    The man is a master - we should all look up some of his work.

    SOMEBODY BLEW UP AMERICA

    They say its some terrorist, some
    barbaric
    A Rab, in
    Afghanistan
    It wasn't our American terrorists
    It wasn't the Klan or the Skin heads
    Or the them that blows up Ni*g**
    Churches, or reincarnates us on Death Row
    It wasn't Trent Lott
    Or David Duke or Giuliani
    Or Schundler, Helms retiring

    It wasn't
    the gonorrhea in costume
    the white sheet diseases
    That have murdered black people
    Terrorized reason and sanity
    Most of humanity, as they pleases

    They say (who say? Who do the saying
    Who is them paying
    Who tell the lies
    Who in disguise
    Who had the slaves
    Who got the bux out the Bucks

    Who got fat from plantations
    Who genocided Indians
    Tried to waste the Black nation

    Who live on Wall Street
    The first plantation
    Who cut your nuts off
    Who rape your ma
    Who lynched your pa

    Who got the tar, who got the feathers
    Who had the match, who set the fires
    Who killed and hired
    Who say they God & still be the Devil

    Complete poem here

    Well I guess you have to be there next time.

    Be there
    Or be square
    Be here
    Or be queer
