    Our children and loved ones are traced in chalk
    And, yes, the outline will fade
    But the concrete continues to bleed

    Our subconscious minds are fed degrading images
    And lyrical enslaving signs
    Nobody wants to read

    Our frontal cerebral hemispheres
    Are inundated with flashes of past horrors
    Present dangers and future doom
    Nobody wants to heed

    Our men and women
    Are psychically conditioned to discount
    Disregard, and trivialize their seed

    Our communities are decimated and stripped bare
    Because we allow the indigenous piranhas and parasites to feed

    Nothing is encouraged to blossom and grow
    Why, Mother Nature herself is crippled and ravaged
    Because urine and debris will choke out even a weed

    Our Black dollars make others richer
    Because we BUY just what we want
    And we remain poor
    While we BEG for what we need

    Everybody wants a REVOLUTION
    But nobody wants to lead...

    Thank you both, Brother Rick and Sister Candeesweet!

    Yes, I think we have all been guilty of this "indictment" at some point or another.

    I am flattered by your praise, Sister; but that pleasure is bittersweet for I wish my words were not so accurately descriptive of the subject.

    Thank you, Bro. Rich.....But, this "reality" is far from "blissful."

    No, THANK YOU!....If any of my words were to initiate a "wake-up," that is the greatest satisfaction.

    Thank you, Sister.

    Yes, truly, the "SIGNS" are out here before our eyes every day.
