The West...Africa that is my birthplace where life really begins/ at the roots of life's tree/ trunk and leaves nourished in Detroit/ Motor City...United States of America not so united/high melanin counts slighted but I have earned the right to ask/ though the whip lashes and tossed overboard mothers and fathers whose screams I hear nightly...whose dreams I carry in my mental womb beyond their Atlantic tomb... I have earned the right to ask for being the subject of lynchings and beatings from police lights that flash from back door servitude and the raping of my mothers and sisters by massuh and his descendants for destroying our sense of self and psychologically making us dependant on a system that is systematically set up to destroy us so I have earned the right to ask via your CON stitution that says I have freedom of speech/even though speaking freely can land you in jail...I have earned the right when you gave me my other two-fifths by your law, when God already created me as man in his likeness you've been sinning from the beginning since Jamestown and hulls of hate ships to economically ignoring the poor while doling out funds and guns to Afganistan to carry out Russian assassination hits so I have earned the right to ask Why does common sense not apply to you? 9/11 propaganda ploys and mental tinkering built on Uncle Sam's plans to pillage oil from Iraq on the "WTC casualties of economic wars" backs no survivors of three planes yet definitive photos of terrorists...which justice system in this country would support this convicting of criminals with no witnesses? knowledge before hand yet sitting with hands over your eyes makes you complicit to the attacks/ receiving photos from Saudi Arabian bedmates after the fact/creates mass confusion and suspicion 400 billion dollar defense budget that can detect a conversation anywhere in this nation can't detect terrorists alledgedly in this country planning to jack airplanes with box cutters (?) Freezing flights yet ushering out a privileged few/what should a people do? Question...authority///but fear of reprisal confines the "most free" tongue so those whose minds can see put on blindfolds and freedoms song is no longer sung civil liberties raped/haliburton no-bid contract billion dollar escape/and Cheney's wearing Dickies and George's hiding in Bushs/are listening to stock skyrocket red blaring/and the bombs bursting until the Constitution don't mean a **** thing and privacy is beheaded/ then force fed with fear down the throats of constituents/ constipating the thinking backing up common sense and the natural nature to question the questionable like How could Dan Rather find Saddam for an interview when he could easily evade you? the master of stealth operations and deceit conquering the world with the air of Western Hegemonic Conceit... toppling statues and purple fingers can't cloud the "free" mind open eyes can read between lines of State of the Union Addresses and lies... the war is all about oil, not democracy, about economics and hypocrisy led by a "self anointed" prophet with eternal prophesy devil in a blue suit and a power tie/ red, the color of the blood of soliders auctioned off for dead presidents and black gold covered handshakes that secure promises of market control in the Middle East so I have earned the right to ask and speak what the **** is on my mind even if it gets me killed...
