    One more time,
    they're tryin-a seduce me
    with news flashes
    specifically designed to fool me,
    enrage or spook me-
    into a buying,
    hording frenzy.
    But I refuse to enlist in mass hysteria,
    refuse to submit to techno-engineered propaganda,
    fresh off the plate of Washington power brokers.

    The scribes and Pharisees have come again,
    branding those who refuse to jump
    on board their choo choo train,
    but this time around the accusers of the brethren
    will be the slain-

    I pick martyrdom over fiefdom any day.

    Why should we believe them this time around?
    All the other times we found out after the fact
    that we were the paying clowns!
    Who's to say this response ain't part of a
    well choreographed act?
    If this observation seems cruel
    you must-a got your 40 acres & a mule!
    I'm done with being capitalism's tool,
    I refuse to go to war and die
    then have politicians eulogize my corpse with lies!
    Mama didn't raise no fool!

    I pick martydom over fiefdom anyday!!

    the o ke doke {once}
    they won't get me again

    SEDUCED



    You betta say it

    this is

    a most provocative piece ~ and contrary to the opinion of some....I enjoy, encourage, and engage in conscious-raising, controversial, out-tha-box thinking...status quo can't help us no mo. (never could)

    Speak the truth ~ those who have ears shall hear.

    to eyes that see.

    epiphany, I appreciate the listening ear. Thanks

    alyce, I praise JAH for your mindset. It is easier to swim with, as opposed to, against the tide. I swing these lyrics with no regard for popular acceptance- In any case, the majority has been wrong more times not.
    JAH Love.

    cocobuttereskyn, thanks for reading the verse. No, a fool I won't be.
