    It's time to cancel the commercial
    holidays...your valentine days and
    sweetest days...and hatred in disguise
    holidays...your "thanks'taking" day...
    and your "it didn't apply to us" helliday...
    your "j(U)- lie the fourth" sin-
    dependence day...we were still
    in chains singing freedumb songs
    accapella...while massuh was
    dancing in the slave quarters
    (ya'll get my meaning)...

    the new holiday is "raise your fist day"
    and on this day all blak folks - real -
    blak folks, not you OJ simpson types.
    raise their fist at the same
    time ,shatter the blue sky and
    release the songs of our ancestors.
    Let them come on down
    satisfy our souls and cut the spirits
    of our "soul-ppressors" so they
    can't see their future and we'll
    chance them into an unknown
    tomorrow that scares the ****
    out of them..tell 'em the boogieman's
    gone get 'em...cause we can boogie, man
    God gave us the rhythm...so we got's
    to dance during this celebration
    (DO NOT USE B.E.T AS A REFERENCE)

    we got's to raise our fist and
    hug our kids / tell 'em we love 'em/
    save 'em from doing bids/
    this is a solidarity holiday/ a come together
    forever day/ a "if you gone
    harass our people, we gone start some
    **** up in here" day/ a blak love day/
    just because your my sister or
    brother day/ a

    real holiday.

    So raise yo' fist!

    I now raise my fist with a higher consciousness

    your work is most
    consciously sophisticated
    and enlightening
    I can truly say...
    the revolution has not ended
    it's just beginning...
    and I must agree with Positive
    this is reminiscent of Baraka...

    I now raise my fist with a higher consciousness

    Fam,

    Thanks for the love. Positive and Angelic, reminiscent of Baraka? For me that is the utmost compliment as I am a studier of his work. Thank you.
