    most people know more about
    what's going on with Jen and Ben than they do
    about their own neighbors
    and with every OJ-Tyson-Kobe drama
    goes people's attention, like it's their own family
    magical, mystical qualities ascribed to those who
    have done nothing more than act in a movie or sing a song
    people believe celebrities must be special
    so strongly that they elect them politicians
    regard them as super-human beings
    try to be like them
    all the while not realizing those famous people
    are no better than themselves
    in this country
    they fall for the myth

    (foxylady)
    Teachers are not being paid for the most important job in the world
    Teaching and working with every boy and girl
    Brightening minds trying to invent a new world
    Teaching
    Adding
    Subtracting
    Multiplying
    Dividing
    Doing all that plus breaking up students that be fighting
    It's hard but still they continue writing
    And studying
    New methods that encourage us to keep flying
    No height is too high in the mind of that teacher so they continue guiding
    Trying to treat every student they same........as they keep binding
    But they know they can not, for it's always a student in the class that need a little more guiding
    However, somehow, they have grown so fed up somewhere along the way they stopped being inspired
    Stopped wanting to help the ones that needed that help and required
    A less sense of responsibility and desire
    That same sense that was a flamin
    like a blazin
    fire
    And stopped encouraging others to do in this profession because of the money so less are being hired
    Many have retired
    Less are there to teach our children and this has transpired
    Into a world of uninspired youth that does not want to go any higher
    FED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    before sister Anita Hill stood up 12 years ago and told it,
    it was not spoken
    the comments, the jeers, the intimidation
    cloaked in power, stamped with validation and
    given the strength to live
    fast forward to today and it still doesn't seem to matter
    what men do
    whether they've groped, fondled, assaulted, touched, hurt, ruined
    they get the job, promotion, opportunity, advancement
    but never
    the punishment
    I am tired of the message that women don't matter
    that it should all roll off our backs
    that we're not important enough to listen to
    and we're only here for sex anyway
    men, they don't get fouled like that

    (foxylady)
    Bad Boy, Def Jam, G-Unit, and Rocafella
    All in it for the money and gurls that's high yella
    Getting all the women/gurls from the east, west, north, and south
    Don't matter how old as long as tha gurl knows how to work that mouth
    Got a little booty and and know how to shake it to get them off
    The youngest of the young they have on their videos diluting their bodies
    Got them poor gurl rubbing all on them to show who tha hottest
    And they let them too
    Know even caring if their mothers knew
    The teen gurls want to do it, it's true
    But where's these record labels morals to help get these teens through
    How can they just let a lil shorty do that to her body just to make it through?
    When they're the ones who
    0f any can help them gurlies make due
    Tight skirts
    Fit just right in the right places but it makes her mother's heart hurt
    Exchanging numbers in the club with a rapper doing dirt
    Rapper sleeps with teen nutz gettin hard before they even start to flirt
    Mind of that teen gettin pulled in so much it sometymes make me hurt
    But I guess it just got to be this way.......I guess what I'm still tryin to say is I'm FED UP!!!!!!!

    (gempis)
    these days it's too much trouble
    for people to brandish a smile and a bit of caring
    to take even a moment to slow down and see
    that what they're doing will effect
    the one standing next to them
    it is easy to be rude
    to keep looking straight ahead
    so when someone is finally friendly
    it's a shock, most unexpected
    then there's those who don't appreciate
    like the customer who gets to the grocery store
    register and doesn't say hello back to the checker
    why has love been kicked to the curb
    how did warm faces vanish into thin air
    what happened

    (foxylady)
    Somehow along the way we acquired Bush
    Who into office he cheated and pushed
    And now we have a new president
    In the white house is his resident
    Because our old and good president
    Clinton came and went
    Bush started a war within his first year
    Because he SAYS of the September 11th fear
    So with the country he moved to second gear
    Compiling soldier after soldier.......killing people who were unaware
    The innocent people over there
    Who had no food or shelter and could have a less care
    Of who was fighting who.....food was their only fear
    Because they feared if the next day they were even going to be there
    Now sure he throw them scraps just to say he shared
    And to say that he was fair
    But the problem is he stopped when he got scared
    That it was going to turn into a war........and it was declared
    Another problem was it was rumored that he only got into war because they cut off the oil over there
    Now is it me.......or does this seem unfair
    That he would kill all those people just so the country could become a billionaire
    Punishment should be solitaire
    FED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was just dropping in to take a peek...and whatta ya know...
    Gempis and Foxy? Oh my....I had to take a minute and read this!
    and believe me it was worth it...
    Gempis..you know I got maaad love for you and Foxy...my lil' sister
    forever...the most deeply conscious young woman I know...:wink:

    You guys left no stone unturned with issues that plague our society

    Lack of concern for our neighbors, Sexism, Discrimination, Corrupt
    business and politics...War...it's all so sad...But this piece is a beacon
    of truth, the more we expose and talk about it...the more conscious
    we become...the more compelled we become to make a difference.

    :toast: Two of my favorite poets...scribing "Truth"...(Loved it!)
