    Had to die to be reborn again
    reissue myself a new license
    to intellectually vent before my
    last physical breath is spent
    and what do i see in mommas house?

    cracks in the walls...

    a small microcosm of diasporic
    blak people...disunity...

    come back to find fussing and fighting
    backstabbing and backbiting
    we too old come to far breathed to long
    laughed too much as a family
    for me swallow this ill pill...

    intraverbal poisoning is contagious
    even if the masses don't take part
    in the maliciousness and facetiousness
    cause the masses have long
    memories...and tainted seeds bear
    broken fruit...in the unconscience

    cracks in the wall...

    weaken foundations
    unbeautify structures
    vandalize sanity
    serenades vanity

    with the harmony of
    dead finches...

    "hey msluciousB with all due respect you and kemet squash
    the madness...please"

    I so totally agree !

    Can't we all just kiss and make up ?

    All this stress can't possibly be good for the soul

    Started not to read...

    It so funny to me how folks are up in arms, when someone just started by asking a question. I think I probably struck a nerve
    and some were struck who felt they didn't deserve. I have had my say and have gone on my way and been scribing and replying
    most every day. No, it's not just me you see, it is all of those who
    see, but don't want to see.
    I remain as loyal to Destee as ever, been chastised in public my head still high. And you were the only one who did apologize.
