    Don’t call me askin’ me to write some of that love ****!
    Don’t interrupt my poetic flow askin’
    for some shallow roses are red, violet’s are blue
    you love and I love you ****!
    Cause this is not a request line!

    Don’t tell me you want to hear some silly birds and bees ****
    while little girls are being abducted daily
    and little boys molested sadly
    by sick predators
    scavenging our neighborhoods
    and your *** want’s to be entertained.
    Cause this is not a request line!

    Don’t bother me with dumb *** cries for
    humorous, shuckin’ & jivin’, slap-stick, stand-up comedy,
    when every continent is at war
    and nations are killing their own
    for religious differences
    and invisible no-fly zones
    and borders on lands stained with
    blood from trespassers, in there own minds.
    Cause this is not a request line!

    Don’t send me a request for
    frivolous vanities and dreams of a perfect world
    when the Ku Klux Klan and the New Black Panther Party
    can march on our capitals
    with messages of hate and separatism
    and American democracy says
    “it’s their rights under the law!”
    This is not a **** request line!

    I am taking no request
    be cause my poetic soul
    compels me to flip the this beast of society
    and expose the underbelly we’d all like to ignore.
    I have to show you depravity in the black community
    precipitated by Democrats and Republicans.
    I have to show you the racism that still exist in our churches
    as we all go our separate ways on Sunday morning’s at eleven.
    I cannot ignore the under-handed dealings of government
    officials would dare not stop the illegal drug trade because
    it would mean no more 6 bedroom mansions, yachts, and
    Ferrari’s so the ghetto keeps suffering
    with crack cocaine in its veins.
    I refuse to be silent about the institutionalized racism
    in the day to day operations of major corporations
    where Negro’s still ain’t welcome in the board rooms and
    the secret meeting where “keep the ni&&A’s in their place
    is the modus operandi.
    Corporate pimps, and government simps
    racist minds and unchanging times.
    Hated, racism, scisms, isms.
    Africans killing.
    Croation and Surbian genocide.
    Christian Holy Wars and Islamic Jhiad.
    The IRA and PLO.
    The Taliban, Al Queda
    and bloody revolutionists causing peoples the cry.
    Do you hear the cries? Do you hear the cries?
    The cries of billions of aborted babies.
    The cries of billions of euthanasized seniors?
    And you want to be entertained??
    **** that! This is not a **** request line!
    Open your **** ears to poetic truths!

    I really liked what you had to say here and how you said it...but amidst all the chaos, destruction, sadness, pain and hurt, we have to make room for all the good things in life as well...if we don't it will consume us...so sometimes it is necessary to step into the sunshine for a little while...

    WHEW!!!! I HEARD this one, Klabarron and it was awsome, great points and certainly a poetic voice speaking it OUT from under. I think you and Kitana are both right, we need both sides of the poetic spectrum as well as all the various voices out there. We need to be spending time on all sides of life as each allows us to see and feel the other. Without the bad times the good is just not as sweet. Uh, Oh, am I lecturing here? :(
