"South Central Farms"
There once was a farm in South Central L.A. where the families would work and lil' children once played if you were under 5 feet you would get lost for days 2 blocks across the way beautiful lots of ways better believe it wasn't always this quiet Hollywood was burning next to Compton in the riots Back in 92 entire Cali empires extinct Mutiny on the Queen Mary sunken in a blink Listen up kids they gave the ashes to the people the sifted through the afterbirth the aftermath of evil.
With leadership Mexica in a rugged neighborhood 'til they turned the soil over and they saw that it was good families deep real deep they came together tethered fences together soiling sessions together. Eagle and Condor feather the smoggiest weather Xicano ties don't sever the tougher the better.
They were blessed over a decade passed by and all the little seeds well they grew up fast why the vegetation penetrated inside youth green covered by black and grey from birds eye view 350 families tasting some sovereignty on private property although their stricken with poverty
On a rainy day they got a letter from the owner but not from The Creator from a lawyer and a bulldozer they cried and said give peace a chance give sugar cane squash cabbage and beans a chance give nopalis and corn, Give snow peas a chance avocados lemons banana trees a chance
Crushed and conquered that's when a little girl cried and broke all the hearts of the passers outside Compassionate movement, a passion improvement and soon the small crowd grew into massive units.
Heroes and students came celebrities came too ministers rock bands hip hop acts came through to see for themselves just in case that it ain't true the Garden of Eden was right in front of them plain view green and yellow dragons hovering above them and they hated that the people and the media had loved them the only urban farm in South central LA and somebody wants to take it away Land lost to a political circuit although the land belongs to the people who work it but it doesn't matter anyways until it hits you on the day that you die- you can't take none of it with you
