    Problems ? / Solutions ?

    Suicide, matricide, homicide, genocide
    -- Annihilation of a nation
    Alcoholic, crack addicted, disease afflicted
    -- Defecate on a race
    Who's to blame? Always the same
    Gun makers, law breakers

    Sirens blaring, ambulance waiting, mothers wailing
    Funeral homes, cemetery's sons, no longer mother's own
    Persecution is not an illusion
    Police brutality is reality
    Jail cell ? Does it ring a bell ?

    Exploitation, depression, deprivation, desperation
    Enough protest, off with their heads
    Children having children, abortion is not the option
    Education, identification, liberation from oppression
    Bright minds, always survive.

    "A dream deferred" brother Langston said, or
    "By any means necessary" as
    Malcolm X unapologetically expressed.

    *Thanks for the invite brother. We're on the same flow & page

    I already taped it, but I'm experiencing difficulties in dowloading it to the site. I'm still feeling myself around the site.

    Thanks again

    PEACE & MUCH RESPECT
