    All of you down there standing on the
    glass ceiling / at the top rung /
    looking at those that are downpressed
    depressed and waiting for redress
    for the wrongs done by this CONtry
    to US/JUST
    for those of you watching on television
    don't touch that dial you are about to witness
    the greatest demonstration to combat the
    demon of all time..........................................
    this institution called "Am ERICA"
    it is time for her to die/it is time for
    her thoughts to die/ it is time for
    her.........symbolism....2 die.........................
    no more lies from the lips of this
    blind folded winch no more unbalanced scale
    in which as a blak man all the odds
    are stacked against me.....so before my time
    runs out before I'm attacked with "unsmart"
    bombs and Unlucky charms that hang
    around Sam's neck until emergency
    'til the button is pushed to annihilate
    ME.....here's to you.......

    blak and proud I stand in my
    last moments before my anti-birth
    my breath resounds a song so true
    that lies are nonexistent when I
    exhale and when I die this place
    will be ex-hell because my ascension
    will take me to an eternal dimension
    strictly spirit that resides within me
    yet released when my body is
    impeached by the president/when he
    pushes that button to kill me
    making more room for another resident
    on this earth/ I pray that they're not blak
    to exist in this Shyyyyyyyyt called
    demon-cracy/smoke and mirrors evolved into
    pseudo programs with revolving doors
    that pacify people with a pimps passion/
    I see what Malcolm saw when he held
    the M16 and the fire in his eye gleamed
    it was not a person it was the carrier
    of a die-sease called a "racist *** system"
    .....white or blak whoever was on
    the attack of blak people was/is the enemy
    self preservation is the game if it is not practiced
    we will all die as losers....stuck...stuck...
    finger stuck on this NEW clear bomb in my hand
    to blow away ignorance and bring clarity
    to our real existence...I will die for that...
    that's all folks.......

    BOOM!

    (Topping the news the statue of liberty was
    blown to bits by a group of Middle Eastern
    men...no group has claimed responsibility)

    and my spirits tell you everyone of color
    is subject to stereotyping til we all go deaf
    or we fight 'til there ain't nuthin' left but the
    TRUTH...

    DSSNY,

    My borther in the struggle, your vibe is parallel to mine. In regards to rhyming in a piece, I used to wirte that way a lot and had to force myself to do something different. Actually I add a lot of internal rhymes as opposed to end ryhmes. The things that I have with "end rhyming" included I haven't posted. And your point bro...gets across mos' def, I hear ya I hear ya.

    at a...

    ...complete loss for words.
    I had to delve:uzi: deep to salvage
    what was left of my ability
    to thoroughly clarify, just about,
    any piece of written word.
    *deep's an understatement*
