    there were two men
    that stood 10 feet tall in
    relation to the world and pulled
    out there symbolic dycks and
    pissed over on many countries,
    states, provinces, and ghettos
    and it was wondered how long
    they could look down their
    collective noses and blow snot
    on the short people
    covering all that weren't
    as lily white as them
    in a mixed pigment lavendar
    without offering Kleenex

    Well someone short
    became tired of inhumane
    blows from nasal passages
    and remembered the
    Lilliputians
    and brought the two giants
    down permanently

    the masses who thought they
    were as tall as the giants
    waved Kleenex and lit a
    cigarette to light the evening at 7
    the glow showed
    a sign of Unity as they
    were brainwashed with
    nicotine

    Some cried
    Some cheered
    Some died
    because of association
    while the bodies
    lay smoking

    and the block
    ain't the same no more
    and no one knows
    who tripped 'em

    (no matter how much
    people guess)

    You're right ... "the block ain't the same no more"...

    Those 'twin towers' weren't as high & mighty as many a folk thought!

    Your thought process is definitely cutting edge brotha, matter o' fact ~ it's off da chartz!


    Love & respect your CrEaTivItYYYYYYYY !! :D
    This piece deserves a "10" cause you're a heavy hitter!

    One Luv

    I swing a big stick :), I guess that makes me a heavy hitter. I'm trippin' thanks queen for the props you know I appreciates it. From a scribe such as yourself it means a lot. So I stand humbled.

    That left me speechless. As I read it, all I could do was recall the events of that day, it would be nice if it was only a tale.

    Love
