    Tired and pissed
    At predators
    That looks like me
    Talk like me
    Walk like me
    But don’t act anything like me
    They
    Rob
    Kill
    Destroy everything they touch
    Belittle
    The dreams
    Of our young
    With an assassin’s bullet
    Never realizing
    There is a higher power
    That they need to be aware of
    And that power
    Is
    We who make up
    The
    Oracle
    That shall educate
    And eliminate
    Ignorant ideals
    Of anarchy
    And selfishness
    We must castrate
    The
    Me
    myself
    and
    I
    notion
    That we have been besieged with
    And liberate
    Our minds
    With visions of unlimited possibilities
    Let the wicked be turned into hell
    As well as the hate mongers
    Who dare attempt to destroy
    The village
    That raises the children
    Putting our brethren on notice
    It has to stop
    It must stop
    It shall stop
    As long as there is ink in our pen
    And a sword in my hand
    We shall strike down every idle thought
    That doesn’t
    enhance
    uplift
    and
    motivate
    we must answer every challenge
    that is designed to intimidate us
    instead
    it will stimulate
    us and
    make us stronger and more determined
    As the Oracle drops lines of knowledge
    Embrace the words
    Of
    Baller, rich, so’ja and I
    Four who are now one
    United
    For one cause
    In one spirit

    We are the first line in this war
    better known as the final four
    on the battle field
    to stop destruction
    of our kind
    open blind minds
    bring unity
    to thou youth
    teach them of history
    da culture
    our deeds
    hear our words
    feel our inner power
    and rise
    from da
    shadows
    of da
    demons
    da devil
    and unworthy
    souls
    we now one
    pen of ink
    droppin
    hope
    faith
    love
    and unity

    a wakeup call...

    And it shall be done
    We draw the line…as we become one
    One with the power
    Delivering the knowledge
    Enforcing the rules
    Ruling the fools who dare to misuse
    …to abuse
    To run through…and over
    Those who cannot stand before their might
    But our forces of RIGHT
    Shall never fall
    We oppose them all
    Standing tall before the evil ones

    AND, IT SHALL BE DONE.

    what are we talking about
    we talking not seeing your brother
    not seeing each other as the enemy
    understanding and appreciating your history
    your legacy is a proud one don't lose yourself
    as time move on religiously

    peace bishop

    you're coming back very strong and determined man
    appreciate the energy

    and the message

    .......... i smell the poetic crusade
    and my ink is bloody....
    Mary don't weep... time to vote so don't sleep
    on the knowledge....
    don't be ignorant like you went to Palin college......
    between the chains and freedoms i saw many links break....
    and i saw 2 brothers... one ran to the left and the other to the right.....
