Until the Handle Becomes Too Hot

When the consumer can no longer afford
For necessities to pay
And a one fold though fairly strong cord
Can be broken in just a day

When an economy built on the backs of those
Who make daily sacrifices
Then it without saying goes
Things will crumble from exorbitant prices

When your rights to justice under the law
Cost too much cash for you to pay
Then there is a serious flaw
In how we dispense justice per say

And when some rather revel in the dream
Than do what it takes to get there
Then involuntarily they dam up the stream
Creating a body of ideas that lead to nowhere

And when tax cuts becomes the god
Of those who don’t have to spend
Why can’t they perceive why times are so hard
And their mad edict bring to an end

But human nature throughout history
Has shown that mankind is a stubborn lot
And will hold on to the ladle of false prosperity
Until the handle becomes too hot

Amen, my brotha!

This is how we "buy what we want and beg for what we need."

Shouldn't take the bottom to drop out to realize the foundation is shaky, but often times that's the way it is. I appreciate the intensity of your writes poet.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
