    We seem to think our freedom came via the stroke of a pin
    Thus ignoring the enemy within
    And 2 am calls seeking the next of kin
    Happens with alarming frequency
    We allowed mass
    Media to erode our sense of decency
    I never knew a people tricked so **** completely
    We put trust in leaders selected in shrouds of secrecy
    Anti-American feelings enflamed
    Young folks look at ministers with rims and mansions with distain
    Moral authority they can no longer claim
    Don’t trust em
    Is more than an hip hop refrain
    With each passing day
    We put to shame
    Heroic names
    Do you think Harriet Tubman would be tamed?
    Like the aftermath of Katrina
    We spread the blame
    Rainbow warriors and bean pies merchants
    Both modern day Cains
    Yet try to explain on their watch
    our pain
    tripled -
    Along with our misery
    Block after block white powder is the prevailing industry
    It used to be that to get paid
    One would seek the ministry
    Or get a corner store and sell Hennessy
    So now an unholy trinity
    Has become our enemy
    Our energy is expanded in fueling the negative
    It has been suggested
    That our sub conscious minds
    Have been arrested
    Developments in mind control
    Enhance the role
    Of the television,
    Sparking the divisions
    Set tripping causing collisions
    Brainwashed by history’s revisions
    Elders look on with derision
    Fueling the suspicion
    That the blood on our streets
    fuels our economic system
    Black men in prison
    Dayam how the numbers have risen
    As I said in my poem Somebody explain this shyte
    On the watch of William Jefferson Clinton
    Black men on death row still filled American’s prisons
    And just for the record
    Ron Brown was murdered, is anybody listening?
    We see the world only through our enemy’s prism
    Thus we see only the difference
    In Muslim, Jew and Christian
    Dark clouds of the apocalypse
    Gather in the distance
    America plays a game of chicken
    With countries that have the power to deliver mushroom clouds
    Our leaders are aroused by power
    thus they espouse
    agendas with dangerous repercussions
    Now it's more that just the Russians
    That can bring us to our knees
    A dirty bomb will make one million bleed
    The writing has been on the wall yet we never read

    You're sure right about the writing being on the wall...yet no one reads,
    I think we read, I also think that, we sometimes read with shades on.
    tight piece from the pen, thanks for the wake-up
