The federal government was much too slwo responding to Hurricane Katrina. Point of view for this song by Allen Watty? A rooftop survivor trying to stay alive. In August of 2005 Hurricane Katrina clobbered the New Orleans area, and the death toll was estimated at 1,800. The black community was hit hard. Watty tune mourns and protests.
Then it hit me.
Ain’t nobody coming to get me.
Nobody feels my pain.
Once again the clor of my skin
Reminds me ain’t nothing changed.
