    He slid high roun' the corner
    probably had just hit that crack
    when bruhboy spotted me that night
    and sped up in his tracks...

    "Mmmm, gon' git dis heah gold
    Gon' jack all dat cash
    And when i'm thu get'n
    Gon' snatch dat phat a**"

    He displayed the gun proudly
    and in my Africentric head
    drums drummed hard- pounding loudly
    It happened so slo- mo fast
    Okay, okay... now where was this covered
    in Amos Wilson's class?

    I couldn't speak but
    I saw in his eyes
    Deep self and group hate
    ****!!!... he believes Yurugu's lies
    Oh! the brain screamed- I'm your sister,
    I'm the one you must protect!
    But since Maafa's rein...

    So many civilizations and minds
    have been vampiristically wrecked
    Our Ancestors and
    the global deeply melanated family
    have all fallen prey
    to the mutant's depravity

    Since he and she awoke
    and poured out of the icebox
    too many of our family
    have had their souls and minds Pavlovian locked

    Yes, he got the gold
    But body and soul remained intact
    Ancestral guidance walked me into
    the middle of the street
    Never to look back

    No shots rang out
    No blood was spilled
    He just went away...
    And I'm standing still

    Clear-minded and focused
    as Armah told in "2000 Seasons" ...pray
    Springwater flowing in
    Return to our WAY.
