    From presidents to rapists
    There are pleas of no responsibility
    You see they did not know
    Were not aware of
    That this is or was a problem

    When kidneys are open for donation
    Affirmations must stand as evidence of resolve
    Releasing pleas for a unified front
    Knowing that positive thinking changes things
    Like if we think more positively we can prevent a storm

    Saying Katrina was not a fore warned forecasted event
    Making it necessary to show international allies
    We are interested in saving fossil fuel
    That world peace starts with support of Hip Hop and capitalization
    The earth becoming a somewhat flat economic field for companies

    Is it now clear that it is easy for world leaders
    To talk out both sides of their mouth
    While scientist and drug companies make sure
    That they have monopolies on possible cures that maintain the status quo
    Coiffures filled with money to insure there is a pandemic of bird flu

    Did you just die laughing when the 37 year old child molester stated
    That the 4 year old male child care client victim seduced her
    It just does not make sense when we hear that a similar age child
    Paid with his life when he knocked over a television set
    That 6 year old Nixmary was murdered after it being found she took a yogurt

    Somehow we miss the point here
    Like what ever happened to truth and who knows what it is now
    While opposite polar caps melt at an alarming rate
    Meaning it was not supposed to happen that fast, maybe
    Does it really matter what truth is when we are so en-armored by reality TV

    When relationships are personal scams for sexual release
    Families fall by the wayside because it is hard to connect with each other
    When everyone fights wars of solitude while constantly moving
    Forward ….. beyond ….. this ………space ……..in ….. time
    Employment issues becomes dread of taxes and bills of needs and wants

    Stranger yet each day and in every place
    We demand that these acts be multiplied into syndication
    So we can watch them on 250 channels of illusion
    Thinking one day we can turn a channel and see our family there somehow
    Because our higher mind would never accept any of this as real

    HI Patrice
    You are so true on this drop
    It do seem like we are caught in a illusion
    And we have ro keep our mind and wit about ourselves
    in order to live
    much love Poet

    Peace

    Now that's heat. Fire blazing through the lies and illusions
    leaving nothing but the truth.
    Hot one, Poet
    One love
