    (off the dome)

    man can't live off bread alone--
    but he all ways--
    holler hungry--
    stomach rumbling
    growling and such--
    but--
    maybe him need qwenching--
    spritual
    re-vi-tuh-luh-zay-shun

    seems men talk sooooooo much--
    they forget the face of action--
    and all that it entails--

    four chambers of flesh--
    beating out of one's chest--
    describes the hearts of men--
    human spirit truimphant over--
    ever-y
    ad
    versit-y
    yet

    man can't live off bread alone--
    but him all ways--
    holler hungry--
    stomach tossing--
    turning and such--
    maybe he need qwenching--
    spiritual--
    re-sus-a-tay-shun

    breathe life into
    the face of ak-shun--
    if u might have the gall--
    stop.talking.
    and
    'just do it'
    as the spirit of victory would have
    suggested--

    leave my mind swollen--
    with politics--
    and inner-city ails--
    and pain--
    but i am just me--
    and me ain't collectively us--
    although us might have the same--
    four chambers--
    our heart beat different ways--
    and we all are different--
    even if us could could make a difference--
    it would be a different difference
    cuz we are all--
    different.

    stop.talking.

    all that one might muster--
    to scream the troubles of the day shall be squandered--
    by ignorant acts of--
    not knowing--
    and not choosing to know
    yet--
    still disturbed and complaining --
    while
    sittin--
    doin
    nuttin
    juss
    chillin.....
    stop.talking.

    sometimes i wish my heart would just
    stop.beating.
    i hear the the breath of earth and--
    life's.wheezing.
    dying softly--
    wanting to know not--
    but knowing--
    what thoughts and feelings flow through the
    contractions and recessions and murmurs--
    of the
    hearts.of.men.
