Rainey William's playground was THE MOTT HAVEN streets
Where he ran past melted candles and flower wreaths,
names and photos of the young black faces,
whose death and blood consecrated these places
Rainey's mother said "Rainey stay at my side
For you are my blessing, you are my pride.
It's your love here that keeps my soul alive
I want you to come home from school and stay inside."

Rainey'd do his work and put his books away.
There was a channel showed a Western movie everyday
LYNETTE brought him home books on the black cowboys of the Oklahoma range
AND the Seminole scouts that fought the tribes of the Great Plains.
Summer come and the days grew long,
Rainey always had his mother's smile to depend on.
