    As I studied the
    MORPHEMES of language
    I understood more about
    your particular ways

    I know why
    'a man' such
    as yourself
    can not be
    divided into
    smaller (U)nits

    by educating myself
    I learned the
    word elements
    that best described
    why you do
    what you do

    And as I began
    to break the
    vocabulary down
    and adding
    my proverbial
    touch of lyre
    I discovered
    you all over
    page 713 of
    Webster's II

    Morphophonemics
    patterned your
    immorality
    and ... exposed
    you loud and clear
    here's what
    *Houghton-Mifflin
    says:

    Liar ... Self/ish ... Con

    thus I have only
    one question --
    does this lexicon
    really define you?

    ahhh

    true, there are those who appear to be what they are not ~ and through much eloquent speaking, form a shroud of disguise ~ therefore, engaging our hearts, "frauding the system" of love ...

    but what is another word for the woman who takes appropriate action when she begins to 'see'?

    "Wise"?

    this is tight my sista!

    Thank you

    A

    Sista Alyce...

    Ya' follow me ~ glad ya feelin' this...

    "Wise" = yet another meaningful word element that cannot
    be broken down into something smaller -- thus wrapping it all back into the poem...it describes ~ 'ME'...with a hint of distaste for those brothas who act different from the way the representations of their false images would have us to believe about them!

    Thanks sista - for flowin' with this piece!
