    We need you to
    We need u to come back forward
    Sorted in to the mollified mysteries of missing links
    Between
    Cotton fields and killing fields
    Our brothas need rebuilding

    Whether they been
    Burned out in cubicles or burned up on blocks
    Whether they
    Pushing pencils or pushing rocks
    They done tried to go from capital to capitalist
    But it wasn’t enough action in their auction
    So they been
    Walking into prisons like roach motels
    And the prison industrial complex done eliminated
    The division between slave quarters and cells
    And look at em!!

    Sittin there still thinking this a white mans world
    When his cell mate is white
    And his cell mate is thinking
    If we can just get rid of these niigga,s
    I could economically improve my trailer park life
    Become and father to my children
    and a husband to my wife
    he has yet to figure that he's just a flesh colored niiggaa
    who cant even afford the luxury of being white


    Both of them of them sitting there
    Blaming each other
    Live in the same cell
    Living the same life

    Mean while the Net
    Is destroying the minds of young men
    The N.E.T
    NIIGGA ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION
    Constantly broadcasting the crippling passions
    Of the average young population
    Showing video’s and shows that make 70’s
    Black exportation flick’s seem like the works of August Wilson

    That’s why I need to have daughters
    To give Ida B Wells ,Harriet Tubman and Queen mother Moore
    The opportunity to come back forward
    I tell him
    He says he cant get pass her breast her asssss
    But u got to make’em
    Take em under your wings
    Make them rise
    Make em understand
    That heaven between your thighs
    Cant compare to the salvation that’s behind your eyes

    Revolution
    Revolutionary negotiation
    He cant get wet if he cant get wise
    Remind him of the late 19th century
    In southern reconstruction,
    When black women made a pact not to touch him if he wasn’t about noting
    And what happen then
    Brothas couldn’t smoke sess on corners
    cause they was to busy smoking sessions in congress

    But in this millennium
    The next could have Malcolm x
    Some where taking a swig of a 40 oz
    of a malt liquor called black death
    Talking bout “ dammnnn that build board was right !!...this syhit here do put hair on a moafucka chest”
    tell them u aint impressed

    he can go home and fell his on dammnnn chest
    if he cant take kids then he cant take sex
    Like Fredrick Douglas.”No struggle no progress”
    You cant process his request until he stop confusing his man hood with his baguettes
    tell him to tuck in them platinum chains and put out some self respect
    Throwing up gang signs like some body paying him over time
    Grown assss* man got to run like a biitch ever time the police comes
    Because he calls himself a playa …now your son wanna be one

    Tell him cost of towns and the community is building
    And our children simply cant afford it
    Tell his backward assss to play the bottom until hE's up and ready to
    Come
    Back
    forward,,........sistas help your brotha's and brothas help yourself...hookup...u may clap now...lol :dj:

    Wow...
    It's difficult to pick out my favorite verses, but this one really stood out. The whites, as a group, have the economic power, yet they're still blaming us, should tell us something, huh? Thought provoking scribe brotha, much truth in this. Flow on, bravo.

    In a world…of

    so few prophets, so few griots, so few Gods…so few, so few...so few
    but then…there’s You
    and in this…I am a believer in hope, in life, in love…with love, loving my faith
    in you…

    Baby…You is the realist!

    A Prodigous Production....

    as the saying goes, this sort of insight and wisdom does not come without having walked in John's shoes, so I know you bring this manuscript of what is right and what is wrong from eyes that have seen it all and hands that have born the fall of those you warn

    This is poetry written, and NOT in vain :star:
