    I'm goin' thru a serious bout of writer's block right about now, so my mind was wanderin' when I did this.





    The masses shield their children's eyes
    from certain disagreeable scenes.
    Normally inconceivable schemes 2 start
    an uproar arise from idle minds that combine
    2 cause a decline in creativity & talent simply cuz
    it goes against the norm's design.
    Yet, it's the norm 2 have a queer eye 4 the straight guy.
    They create lies in hopes that their drastic actions will be Justified.
    Dramatics fashion the outlook & acceptance of the worlds inhabitants.
    They want U 2 remain in the box &
    suppress your uniqueness 2 be labled as just average.
    Get lost in the crowd instead of standing out...
    Silence the voice that angrily shouts 4 a recount...
    Screaming 4 the end of wrongful elections
    powered by families with political clout.
    If your father was president, should that make U qualified 2 do the job?
    Y'all deny the facts if U want, but the oval office was robbed.
    Mobbed by the Republicans.
    And life's returned 2 how it was in the era of Reagan.
    The only difference is this time, I'm old enuf 2 overstand what's happenin'.

    Brother, you could scribe
    a profound piece from each
    of the points you've made...
    even your writers block is
    thought provoking...
    flow on...

    if this is writer's block I would love to see when you flow like tha Nile...

    you on point with positive mind set
    hibernate and wait til next cuz we ain't seen nothin yet
    reflect and rewind so you can unwind and release
    refill your tank with premium so the flow will not cease
    you've touched us enough before
    that we can feed on that til there's more
    Trust this - the way you express knowledge, wisdom, and unity
    we're blessed, even in your silence, amidst our community!
