    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 in 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 capital
    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 *****’s in their place
    is the modus operandi.
    Corporate pimps, and government simps
    racist minds and unchanging times.
    Hated, racism, scisms, isms.
    Africans killing.
    Coation 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 not a **** request line!
    Open your **** ears to poetic truth!

    Very tight flow...struck a bad chord and yet I don't know why because you were tellin the truth. I think it's because I don't wanna get wrapped up in the bad of the world , I'm just enjoying my time as a teenager. But still, I'm thanking you for writing this piece because it's so REAL and though my eyes are definitely stillclosed to the drama of this world and how Black poeple are still being treated like they're still in a 1965 grade school only in private with glares and stares. This disturbed me in a good way...b/c yet again, pieces like this are telling me to look at what I don't wanna look at, what I wanna ignore yet I can't b/c who know what will be in store for me?....Sorry I couldn't flow the feelings that you put into me. Once again....Tight piece and keep telling the truth
