    goes along with Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time"
    do you remember? ha, how he swayed you
    you were young and innocent then
    do you remember? ha, how he played you
    he would tell you that you could just take a bite
    do you remember? how he manifested
    sexually molested left us so infected
    do you remember? ha, when we taught him lessons
    gave his family blessings made his smith and wesson
    do you remember? he raped cleopatra
    nefertiti after and now he's a bastard
    do you remember? when he first came round
    came into our town turned our smiles to frowns
    do you remember? how he took our crowns
    let the sick men drown let our high hopes down
    do you remember? how he burned them slaves
    how he let them hang and he created gangs
    do you remember? all the aches and pains
    how he changed our name put his god in frames
    do you remember? what he did to Kings
    Martin Luther and Rodney they beating us to sleep
    do you remember? what he used to say
    now we say it everyday and it won't go away
    do you remember? ha, Mandela and Tutu
    together we can do... anything yeah
    do you remember? how he lyched us
    we thought it was a dream until he pinched us
    do you remember? ha, ha Malcom X
    oh no, that's Malik El-Hajj Shabazz yes
    do you remember? ha, ha Marcus Garvey
    King Haile Selassie, Ras Tafari, Bob Marley
    do you remember? ha, ha Cassius Clay
    oh no, that's Muhammed Ali what you say?!
    do you remember? ha, Michael Jackson
    and his fro before the bleaching and relaxing
    do you remember? ha, Angela Davis
    Les Nubienne French la femme oir against the racist
    do you remember the time?
    when we were in love
    do you remember the time?
    in ancient Egipt, girl
    do you remember the time?
    when we were up above
    do you remember the time?
    in ancient Kemet, girl

    We lost our minds we as almost an entire nation do not...think we believe. And who is the "thinker" that controls our beliefs and not thinking minds? So, how can we remember? How will we recollect Divinity with no recollection of Divine Order? The soul; encoded messages of the ever-present one that inter-connects all at once. The souls purpose, what we really once knew. Our as well disconnected and now divided (spiritually) impoverished minds; and that was the purpose why we cannot recollect or even remember... Kevin
