    Gasping for air
    As mounds of dirt is thrown over me
    The grime of
    Deceit
    Deception
    Falsehoods
    Lies
    Tall tales
    Smothering me
    Can’t breathe
    Soon I will black out
    From lack of oxygen
    And die
    Buried Alive
    Under layers
    Of countless conspiracies
    From the assassinations
    Of
    JFK and MLK
    Vietnam
    Desert Storm
    Bin Laden
    Now Iraq
    Buried Alive
    Can get free
    State of the Union deceit
    Claims of evidence
    That took to long to bring to light
    Unless that time needed to fabricate
    Hey by the way
    Is Bin Laden still the prey?
    Or did he just fade away
    Focus on Saddam
    And a war we trying to jumpstart
    Maybe before all the cards are on the table hmmmm
    Meanwhile
    I’m suffocating
    Under mountains
    Of lies and half-truths
    Not knowing what to believe
    But can’t help but noticed
    This trend
    Check your history see how it plays out
    Republicans start wars
    Democrats end them
    Why are we so surprised that this is happening
    Because we can’t see
    Cause we’re covered under all this double talk
    And can’t see
    Tied down
    Can’t move
    Can’t breathe
    Trapped
    Dying
    Buried Alive

    Very Good

    Again, as I was telling Ashanta, I am making an effort
    to read poetry from various foreign countries under
    cases of repression and oppression. It's rather hard
    when all of their forms of communication won't download
    to my computer. The Alta Vista Babel translator is available
    to interpret any foreign language yet the document has to
    download inorder for their work to be interpreted.

    The main problem is a breakdown in our ability in between
    nations to communicate with one another. We need to bridge
    the gap in between us and disarm all weapons of mass destruction and develop weapons of warfare that restrain rather than destroy so that our enemy will live to see another day so we
    can open these issues for discussion. Defacing just about all
    four corners of the earth doesn't resolve anything.

    We need to learn how to agree to disagree on various issues
    without trying to taking someone else's life because they have
    a different point of view.

    WORLDPEACE
