    Where are my radical friends?
    What happened to their eyes?
    The eyes that once saw
    unfairness, bias and neglect, now
    see only victims, and social burdens.
    Lasiks destroyed peripheral vision.
    Like Bother Eldridge, they got saved
    and the burden has fallen to Jesus.
    Sunday morning parades show their
    righteousness through checkbooks,
    but while Brother Eldridge barbeques,
    the rest twist on the grill of poverty
    and despair wondering if the friends
    of the community died, or just got rich.

    speaking to Amun-Ra

    Amun-Ra

    Perhaps if you ask Brother Eldridge
    would you do it again? would you
    proclaim violence? Would you do
    behaviors of youth in your old age?
    Would turn down the blessings of old
    age for the curses of youth?

    The blood, the death, the struggle
    would you desire it back?

    Amun-Ra, Perhaps Brother Eldridge would say "Hot eternal fire" NO!!!!!

    Thank your Poem
    You made me think
    I don't want me youth back
