    Greetings

    this is not the entire work
    from of my latest poem titled

    My Life © 2005 IAMWHOAM1959

    " what is reflected?
    In 13 year olds thinking booty calls
    Our laws
    Are now designed for pre-teen menaces -
    From pre-k to BA
    I was never suspended
    But what now is suspended
    Is the time
    That black males spend behind bars
    Charged
    With triple homicide
    I call it, Inverted genocide
    Which begs the question - Have the children
    Of Dubois, Truth and Garvey
    Lost all pride?
    I know we tried to incorporate
    The traditions of a people who worship the god of the night
    Their plight
    Stemming from an ice age evolution
    Their solutions are substitutions that we never should have accepted
    Thus we rejected
    Our ancient ways
    the people of the Nile
    And 10 thousand years of better days
    And mos def - our kings sold slaves
    For bottles of rum and gun powder they betrayed,
    And it took 500 years
    And over a billion tears
    And now we have become our ancestor’s greatest fear
    We took our kidnappers neurosis and angst to a higher level
    And Mr. Minister
    Its gonna take a lot more than calling white folks devils
    Or be a rebel with a ghetto fabulous cause
    And let the truth be known
    Long before Katrina,
    We let our own children starve
    to paraphrase a line from my poem
    This Aint Prophecy
    what hidden clause did we read
    that has us believing every trick thats up their sleeve
    whether brilliant, ****** up or ill concieved
    n 2001 Osama sent terror
    we beg and plead..."
