    The first rule of the game
    is recognizing there are no rules.
    Don’t be bamboozled by
    this numbers game
    where more went to the polls
    but the results stayed the same.
    Don’t be hoodwinked
    by voter nullification
    more went to the polls
    but the numbers didn’t change
    the results were the same
    white people lied 59 million wide
    whatever Black People want
    they’re on the other side.
    Don’t get took by hook and crook
    Don’t get taken by fakin’ and shakin’
    Don’t be goin’ for the okeedoke
    It ain’t no joke
    That’s why we broke
    In the land of milk and honey
    nada d/amn thing’z funny
    if you ain’t got no money.
    Don’t be mis-led
    by the scent of the fumes
    politicians telling stories
    of glooms and dooms
    the deals were sealed
    in smoke-filled rooms
    they aint got time for
    you aggravated coons.
    So what you mad
    itz jus 2 damm badd
    this land wasn’t made
    for me and you
    billionaires own it and
    millionaires run it
    thousandnaires get to
    play video games.
    It is no co-incidence
    the residence of their presidents
    is called the white house
    no Blacks allowed
    no matter how proud
    to be an american
    you might be.
    The rules of engagement
    are more like guidelines.
    The parameters of the battle,
    in the words of
    the spook by the door,
    we don’t have to win--
    just fight them to a standstill.

    Oldsoul...

    you make me feel as though I should

    :bowdown:

    every time I'm in the presence of your

    metaphorical genius...

    ...I have a favor to ask

    Please re-post this in the "Get your flow on"...

    this needs to be read...by all that come through
    and I just feel this is too phenomenal to be
    "Quiet and Peaceful"...when the message
    Screams for Revolution...

    Much love and Overwhelming Respect and Homage...Sage

    There's much to be said for this piece, unfortunately, by mis-fortune of time, but I do need to say this: yes, "more" than more went to the polls, and the numbers didn't change...but the question is...did we really exspect them to change? and the numbers won't change, because, like always, the more they change, the more they stay the same....
    ...We have to be the "Revolutions"
    We are the Millionaires that makes them Billionairs
    We are the ones, that keeps the White house "White" ...
    yes, we have been (for hundreds of years) bamboozed...in the worst way.

    this is a awesome write-up, thanks for sharing your wisdom..to all.

    The Okeedoke ain't no joke....We know that something went wrong, and what can we really do about it, except to make ourselves even stronger somehow? A bitter pill to swallow, it certainly is. On point oldsoul, keep bringing that wisdom. Hey, everyone, why not come to oldsoul's class this Sunday at 3pm?
