    "Monsters of War"


    I wrote the following poem after making a cosmic connection with spiritual forces in the universe:

    Monsters of War
    Visions of flame
    Metal Monsters Multiply
    Driving people insane

    Glutinous Greed
    Eating avariciously loud
    Destroying hopes and dreams
    With the nerve to be proud

    The world will be shocked
    When destruction comes around
    Brace yourself firmly
    For the final Countdown

    Rapacious behavior flourishes
    Because of a citizenry of stillness
    Victors call it a magnificent conquest
    I call it a severe form of *MENTAL ILLNESS.*

    Here is one that I wrote entitled:

    "Strategy for a Tragedy."

    Terrorism, which is killing by fanatics.
    Evoke memories, of this country's tactics.
    Political Representation, which drags its feet.
    Burnings and lynchings occuring, I see no retreat.

    Racist lynchings occur, in this country's jails.
    African Americans, still in hell.
    Young people's rights, are being ignored.
    Some leaders are tantamount, to being whores.

    Is this a set-up, some people ask?
    Yes its a set-up, and it has worked in the past.
    Economic lynching, has always existed.
    Minds of Americans, appear to be twisted.

    Dead heroes, who turn in their graves.
    Their deaths cries out: "CEASE BEING SLAVES."
    It's no wonder, leaders are scared.
    Cowardice of a plurality, is being fervently shared.

    Sellouts tell us: Sit and wait.
    America is ready to negotiate.
    Give ignorance a rest.
    Start by doing your earthly best.

    Forget about the strategy, in the past.
    You can learn from it, but now we have a new cast.
    RACISM is evil, in its purest form.
    Negotiate with evil, will you ever learn?

    Does working for yourself, mean anything.
    Being fed by your enemy, destroys the brain.
    Negative thinking, is prejudice against yourself.
    Educating your minds, is the healing that helps.

    I leave you this message in the hope that you will see.
    It's time to CHANGE our strategy and quit asking to be free.
    We must depend on ourselves to make a real change.
    Amerikkka has very little kindness, because the leaders are INSANE!
