    I'm oozing with secrets that the witch has been brewing
    A gaseous fume emits from my mouth moving
    A green laser shoots from my third eye lumens
    Tears spew from my two eyes boo-hooing
    I lift the cover from the brother in the dark
    and I point and say "Behold the light...
    the only light, the holy light, the smoldering light."
    feeling like Booker T.
    with a book of breathing scrolls
    Eve concieved Adam believed
    Abel agreed and Kain made him bleed
    we've been hoodwinked and bamboozled
    we never got emancipated or even schooled
    we were taught useless and hung on nooses
    told stories about Zeuses fed pigs and mutants
    No truces because he will have you saying Et Tu Brutus
    while I cough up mucous, some wish it was blood
    this has been declared a White World and he is the judge
    until you are appointed ruler or controller of Medullas
    then who do you groom with that rusty silver spoon
    this world is built on hate and PH balanced by love
    some men died great, other perished unheard of
    in between you have those taken for granted
    is this the way fate planned it
    or am I handed this barcode to scan it
    I should learn to speak a spanish
    because I can barely understand it
    and it's almost 2012 and all hell is landing
    I try to load my ship and command it
    but, everyone is a **** captain
    so, I fall back like a skipper and go 'man the hatchet'
    we almost hit an iceberg like the Titanic
    causing major damage and this caused me to panic
    so, it's mutiny on board 'we're taking over' like Khalid
    and Going Back To Africa while my passport is valid
    so, sip from my chalice and sup with the fam
    and I each one will teach one do you over, understand
    Land​

    yea the oncoming onslaught

    2012 that year that people speak of

    boy isn't 2011 going to be very interesting

    is 2012 the climax

    it sure does feel like it right

    with all the build up around you

    i know i feel it here in NY especially in BK

    it's a big push

    things are doubling up and an accelerated rate

    you know the to and fro/back and forth

    something got to give

    and i wish going to africa could/would be the cure-all


    peace poet

    this work had such strength man

    you've been on fire mane

    proshate the luv

    ya'll jus don't kno how i appreciate your remarks and feedback. this piece is a warning to scribes and poets alike about the oncoming dangers of this changing world and the urgency to get in where you fit in. a lot of us are on a "high" from life and it's many sharp turns and falling rocks. our paths should be straight (not narrow). just straight. from one place to the next. that's how "they" operate. they came from caves to slaves to friends to foes to merchants of clothes to killers and conquerors to dealers to stealers no cures they just heal us and stick us again. So, i unwrap mummies with a pen and stay away from the pen. Because my father, brother, and my cousins are in doing **** near ten. then again, who's to say we are free. LAND

    The structure of this piece, and the wordplay is off the hook. But more importantly the message...yes, when it all comes to a head, how will it ll affect us. Are we any where near ready? Keep those scribes coming.
