    I don't do memorization.​
    It's just not in my characterization;​
    I leave space on my hard drive​
    for morning devotions and​
    minute by minute revelations.​
    I do eclectic ruminations​
    run on mitochnodrial applications​
    regurgitated as verbal representations-​
    Sh*t...​
    I'm a walking talking heat seeking​
    modern day type John the Baptist sensation/​
    Seriously..​
    I could be the reincarnation​
    of that famed son of Sam​
    doing differing versions of-​
    Slam bam, why, thank you ma'am!​
    Don't bother testing me​
    I'll will split your atom G!​
    Pay rapt inattention cause this​
    ain't designed to give an education.​
    I couldn't tell you a damned thing​
    you don't already know-​
    I'm just busting thought hydrants​
    so we could all flow-​
    a lyricist willing to eat crow;​
    the resuscitation of that there Killah Joe/​
    Yeah.. I know you know​
    Life ain't no rabbit pulled out​
    of a hat trick-​
    but it's dominated by sex, violence and religion;​
    Don't look at me askance!​
    We're all at this cosmic dance,​
    feeling to a person that there's​
    something we can't quite put a finger on​
    in these accounts of Adam, Eve, Allah, Vishnu, Osiris-​
    and the various versions of the ones called God's son-​
    And no, I didn't leave the sex​
    and violence out, ​
    they are the backbone of every sacred text, go check!​
    Pick your poison,​
    cause the sun will go down-​
    and whatever else happens there will be​
    need for redemption-​
    Who knows? This may be a tale spun​
    in allegorical threads never done.​
    As a consequence I keep my drive fragmented,​
    augmented, demented, even decimated-​
    refusing to be formatted,​
    or be that fly that's swatted-​
    off the walls of thought someone-else plotted-​
    I AM the image of - thus my cipher cannot be spotted;​
    I am the resurrection and the life-​
    I have to be, cause I was dead before I was manifested as me,​
    you, you, you and thee!​
    I am like fruit trodden that expends​
    the energies of new wine, ​
    yet still and forever attached to the true vine.​
    My substance never rots cause I am the seed​
    of the universal begotten,​
    the rays of my beams may sometimes wander​
    but the source code is never forgotten.​
    I am Killah Joe; ​
    arrested without reason,​
    tried in every season,​
    but found innocent of all charges,​
    for I have been heaven sent!​
    ...to be cont'd​

    KILLAH JOE! is epic in proportion and demonstrates the depth of your poetic chops. WELL DONE, poet.

    Hey, thanks 1poetsought. Killa Joe, is a little something, something, I'm working on - trying to iron him out as an alter ego I can use in my work. Thanks for checking him out.
