    Who said that the world revolves on it's axis?
    When in reality, the more money U make,
    the less U pay in taxes.
    While the man that gets sweaty & dirty at work gets shafted.
    Any chance the man gets,
    he increases any fees U gotta pay 2 live life.
    A lot of families go deeper into debt
    when someone's blessed & gives life.
    Let's not talk about what's owed after the final rites.
    That's why I'm putting my burial plot on lay-away, today.

    And it's gotten worse since the Republicans gained control of office.
    It's like they're holding the whole country hostage
    for "One Million Dollars".
    Marvin Gaye was on point when he said
    "It Makes Me Wanna Holler"
    Rent's goin' sky high along w/ homelessness & unemployment
    but they keep building condos.

    For who, do U suppose?
    The answer's right under your nose.
    Look at how bad they're trying 2 get Affirmative Action overthrown.
    Becuz it's known the black man will excel if the doors are cracked,
    so they keep most doors closed.
    And locked w/a deadbolt,
    That's a hard lock 2 pick.

    Why is it that suburbia is synonymous w/white
    and blacks have 2 dream about upper-middle class?
    Why do we comprise 20% of the population,
    but only 1% of the haves?
    It makes me wanna holla.

    We've got inner-city youth centers
    designed 2 deter kids from frequenting the streets.
    But their doors get closed becuz
    they don't have the backing of the cities.
    So little kids get killed at playgrounds cuz the only
    alternative 4 teens 2 congregate are basketball courts,
    w/ no water fountains.
    And U know how tempers flare as the heat starts mountin'.
    It's illegal 2 open hydrants but we don't have pools in the hood,
    but we have more liquor stores than we can count.
    It's time we turn this country upside down & inside out.
    Make them do what should be done.

    Land of the free, home of the brave.
    Yeah, right.
    So tell me why are they so afraid
    to let us get a piece of the pie?
    I'll tell U why.
    Cuz what goes around comes around multiplied 5 times.
    So they tell themselves lies,
    like the black race is inferior.
    But deep in their hearts, they keep fearing us.
    That's why we won't have a black president anytime soon.
    Cuz we've raised ourselves up from slavery & stopped being coons.
    Now if we can only stop being b!tches & ******
    and be brothers & sisters.
    Then we'd be a force 2 be reckoned with.

    I am truly speechless...(by the way...this is monumental for me)

    just know your message reached deep within me and
    touched many issues that are very near and dear to me...
    You are a poet with a message!...there's nothing greater!

    Once again, I am thankful beyond words that my words have been appreciated.

    I only hope that my mind can give sight to the most blinded of us, so that we may become what we were meant to be.

    Angelic, your words are beyond inspiring, thank you from the depths of my soul.

    G. the truth shall set US free.

    JH, just to know that you hear is conrete, peace.

    Mzblk, I do this for us.

    $$, just keep watch, brother, I'm not close to being done yet.
