    Some of my brothers have-
    withdrawn from the process
    indulged in excessive excess
    betrayed their families,
    condemned their posterity
    disregarded their manhood
    decimated their neighborhoods
    sold poison to their bloodline
    to amass personal gold mines-

    Male & Black be the fettered majority
    in state penitentiaries
    but in colleges
    of higher learning
    the sure minority
    and not gaining.

    likely to rob their own
    disrespect their own
    kill their own
    then blame the man
    whilst weakening their own hand
    least likely to vote
    most likely to tote.

    Unorganized, disenfranchised &
    seldom radicalized.
    They've left the women of our clan
    to the mercies of the man
    shamelessly left the fight
    while the next generation
    bears the plight.

    Truthfully speaking I would-
    Yes I and I would!
    Take life from ni&&ers who
    bring terror to the 'hood
    stop them from painting
    the rest of us no good.
    These be parasites who don't
    even bother to come out no
    more at night,. hell naw!..they
    chuck it in broad day light..
    then the innocent bear the plight
    Die, I say die, that the rest of us may live!

    Whoa!

    I feel ya! But I fear ya sentiment...What happened to healing this broken world? Are we going to through the broken and damaged on the worlds trash heap? It must be the sign of the times...Wrote a piece this week about the same thing, hope you will read it "BLACK BANDITS". Keep on being real...That is what you do best. Strong sermons usually evoke much thought!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    I wish they would save us the trouble--this is a tuff piece and worth the read--need more thoughts like this on the subject--gangsterism is a recipe for genocide--loved it--Amun-Ra

    Rashad: Yes, there is anger here- and in my mind the turn around can only come through a spiritual revolution.

    Cocobutterskyn: Yes. prayer is a powerful weapon. This situation for sure needs prayer.

    msluc: You're correct. There must be healing, but if you think about what happens when a wound for instance heals- you'll see that death is the first step. The new skin will only appear after the old, torn, scarred skin is dead and peeled away. The death I speak of here is twofold. The poem does not, I admit, make that clear... but these brothers, and I say these, because I walk the talk by the grace of JAH- these brothers have to be born again. They have to die to what they now call themselves.

    Amun- I agree. In the words of Gil Scoot Heron- "they're pulling contracts for the man"

    Thanks all for reading the verse.

    JAH Love always.

    YOU ARE SO DEEP!

    Thanks for bringing clarity! I know you are right now that you put it that way...sometimes I feel the same way, but I never gave voice to it..."Like the voice crying in the wilderness...there comes another Greater than I"...Say on and Write on...Loving your flow
    however you go. I learn something more about you the person as I delve into your very deep and spirtual self!
    Thanks for sharing!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE ALWAYS!
