    Wishing you could fly
    Get away from the bump and grind
    Of things
    The world’s greatest
    Reduced to nothing
    What excuse offered?
    She’s got that vibe
    That draws
    Make you drop
    your draws
    cause her body’s calling
    so you figured you’d answer
    messing with girls born in the 90’s
    hitting a 12 play
    cause that’s the perfect age
    to hit it just like that
    what?
    You say you didn’t mean it
    Tug of war in your mind
    Predatory deviant
    Satisfying some sick desire
    To be the first to put a tap in her sap
    Filming escapades
    But you been betrayed
    By sources unknown
    But here’s a clue
    Like a Sparkle in the night
    Showing glimpses of your vice
    Caught up in your own web
    Can’t break free
    Wishing you could fly away.


    Don't mean to offend any of the fans....But.....

    Yeah.. if only he could fly- I don't condone what he's accused of but Woddy Allen did the same thing and worse- he was a parent- and America has never, to my knowledge, made a big deal of it. I pray JAH's mercy on the brother and the families of those girls that are now hurting.

    Its so dissapointing when the stars we so much like to idolise turn out to be nothing sick and twisted in mind. R. Kelly was or is still consumed by a demon of lust-it starts with a little this or that and then it turns out to be something more and more that it needs to satisfy its need. I can't comprehend how he could have done that-and in as much people say,..."well so and so also did it.." but R.Kelly is a black role model leading the way in the in a tough industry. He was caught on tape...he can't deny that's not himself. I hope he can fly out of this one...

    lo'

    Good flow Bishop. Your poem is beautiful with no sense of being judgmental. It simply makes one think. Sometimes we try make excuse why a brotha or sista did what they did. However, in a situation just like Kelly's...there is no excuse.

    Being the mother of one daughter, I am not offended by this thought provoking poem you have scribed. KISS has boasted many times, about the teenage girls that they've laid. Then there's that other rock star who so many love, I can't think of his name, he song at Princess Di's funeral. He has had sex with many teenage boys, but the media only gave it a causual mention of this some years ago. In fact, this sin that Kelly is being accusedof happens all the time among popular white male singers, but the media covers for those they "love".
    What I'm tryin'g to say is, our brothas, whether they are Michael Jackson, R. Kelly or Mike Tyson, must uphold a certain standard in their private lives. If they don't, they will answer to the media for it, more severly than their white counterparts. There is simply no
    excuse for this behaviour, especially when there are grown women begging for a chance to get in bed with them. This haiku helps explain where I be coming from.

    Some say he did it
    i n love...but it just felt good.
    Nuthin' but pure lust.

    PD....Didn't mean to bring you away from your summer fun...Thanks for the read.

    $$Rich$$....this brutha needs Jesusand recognize one who is truly the greatest.

    YeshuJah....Thanks for reading......certain spotlights seem to be reserved just for us.

    mkhaya lo'....thanks for taking the time out and reading this one...

    Joyce.....This brutha must realize the only way to truly fly is with Jesus...otherwise he shall continue to crash land in his sin...

    Sinking very fast
    in your fleshly desires
    no focus on God

    WoW! Now this shows me a glimpse of how deep your waters
    are. This is truth which can NOT be refuted in any way.
    I am watching you and gleaming some too. :heart:
