    In a cloud of ganja smoke
    Inhaling…
    Exhaling…
    I don’t choke
    Many thoughts I provoke
    reality of the situations we’re facing
    Ain’t no joke!…
    A flood of thoughts I’ve provoked
    I take note…

    …so grows the flow…

    To me, it seems life is but a dream
    Sometimes a terror or nightmare
    Staring me down everyday,
    Daring me to give up
    And make a premature exit
    Out the wrong way…

    We’re indulging in sport and fun
    While the world is coming undone
    trickology, contrary psychology
    has the masses being herded to slaughter
    blindly like ignorant @sses
    with or without books
    both refusing to look around
    and ask what’s really going on?…

    Time swiftly passes
    Like the last grains of sand in the hourglass
    Passing us into an hour of darkness…
    within the path of totality
    a dredful reality
    is about to be made manifest to you and me
    anarchy, mass fatalities
    So many questions and illusions
    Produce confusion, but what is the reality?

    REALITY check, check
    Gotta stop shutting our eyes, sealing our ears,
    Covering our mouth being complaisant
    This war on terrorism
    Is yet another form of profiling,
    RACISM…
    And while we’re caught up in this american resolve,
    PATRIOTISM
    Our hands are building a prison called,
    HEIGHTENED NATIONAL SECURITY
    To support bush and his TYRANNY…
    Religious persecution by false assumptions, blind accusations
    Complicate many situations at hand in this so-called freedom land
    Freedom of expression, of speech,
    To bear arms against those who intend to inflict bodily harm-
    Slowly, surely leaking into a murky puddle of unidentifiable objects…

    Heart of the financial world suffering failure
    stock market’s about to crash &
    Dollar value falling,
    dissolving into worthless green paper
    Still we’ve inhaled the vapors
    Wrapped up in big $ spending,
    bling blinging and balling
    while depression’s slipping into the economic mood
    Inflation creeping upon cost of goods
    Leading to hyperinflation of simple necessities
    like water and food…

    Check it out
    If in doubt
    Just know you need to be about
    Proper preparation
    Cuz this ain’t the land of plenty
    Invest some dough in gold
    Before our $’s value folds
    Stock up non-perishable foods, H2O
    Weaponry & ammo
    Prepare some safe place
    For you & yours to go
    Cuz when everything starts to collapse
    That urban warfare they practice for
    Is coming our way, any day
    Please check the reality
    So you won’t be a fatality…

    peace
