    From the Beginning of time it was,- The Red, Black and Green.
    The Color of Osiris, and his resurrected spleen
    Which we sometimes call the backbone of night, (the Milky way)
    Follow me as my words begin to take cosmic flight on this journey.
    Let your Ba rise like the Nile and Sirrus- universally
    Time to build godbodies w/ the Ankh as the key.
    The Red - is the desert, Black is Kem the soil-
    Then comes Green vegetation, --cook it in a pot to boil.
    No false preservatives added, this is killing us,
    FDA ain't REALLY fulfilling us, they are just grilling us.
    W/ unknown chemical by products, injected in livestock--
    You are what you eat, I'll pass on the ham hocks.
    What some call soul food, ain't really for the soul.
    Remember we are Nubians from the land of Gold.
    I ain't trying to preach, I'm doing this for free, can't you see
    Franz Fanon was right, we crave what the oppressors produce daily
    We praise and worship White culture than they do themselves ,
    Addicted to Eurocentric products, w/o gaining the wealth.
    Well I'm a broke a*s *****, I'ma keep this real.
    I write for the love of it, I'm too old for a record deal.
    If this wakes up one mind, --then my mission is done.
    My jewels are free people, like Ra's light shining for everyone.

    and i'm old enough to know that the company ran FDA is more about allowing money to be made than their concern for my health. so, i pull from the garden...take eggs from the hen house...do the pig killing day...and fill my smoke house that way.:) but, hey. there do be some thangs a brutha gotta go to the store for.:)

    This whole piece was a stunner of truth which we seem to not let go and come to reality
    to what's happening to our health
