    what can i say to make reader's
    scratch their heads and use their intellect?

    if i talk about how televeison daily disects the brain
    and uses 256 colors to get at yo mental
    then sews it back up
    with 256 embedded lies in omni color to despise
    brothas and trust blue eyes
    makin your speakers pump
    in 5.5 dolby surround sound
    will that create an itch?

    or if i speak on behalf of all
    the people in exile for ironically
    obeying the CONstitution
    but defying the institution
    of chrch and state
    by not following their plan
    or doing what they expect/seen by
    the notary public as a reject
    will that make u think?

    what if i ask about the multimillion
    dolla bottled water industry?
    is it me/or is anybody else curious as to why
    some can fill up recycled jugs with
    re-cycled montana tap water and call it puriefied/ or spring
    cause it stank

    if i say "eff da ho-lice" why will i be found
    in contempt of court, but chilren in
    atlanta and alabama dead, and they constantly find babies
    to abort, and they say that ain't called killin
    naw.......that ain't enough for u

    if i say that i feel like brothas are
    being used today to act like stepin fetchin to
    entertain the mainstream for so-called fame
    they call me a hayta cause i ain't gettin money like athletes-
    they may as well act like real minstrels and dress up in
    black face and steal chickens
    cause the mainstream gets a kick outta that too
    that still won't do

    ok.
    what if i repeat some of the FAQ's prevalent today?
    if i question why hypertension and hiv is mo
    prevalent in my favor than billyblueyes
    many claim to hate us
    but almost spontaneously combust from heat exhaustion
    or skin cancer cause the sun ain't gettin them dark enuff
    spending so much money on "instant tan"
    used to spend it on skateboards and ugly sneakas
    called jans
    now nike is the numba 1 brand among them and us.
    are u ready to bust?

    hmmm...

    this is an interesting piece...you bring up some questions that befuddle some minds. but only through asking the questions that no one wants to ask or seems to see, do we find the answers or solutions to overcome those questions. nice.

    anitaj: u r right. i've always been inquisitive tho'.
    i don't know why people don't ask......that's the only way we'll
    get an answer. maybe not the one u want, but an answer.
    thanx for readin me.
