Jehovah’s Witness Effect Let’s have a rational conversation You and I About this stern consternation I have applied Everything ever forementioned On my part Let’s set aside Deal in common sense And let it ride… Good evening how are you doing? How ‘bout your self? Family doing well? We’re doing fine If nothing else. How can I help you? I got some some questions. Question on Don’t take too long. About what? About these social Rights and wrongs. I don’t have time To be talking politics So I remit On entertaining your perspective Cause it won’t change s---- Just trying to get my foot Anywhere I can fit it So if you looking for support You can forget it. Bruh, sister, mister That is my case and point We’re too dried up with complacency So let me annoint Refreshing life lessons Learned not too long ago Because our children Will bear the load If we don’t pave these roads. Like I said before You just wasting time Ain’t nothing you can tell me Is gon’ change my mind Cause for the basics All you need is an education Then you can go for self Within this wealthy nation My kids will be alright They got a college fund They got a certain sum Of bonds Won’t have a need for guns I got a house so I’m invested So I don’ done my part What you really need to do Is give your kids a start So I’mma be alright No need to ask for more You know the deal So get for real That’s what the dream was for Sorry brother If you allow me Let me disagree The dream was more Than intergration Peace And unity It went beyond A house A car And steady bank account Well beyond a status quo And who you profess to know Remember Martin Malcolm Biko Garvey And Hewey Newt’ Lumumba Ghandi Yashua And Marley too? Remember the countless Civil rights that this country Constantly abuse? And not too long ago Remember slavery dude? Not to cut you off I just don’ heard it all That **** horse is dead And you hurt my head down to my balls You sound like them black muslims Who don’t believe in God And worse They believe just like that cat Bin Laden All you need to do is get yourself a job Do you own thang Work hard young man –impress your boss Get in with them good And get up out the hood Once you learn to play the game They’ll see you understood Cause ******* ain’t gon’ do nothing But hold you down When it’s time for action No one comes around I had my chance to bat But I don’ passed the hat Cause in this time and day I’m just too old for that But this here I will tell you So we can cut it short I hear some of that -which you saying And take it to heart But maginally So pardon me If we can’t come to terms You ask too much of a brother Who has never learned About my true history Degrees of my beliefs Political agendas That may prove detrimental To you and me But see I’ll leave it to my kids To pick and choose To what degree What path to take With the knowledge You feel so pressed to Press on me So let me go now On my way So you can continue Your task Of enlightening every joe On the street you might pass And when you see me Kindly speak Don’t even stop and ask Cause I’m Struggling trying to juggle My way… Into the “middle class” Disappointed like Jehovah Witnesses I witnessed the dis-jointed How could the natural Fall to mystic An indifference pre-appointed From systematic living And all of its components Left me puzzled Confused And disgruntled ….hey, excuse me sister –can I get a minute!?!
