    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.

    Glad to see this in the main poetry forum. We may falter, but when one becomes weak, it is easier to lift them up if we are actually standing side by side. Keep flowing with strength brotha.

    OldSoul this is tight. I like the Malcolm flow, the Don't push me I'm close to the edge flow. So much truth in this here. I just found out today that Arafat had a Jewish accountant to help him steal the money over a billion from his people. The Jewish authoritys knew this, but they kept silent cause its a fever. They do it to their own. We get it over here. The elected powers take this corporation called America and us all on a ride of fear. Oh yes it's a corporation. Structured just the same. Worker bees doing the production, fighting in this game. No health benefits, no raises coming down. All the profit set up to go upstairs to those elected by those elected clowns. If you want to ruin a company you must out do their due. Get all of their workers Americans abound to see your point and cheer your cause for you. They won't be having that. So they fire you with a gatt. Bullet in your head. Cause they ain't having that. But while we stand by waiting they poison water and air. Took all the jobs, and destroy our homes and lives for profits they must bear.

    I don't like Ralph Nader, would never vote for him but he does make some sound points. Read more of them here.

    http://www.corporatepredators.org/nader.html


    Corporate Predators. It is not just the versatility of their writings -- covering bribery, pollution, corporate crime, fraud and abuse, failure of law enforcement, union-busting, the mayhem inflicted by product defects and toxics, the deep gap between the rich and the rest of America, corporate front groups, the media censorship and self-censorship, the profiteering, the pillaging overseas and more-- but it is also the impact on the reader that comes from aggregating evidence. Our country does not collect statistics on corporate crime the way it does on street crime. For it to do so would begin to highlight a little-attended agenda for law enforcement and other corporate reforms. Neither Congress nor the White House and its Justice Department have made any moves over the years to assemble from around the country the abuses of corporations in quantifiable format so as to drive policy

    metaphorical genius...


    this needs to be read...by all that come through
