    I'm a rebel,
    but not for your cause-
    a soldier,
    but not for your wars-
    I pause;
    in moments of silence
    that weep at the violence
    of minds incarcerated
    their ruin perpetuated
    by politicians peddling fear.

    My hue always gets screwed.

    How could your enemies be cursed
    if the strings of your purse
    reek of cotton ******* and their blood?

    Its the one drop rule that triggered the flood;
    now hate is screaming at your gates.
    You thought you could lock Karma
    behind penitentiary walls
    and in unmarked graves
    then preach Jesus saves.

    Its the boomerang effect;
    the trajectory is set in its path
    and there's nothing you can do-
    you brewed this cup of wrath.

    On the trail of tears, in the middle passage;
    even the sharks tryin-a give you this message,
    but you're struck deaf with the song of your might,
    trusting in the deliverance of aluminum kites
    and their droppings from the skies.

    But you will never again
    fly high, fly high-
    For your hour has been struck
    by the hands of the
    MOST HIGH; MOST HIGH; MOST HIGH.

    WONDERFUL SYMMETRY!

    Not only is it well written, it is so real!
    I enjoyed it immensely and look forward
    to reading more of your work.
    On that note check out whitewashed black!
    Feel me?:cool:
