    history.. spirals debate
    and dust
    out of hate for truth
    loss of youth
    and energy
    tendecies to be logical
    and methodical
    to self- serve...
    with the nerve to make him-
    white with an
    amerikkkan paint brush
    and blakkk deakkkons want
    me to hush when l'm speakin' about
    the greens left off the plate
    in the last supper portrait hanging above kkkreflo's door
    so l'm sending the pastor to the store
    to get Texas Pete or Louisiana so my people
    can cry Hosanna
    instead of the rage of the West and its
    economical uproar
    what's the confusion for they ask...
    they "honor God with their lips but their heart is far from him"...
    far...
    like a 5 percenter paying 10 percent an a Baptist convention
    did l mention
    that history spirals debate
    and dust
    you don't love the truth you lust
    for lies
    l can see the confusion in your eyes as you search
    and
    search for a revolution to rise when he's already risen..

    There is truth sprinkled all through this. Self serving, yes, but that's the name of their game. Waiting for pt. 2.

    dopeness.
    i was feelin this from beginning to end.
    i liked to topic it had some nice angles to it.
    i like the diction used to get across your point.
    the kkk thing was tight.

    "amerikkkan paint brush
    and blakkk deakkkons want
    me to hush when l'm speakin' about
    the greens left off the plate
    in the last supper portrait hanging above kkkreflo's door"

    ^^^ nicely expressed.
    i really liked these lines the most.

    "you don't love the truth you lust
    for lies
    l can see the confusion in your eyes as you search"

    ^^ i liked those lines too..

    nice drop man.
    stay up
    Wun...

    My Brother...

    I'm not amazed as I know your are "Simply Amazing"but this was Brilliantly constructed...loved the kkkreflo...
    part...boy you don't waist words nor do you dull the
    edge of your sword when your doing the lords work... :bowdown:

    What more can I say...but if I could bottle your thoughts...
    and sell them...the world would be enlightened and I as I
    always do...would simply release them into the air...just so
    I could re-inhale them... :bowdown: *Breathing Deeply as I speak*

    (you deserve the army on this one)
