    (Inspired by Inque's title of his poem Militia Man, haven't even read the poem yet. Mad props for that title, it just sparked some thoughts)

    Here I am, a militia man.

    I stomp the streets as I struggle for the BLACK.
    I stomp harder when my brothers say I'm WHACK.

    I claim black even though some call me BROWN.
    Sheei' I'm divinely blessed and don't need you to tell me I'm DOWN.

    You don't have to respect me, but respect the CAUSE.
    'cuz all who struggle in our name deserve an APPLAUSE.

    So here I stand, a fist-raised proud milita MAN.
    Ready to make the white man realize he's GOD [email protected]!

    Your time is over, your time is THRU!
    With my third eye finally open, at last I see YOU.

    I love my life, but my I love my people MORE!
    If I die - no doubt it will be you I die FOR.

    They should'a never angered the Afrikan LION.
    There's no way they can stop us now that we're TRYIN'.

    So say my name like you know what it MEANS.
    And take up your intellectual arms so we can exterminate these FIENDS.

    Kiss your loved ones, and tell'em you LOVE'EM.
    And that if you're gone tomorrow, is 'cause you placed no one ABOVE'EM.

    ASE!
