat off the food we waste. Civilization, are we really civilized, yes or no ? Who are we to judge when thousands of innocent men could be brutally enslaved and killed over a racist grudge? Mr. Wendal has tried to warn us about our ways but we don’t hear him talk Is it his fault when we’ve gone too far, and we got too far, cause on him we walk. Mr.Wendal, a man, a human in flesh, but not by law. I feed you dignity to stand with pride, realize that all in all you stand tall.

Go ahead, Mr. Wendal. Oh. And Know Your History.

    i wouldn’t doubt. Dionne Farris, the woman with the pretty voice who sang on Tennessee, was supposed to release an album in ’04. She’s pretty talented.

    i’m sure this song makes you cringe, what with your aversion to the romanticization of poverty and all.

    He gave dude some knowledge, and all he got in return were some shoes. I bet they were thrift store chuck taylors, or since they were hippies, some of those ankle-high boots with the yellow stitching.
