    Of freedom, justice & peace
    A new world order it’s about to be
    So if you’re on the border you have to make a decision now,
    can’t you see?
    There’s about to be a division of the people, of the land
    PLEASE understand... A NEW WORLD ORDER man!
    Not what them bushes talking bout,
    Doubt they’ll like what’s about to unfold,
    The manifestation of the end of their world
    Watch, just watch, as the chaos unfurls…

    This country, which rules the entire world
    Was made for white men by white men
    Guess that explains why he pretty much runs everything
    Our captivity, our slaughter… the signature of the forefathers
    My brothas, sistas I bear witness that you, me –
    WE are descendants of those stole away from our homeland
    Stowed beneath decks, chained by feet, hands & neck…
    Sailed through a middle passage,
    bound in conditions less than savage…
    Posted on blocks for sale, the whole idea of our family knocked -
    Daddy @ some plantation farther than the mind could conceive,
    Bearing the lash, planting & harvesting crops
    but never obtaining any cash
    Mama over there working the land,
    mothering the children of ma’am
    And branded the black whore of choice-
    taken by force- beaten and raped…
    Babies scattered about grown into the master’s toys to exploit
    Sodomized little boys, deflowered little girls
    Strung up by ropes ALL often dangled,
    trapped within death chokes,
    As terrorists, hooded in white, celebrated lives they revoked

    America the beautiful? Naw, that’s not suitable!
    Great whore, modern Babylon suits her much more…
    You love her? She loves you not!
    Don’t be distraught, you probably thought it anyway
    Even today she wonders why we didn’t all die
    Somebody should’ve told her-
    the more you kill us, the more we multiply
    Maybe she caught the sign out the corner of the eye
    Cause now she encourages birth control,
    diminishing our reproductive worth
    And aborting our wombs,
    praying our end will come soon
    Remains still lie scattered on the floor of the ocean
    The graveyard continues to spread vast upon the land
    as we partake of the devil’s potion

    OVER 400 years of blood, sweat & tears wasn’t in vain
    And by them saying that was then, this is now –
    we’re all the same when things really haven’t changed
    can’t make the situation sane!!!
    This nation was molded and shaped by death, hell and degradation…
    Now we’re screaming REPARATIONS!
    Repair the brutality, terror and devastation…
    Repair the lack of culture, self-preservation and mis-education…
    The Most High has heard our moans, groans- our cry!
    Look around, wonder why the white man’s world is crumbling?
    Why the walls that made him seem so tall
    are tumbling down like Jericho?

    She sat a queen seeing no sorrow
    Not considering the consequences of tomorrow
    But even Jefferson looked toward the future, now today
    To say he trembled for this country when reflecting:
    God is just and His justice cannot sleep forever…
    NOW, it’s wide-awake for our sake!
    Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth
    Especially those in this country,
    cause judgment of America is first…

    Given a picture through surahs and scripture
    Prophecy is being fulfilled
    Angels sounding trumpets and pouring out vials
    Igniting famine, drought and pestilence
    in mosquitoes carrying west Nile
    Judgment in torrential rains causing floods
    In snow, sleet and blocks of hail falling from above…
    In earthquakes and scorching heat…
    In the words Farrakhan now speaks
    So bitter, yet so sweet
    Their 6,000-year reign is complete!

    We stand @ the dawn of a new day… A new world order
    Where the last are the first and the first are the last
    Perhaps our ancestors can rest in peace @ last
    Honor them in thought, word and deed
    While we make more monumental strides to succeed
    Never letting the world forget our holocaust at whatever cost
    I pour out libation to you… my ancestors of greatness
    as REPARATIONS we pursue!

    peace

    NADIA*BINTA,

    This powerful piece is one important reminder of the Black Holocaust. We cannot forget or allow anyone else to forget our plight. The meek, are about to kick it!

    ooohhhH...my heart is heavy laden with the weight of such libations...spewing forth TRUTH about the origins of this corrupt nation...and prophesies of THE BEAST that heads the world of present day BABYLON...the daughters and sons of which will soon be gone.

    NADIA*BINTA...you are fast becoming a favorite "river flower" of mine.:)

    let the river flow.

    I could feel the pain and power all over this piece.
    We must remember our yesterdays because they
    shape our tomorrows.
    Peace poet!
