    This Ain’t prophesy, but its what I C

    Iamwhoam1959 © 2005

    It’s unreal they way we sit still
    As they close in for the kill
    It’s unreal
    But you see
    We waste time seeking thrills
    And as I said in my poem, 9-1-1
    This is not a drill
    In 1992 we all got fooled
    By a dope dealer named Bill
    Who spent eight years having both friends and enemies killed
    “W”, just sends them to the killing fields
    But hiz-story has revealed
    Both parties rob, butcher, and steal
    Yet we lack both political skill or the collective will
    To successfully learn the art of a deal
    But that hasn’t kept our leaders from their
    Five course meals,

    Which brings me to the case of
    Government agent 666 -
    And hears my “message” to that black man

    A few years ago
    I witnessed your tearful mea culpa on 60 Minutes
    But for me it failed to diminish
    Your role in brother Malcolm’s untimely finish
    A bloody blemish
    Remains
    An ugly stain
    A sold out soul
    But to what gain?
    So that 30 years later
    A Million men could march
    For your glory, your honor and your fame?
    You got misguided soldiers worshiping a fraudulent name
    Too busy hustling pies to
    Peep game
    Or so they claim
    But I think it is it fear of reprisals
    That has them restrained
    Like Pavlov’s dogs
    Conditioned and trained
    Freed from prison -
    But still in chains
    If they only knew

    If they only knew

    That now a black devil has replaced a white one
    And at the end of the day
    Only the shackles have changed

    And it’s uncanny
    To say the least
    But I don’t get it twisted when I see the beast
    Because I know its now no longer men in sheets
    That are the sole source of our grief
    Our city streets
    Are terrorized by red and blue beefs
    And 100 thousand saints on Sunday
    With their bibles, faith and belief
    don't bring Peace,
    But get fleeced
    Because apparently Salvation ain’t cheap
    Even liquor stores, pimps and hustlers find it hard to compete
    With a misinterpreted scripture
    That keeps a nation asleep
    We worship the lamb
    But bow down like sheep

    I wonder if the objective
    Of the pastor’s directives
    Is to maintain a slumbering collective
    You see
    Penitentiary minds
    Distorts our perspective
    And though its been suggested
    But not requested
    I wonder if
    Our own 9/11 would bring us justice?
    Or as Richard Pryor once said
    just us
    But we have 2 much reverence
    And show too much deference
    To do any thing that would stress em
    Test em
    But god bless em
    We’ll be brothers and sisters in heaven
    Rignt?
    But it’s the heaven on earth that we ignore
    And clearly our intent for the Nubian nation
    is not to restore

    Like an aging lion without a roar
    Each day becomes a chore
    Since in 2005 our image in the mirror
    we still fail to adore
    Trust and believe
    The food will always taste better
    From the masters floor
    We peer through closed doors
    Trusting those whose duplicity
    And tacit complicity,
    But seekers and lovers of their own publicity
    Yet it’s our divinity
    Not another Kennedy
    That will provide us
    With a true and last remedy
    But we spend our energy
    Supporting thieves
    As we believe
    Whatever foolishness is up their sleeve
    Whether brilliant ****** up or ill conceived
    While a mad man
    Commander and chief
    Makes decisions based on greed
    But plants the seeds
    For more destruction
    And deadly deeds
    And when it comes?

    When it comes
    Hundred million of us are guaranteed to bleed
    And it won’t be over yet
    Because karmic justice responds in threes
    In 2001 we responded in arrogance
    Refusing to heed
    But once again America – and her allies
    The writing is on the wall
    But can we and will we read?

    This ain’t prophesy, but its what I C

    It amaze me how my brothers are so talented, and the image of black man that write from the scripts the books of life, in my view the aesthetic's of wisdom that runs through the DNA; in my summary of revelation, truth shall not come through the back door, and those who see the beauty in the ebony king, and those who continue to walk through the back door, in my review of your poetic creativity, it is beyond the proficiency of master, the appropiate view of the past, presents a cloud that many cannot see, the style of your aesthetic of history, concludes appropriate wisdom of matter, when the king said he shall return, through the mastery of your pen, I feel his presents through your script, the effect of your knowledge, only the spirit of ancestors that speaks through you, it commands the form of change, continue to write from the books of knowledge, and who shall come will be able to cut through the mere technical of self genocide. The development of your theme will be the revelation of today, soldiers of the almighty shall recognize the truth from your pen. nevertheless some will be save and many will not. the intellectual source of your wisdom, will be accessibile for those who will follow the script of knowledge; in reviewing your work, the atmosphere speaks of now, and the truth that have been written in the books of life, continue to teach, wisdom is God, and truth is the light, I found this to be effective, and your style of teaching creative, continue the good work Prophet.

    WOW... and indept piece/peace deserves and indepth response :) dont ya think...:read:

    Its the essence of writing to share to give to release...

    but there is a magic to the ability to do all that, while teaching/advising/scorning/ & growing

    Things dont seem to get betta they only get worse and I find myself comforted by the fact

    that in spite of it all we have brothas like yourself

    Warrior Kings, who are willing to stand up and testify even amidst enemy attack....

    be strong my brotha be strong.... :grouphug:
