    It will be a crucial conflict
    When the wind meets the abyss
    Hay! I'm talking to the soul of the Midwest-you dig!
    Unity from the 'Go to the Mathaland
    Together we building this bridge
    Forever till our seeds are Free.

    Chicago!Chicago! are ya ready for War
    Afrika!Afrika! are ya ready for War
    We gat a job to do before Babylon Fall
    From the Sears Tower to The Great Pyramids
    We rebuilding the canals for Exodus
    Me and You! Unity you dig.

    Like the soul of Cabrini
    Like the heart of slums and villages
    We shall overcome even though we stumble
    Even much so we are humble
    With a venom potent like the soulz of Black folk.
    Talking to the lions of Chicago.


    An ode to CHICAGO.....
