    (bear with me scribes, I have to get this out before I lose my nerve)


    Like Gil Scot-Heron
    used to say to my troubled mind
    *black in the day

    "Be No Rain"

    that brotha would sing it
    like he knew of the pain
    and the heartache
    I'd soon go through

    Things I didn't know was comin
    Cause I wasn't even knowin that
    I truly needed somethin...

    I just thought it was a slick cut
    With some cool *** lyrics
    Wasn't till hell visited me
    That I began to hear it

    Heard it in my body
    Heard it in my soul
    Felt it numb my heart
    As it steady grew cold

    The storm came and lingered
    Thunder showers were my friend
    Didn't see the possibility that the night
    would ever end...

    But an angel of light spoke to me
    Through a sweet refrain
    Speaking love and reassurance
    That she could stop the rain

    I thank you all

    for your warm welcome. But a brotha knows his limitations. I'm no poet. Just wanted to stop by and show some love. I appreciate all your work on this board. My compliments to all the chefs up in this kitchen.

    Madame Destee, you da woman! Thank you.

    Peace to you all,

    Bert
