    Feet are still smoldering from
    walking "We shall overcome" journeys
    ...to become "Uncullard"...no
    mo' Cullard drinking fountains,
    back doors, back of busses...been to
    the top mountain with martin and back
    just...to be considered black...not "Cullard"
    ...Okay I dig this...and since it be dug
    why is the NAA"Cullard"P still calling itself
    that...we have "decolorfied" most of
    the B.S. So...what's up with that?

    anyway that was a mental aside here's
    the piece

    Right now "WE" be, 1b
    instead of number one in crosshairs
    of America's guns...oh no is this another one
    of those 'fuss about the government joynts?"
    ...ya **** right..."WE" be 1b cause
    1a are all middle eastern folks..."WE" didn't
    put you there it was those that are endeared
    ...new millenium pilgrims...whose thanks"taking"
    dinner has us as a side dish now...see, the apples been
    reserved for the brothers in turbans...ya'll didn't know?
    they started eating early that's why they avoided the
    conference in Durban...
    but "WE" be 1b and I can only presume that those
    that wave flags will begin to march cause we
    lost ground...let's start a new "affirmative action"
    yeah, it sounds absurd but so does blak folks
    waving flags unless you "sleep wave" and folks
    really don't realize what they're doing...so for
    all of ya'll that are "WIDE AWAKE" wake they
    a...s...s up...but see, "Cullard greens" will do that to you

    and I don't eat no "Cullard greens" cause they make you
    do weird things

    and I would eat some Rice and Powell
    Long Grain and Fowl
    while catching foul balls
    as long as the chicken's name wasn't george
    and my mitt was big enough /
    but I wouldn't sit down and eat with the
    "C.C. Twins" Condolezza and Colin
    cause I think they be eating "Cullard greens"
    that would have me cleaning my Colon every
    five minutes from getting sick
    off the Bull "manure" they be trying to feed
    me...cause they are as flagwaving as
    one can get...selective memory will
    have you fill any position even if
    the position is bent over and "massuh feels
    good"...

    we be 1b, currently, and if you don't stand for your's
    we'll be back in slavery minus the shackles...then again
    have we really left that state..."of mind"

    (If you eat too many "Cullard Greens" chances of
    you being lynched are increased, getting lost in the struggle
    are increased, caught in the wrong neighborhood increased,
    dating your historical enemy increased, compromising
    who you are in the face of "niggayourplaceishere" situations,
    and the stepin' fetchit will become your most favorite
    dance)

    WE be 1b and when Sam decides he wants to
    end this "War on Colored People" WE be 1a
    like we were yesterday aka September 10...


    (c)2001 blakverb

    * I pray that you are all watching the developments behind the developments...the so called constitution is being attacked on the daily and violated by many in governmental power..after a while if your
    s...h...it smells a certain way you will be detained.

    Ain't got much if any use for the NAA"Cullud"P myself. But I do be admiring C&C.
    As always, you press my political buttons with your art and your thought. Thanks.

    you hit me in the head

    man this was good
    and if a black person
    makes it that far
    it's to keep the status
    quo
    it's not like they will
    use their power to uplift

    ya know
    cause if they did they would not be in their present position

    as i stand on the podium...

    head bowed
    fist raised high
    i search the thought process
    for meaning to
    WHY
    it's necessary for
    people like you
    TO BE.

    then you remind me
    with the pieces of
    your dream.

    THANKS, Blak. {My lyrical Verb slinging brutha}

    To my peeps...

    These replies that you have left are some of the deepest yet, at least to me. I stand head bowed in thanks for your valuable words. They help keep this brother's mind working and pen writing. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what's in my dome and when it's is released I pray that you all feel me, because like all of you what i write is from the heart. Ya'll keep scribin' cause YOUR flows and vibes are what writing is about.
