    Some celebrated the day after the
    third of the seventh month
    by cooking bar be que, drinking
    cold ones, and pledging ALLegience

    Some forgot that in 1776
    America celebrated by cooking
    us under the hot *** sun
    while we built this MONOPOLY
    of a CONtry, skinny dipped many
    of us in the cold Atlantic permanently,
    and pledged to kill us if we
    wanted to be FREE....just like
    this CONtry

    And some black folks still
    celebrate the day after the third
    of the seventh month...

    this "helliday"

    And some black folks still
    pledge ALLiegience to that
    "rag" that flows against the
    grain of morality....and for
    which it is SUPPOSED to stand
    for

    And some black folks are
    happier than horses grazing
    in the green pastures of
    a glue factory...

    And some kcalb folks are
    just *** backwards...

    And love to sellabrate
    free"dumb".

    Continue to teach

    enlighten and provoke thought...quench my never ending thirst for knowledge.

    tight scribe blakdini !

    I tried to start a piece combining this helliday and picnic (pic a nigg**) since that is what most african americans do on this hellidays (have a picnic/'cookout and watch the fireworks). Anyway, I felt there was/is a connection between the two, I just couldn't put it into words.
