    blue ink oozes these very words
    i try not to beleive that an extinction
    level event ain't in process, but my
    mind begs to differ
    with small crime laws stiffer than ever
    the government had to release hundreds
    of innocent brothas just to make
    room for the thousands filling their cages
    free mumia
    for that matter, free me
    the constitution should be called
    the black man's operation manual
    because everything in it applies to
    us and us only-
    it's already depleted sixty percent
    of my lifeforce, so i have no choice
    but to multiply during this
    52 week course
    when, even birth is circumspect
    since 1 in 4 babies dies of "causes unknown"
    among other synthetic defects
    when aids and the war on terrorism is
    full blown
    drugs are fillin the bellies of the next generation
    but i'm a hypocrit because caffeine is all that keeps
    my eyes open long enough to produce agitation
    among a nation of sleepwalking zombies
    stalkers of peace that roam thru valleys
    of disaster
    hoping their master can save them from
    evolution's sadness
    64 basketball games can't compare to the madness
    that takes place after black history month
