    after a cup of jo, my day begins
    and i retain my physical to a rectangular
    eight-by-ten
    and glare out into the world I.S.O.
    "ANSWERS TO REMEDY RHETORICAL QUESTIONS"
    like the prefix that attempts to represent
    my people
    making us seem far less than equal-when we
    truly are far mo'

    "dis-"

    heads a lot of terms negative to my description
    DISenfranchised/DIScombobulated/DISconnected/
    DISintegrated/DIShonored/DISgraced/DIScontinued......
    and others with similar encryption
    how can we alter this pre-determined fate when
    this office job barely fills my plate/and upward mobility
    has a slope so it should be called upward downfall when pertaining to us all/ placing me in a comfort zone
    adequate to HIS
    satisfaction
    but in NO position to start a chain
    reaction to pull othaz up the........ ladder
    cause the success part ain't promised
    and we question the Amish!-seems smart to me
    that they resort to their own means of life for survival
    instead, we've become a coup of paper pushers writing rhymes on
    (COMP)any time-
    the office is where our movement has been sent
    so, should we be called the official movement?
    if so, let's look beyond the norm and perform
    so that we can open doors
    for my brothaz
    and sistaz
    on the street to join a team
    of elite leaders
    headed for a takeover.
