Rope lynching was impractical,
drew big crowds
Stupid hoods, tree requirements
The rolling heads,
scared the shit out of the wife and kids
Electrical lynching had potential,
Great V.I.P. section,
killer utilities, don’t have that swing,
no rolling heads
Bored the shit out of the wife and kids
Lynched by Authority,
lynched by cop
Death in second, hand amendments
Shot in movies, shot in class,
bloody previews, cap in the ass
Red river, blood streams
Lynched by Amerikan Dream.
