    Sibblings separated at birth
    Not because they were Siamese twins.........Just
    Afrikans...suffering from the
    auctioneer’s curse……what’s worse
    than the fact that they tried to divide us
    Is the fact that once freed……..THEY schemed and
    lied to us....Spittin rhetoric and falsehoods about
    Lincoln’s plan...to reunite the nation, inalienable rights…HUH!! ….
    not for the black population…….those sons and
    daughters of millions who voyaged through the
    passage, headed for.. for.. for the slaughter
    having their names erased
    Having their history erased
    Having their religion took
    Being asked to forgive cause it says so in the good-
    book.... Look!..Turn the page and contain your rage
    it’s GOD’s will, that we mame you and kill, all
    in an attempt to rename you, and break your will
    The thrill of victory appeares not to be ours to be had,
    I know this sounds pessimistic and sad,
    as if the seas are destined to stay rough
    and...our blessings on the surface
    may not look like much…….For GOD’S
    sake, keep the faith, delegate to H.I.M.
    the burden of your weight
    And you will see…… gladly enough,
    the tables will turn…..
    And you will see....Sadly enough,
    the evil doers will burn
    Torched and scorched amidst the flame
    to spend their dayz.......
    Smoldering in the heat fanned by shame
    will be those for whom......... El-Shabazz had
    a name...... A just reunion with a gasoline communion for all those who made the Black experience a living hell
    have a nice time with your namesake
    You...D....E....V....I....L

    I hear you my bruther
    and the wheels are turning
    we are the lost tribe
    that will one day
    unite again
    Peace and much love
    Peace

    Afrostotle.........as always the bar of excellence is "broken" in your presence

    and your knowledge, leaves me steeped in the deepness of your mind

    If you didn't end this poem.......I'd never want to leave...

    Believe me! Never...just sit and absorb your essence...

    Basking in Sunshine of your knowledge & wisdom

    Truly,
    Angelic

    you really spit the truth and i appreciate that...
    "Spittin rhetoric and falsehoods about
    Lincoln’s plan...to reunite the nation, inalienable rights…HUH!! "
    that reminds me of a picture i saw once with lincoln, surrounded by five or six little black children...people don't realize that it was not like that...he didn't free the slaves because he just loved black people...he did it to keep the states together...and even then he only freed the ones that were in the states fighting the war. We as black people have to educate ourselves...the schools are not gonna do it! You're poem is a very good start! Much respect for this...sorry my reply is so long. LOL

    Thanks for the love.......I really need and boomerang it back at ya'll. I wrote this piece after what, has been a daily routine at my university, and that is my of being surrounded by people of both persuasions, who seem to not only to not have a clue, but some actually have the audacity to be arrogant in their ignorance.

    Normally I can let it roll off my shoulders, after all, we all have opinions and those other "thangs", but also, as a cub born unto panthers, I feel if I don't DO... and say enough, then they won't ever understand why I've had......ENOUGH!!!!
