    beckwith
    killed Medgar
    but not his soul
    and for Ever(s) his story will
    be told
    James Earl Ray
    Killed Martin Luther King
    (or so they say)
    if he did was he alone?
    or did he find the blueprints
    to Martin's footprints laying
    under the front door mat
    of the White House?
    And Malcolm
    the X that marked the spot
    to "...by any means necessary"
    was gunned down by
    .......................................................brothers?
    brothers ?..............Bro...thers..........
    brother's still dying at the hands of brothers
    has me more perplexed than any hanging
    from the deadwood tree......brothers
    hanging on corners with nick names
    hate names slave names of De la....
    De LA...De la beckwith....Earl Ray...
    Earl Ray........the brothers/the unbrothers/
    the brothers that smother our struggle
    in crack smoke crack pipe painted in red...white...and
    "keeping us blue" blue....
    where did the MIND get lost?
    bumping heads on crack rocks
    on the cracked blocks
    where viles choke smiles
    releasing screams from the middle passage
    meta morphosis changing names to
    *** *** ins....De la ....De la... De la Ray
    delays the rise of a diasporas
    inner peace / inner......peace
    piece of mind.....lost at see...or
    what is not seen in the mirror.......
    blak personified.....tears petrified
    falling clanging a twisted tune
    of pain that crucifies the spirit
    with one strike of the chords
    dissecting the vocal cords of the
    third eye and thoughts
    are left voiceless.....
    de la de la SOULLESS
    anti-brothers are hanging us
    leaving pot holes in
    the soul.

    WORD...

    i understand
    that the white man
    is afraid of us
    intimidated by us
    so
    he tries to eliminate us
    BUT...US

    i don't understand
    why we
    just trying to be free
    try so hard to be like he
    who wants to kill
    all of WE.

    how can that be?

    so many TRUTHS, Blak.

    let the river flow.

    Very Nice Blak

    You know I was thinking about this this morning. I was thinking we are some good salesman/saleswomen. To each other.

    It's just that the product is wrong, illegal, and of course in high demand. The product is to die for, murder for run and get your income for. What happened to the day when a black man would come down the street selling fruit on his cart he pushed? Waking me on cold mornings screaming COAL MAN! See as we approached the technology revolution, we lost sight during the evolution. We could use a lesson from the Mormans. It may be a solution. Move thru this thing and don't worry about standing. Pressures of being accepted can be so demanding. Only if you care and are shallow thinking. Needing acceptance from those that don't matter!

    that line about tears falling down creating a tune of pain was amazing.
