    Beating , tappin
    Machine clappin
    political unjust
    mental lie confess
    correction of
    connection ringing
    arrogant glory
    on struggling story
    of defeated streets
    between above love
    and low down mud
    will the bet be real
    that kill voting thrills
    stolen vows
    banned child
    wisdom closed
    knowledge fold
    glutted & decomposed
    lik a budget cut
    between da gut
    of have nots and what is
    of dis country dismay
    by da play makers on
    capital hill
    passing another bill
    to steal my fronts
    I sound da alarm
    fight wit charm still
    i'm not free
    from dis bondage
    soakin me up like a
    sponge mentally
    in the political arena
    of society & life
    I'll do a Ben Franklin
    and discover new light
    from my blowing drifting
    kite or set sight on night
    fall after roll call
    HERE !
    dear God I'm here alive
    yet still in dis jave of
    pride , lies and betrayal
    of polite govern & politician
    baraged mental beat down
    tappin "

    Those in power don't care how they got there, only how they intend to remain there, and we stand here in the midst of it all wondering, so what now? Particularly liked these lines:
    I'll do a Ben Franklin
    and discover new light
    from my blowing drifting
    kite or set sight on night
    fall after roll call
    HERE !

    This was creatively tight and on point. Flow on brotha.
