    brotha's with talent
    brotha's with wit-- some degrees
    brotha's with cornrows
    waves
    big biceps
    round succulent lips
    beautiful vibrant skin tones
    smiles that stimulate the dead

    brotha's with drive
    brotha's with substance
    brotha we need
    brotha's that cry on your shoulders
    massage your shoulders
    brotha's you once believed in....

    brotha's that be uncles, dads, pops &
    brotha's

    brotha's that can make a change
    brotha's that get lame
    brotha's that we now find shame to disclose we know

    brotha's that kill
    brotha's that steal
    brotha's that feel
    the world owes them something

    Brotha's that take the easy way
    brotha's that will take your life away --for about $32.50

    brotha's that say they love you
    then they use you
    abuse you
    confuse you
    mentally booze you
    with their clever ambitions

    brotha's that have given up
    have gotten caught up
    wrapped up
    locked up brotha's

    I'm listening $$RICH$$ and the message is on point.

    Great flow from you Mr Marion.
    From the board room, to the county jail. This flow speaks about the chains we wear, in life. How each is a burden, most of the time, some more than others. Either way something got a hold of you. List it here. What chains have a hold on you?

    CHAINS THAT CONTROL ME AND HOLD ME DOWN

    My chains are the need for employment. - This one i'm sure is everyone's. If I could break this chain. The power over me would be no more.

    I would be independant of needing another slave driving, lazy, incompetant boss or supervisor trying to act smart, looking dumb in the end. I have to depend on to make my income. I would be so successful I would scare WALL STREET TO DEATH! I would no longer have to take the BS dished out to me by my UN- Appreciative boss. That would be the last time I was the hero, and save his sorry butt. Because on many occasions I knew the other fools he looked like. Didn't have the knowledge and skill to do the job, or think on their feet. High paid, coffe machine hang arounds who couldn't work thru or around a problem.


    My chains are the unfinished business just outside my reach, the solutions always seem to be out among the rest of the system. Controlled by those that will not perform their jobs, or fullfill the reason for the job they hold to exist. Yet there is no help for me. - Like attorneys never help the poor. If I'm ripped off by the bank with unfair and illegal lending practices and charges I can't get into court thru the officer of the court. And he /she is not there for me the comman man.

    I'm gonna break these chains and look around because the others will be very clear after that. Thank you Marion for the call to arms.

    So many chains, those we see, those we can't, those we simply don't want to see. This was definitely an attention grabber, props on this well written vibe.
