    Amerikkka still benefitting from the fruits of our labor
    everyday they come up with different ways to enslave ya
    check their behavior
    while they tell you to turn the other cheek
    they're trying to sneak thru the back door of their neighbor
    slide on his slippers
    then kick up their feet
    they're wicked I tell ya
    but never mind that let's pick up the heat
    600 hundred years of blood sweat and tears
    and **** near nothing to show for it
    by now Nat Turner should have a holiday as I hear him yelling off in the distance
    "f-ck it, let's just go for it"
    cause "I'se don't care if'n massa hear me"
    matter of fact, I think that bastard fear me
    that's why he got me in these chains
    watch what I do next time he's near me
    even if it costs my life
    I'm gonna send this message clearly
    "I'm your brother, don't u recognize me"
    I ain't forgot about that passage in the Middle
    or the passion in your riddles
    or the lessons about my "Roots"
    while listening to that black man with the fiddle
    all the while contemplating
    why did they have to come and bother me
    they took away my paradise
    I can only imagine how Ruby Davis felt when she lost Ozzie D
    come follow me
    and if the woods are too dark, then just follow my sound
    there's a beautiful conductor leading us toward freedom
    and u don't need a ticket to catch this choo choo underground
    just one thing, keep quiet
    we don't need no "intellectual Babble"
    nor "60 lines of thought"
    just keep the oath like a mason and be prepared to travel
    our first stop is Rosewood
    where cracka's is up to no good
    so some blacks had to become "the Deacons for defense"
    I heard they hold down their whole hood
    that makes me feel so good
    to know that we're striking back for what they did to emmitt Till
    The Judge lied in the courtroom, but So'jouner brought the Truth
    to show that even some of our women kill
    just look around at all the "eyes"
    that spirit's in some of our women still
    "soon and very soon, we are going to see the king"
    like an old negroe spiritual
    I hear the voice of ancestors in the wind
    if you focus you can hear them too
    back on the plantation
    they couldn't let this ***** in the house
    so I plotted in the field
    on different ways to take that white ***** out
    no smile on my face
    at times my eyes not even blinking
    about to black out
    meaning I'm not even thinking
    only thought is too take revenge
    for them stealing my view of the Sun, Moon and Stars
    Gomar, Oz and Dubar
    my freedom, culture and way of life
    but the one thing still haven't taken is my face off of Mars
    these Un-civilized bastards
    are the illigitimate children of G-d...................

    Brother Poet Info-moetry,

    Remarkable. If I could have liked this piece 10 times, I would have. The subject's voice is powerful and distinct. The name dropping coupled with his background stories was more than palpable. Truly enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing.

    peace sister,

    I appreciate your appreciation.

    Let your son know that it's ok if he wants to print it out and read it for his class.......

    I'm humbled by his suggestion...
