    This plea goes to my sisters and brothers

    This request is for the fathers and mothers

    To everything that still has breath

    If you haven’t yet experience death

    I’m calling you into this critical service

    For your lack of input is a disservice

    What gave you the right to opt out

    Reaping the benefits without a doubt

    Yet acting like the fight isn’t about you

    As if you shouldn’t have to pay your due

    I refuse to listen to you talk the talk

    If you are not attempting to walk the walk

    Beloved, please stop being a hypocrite

    You not meant to be an ungrateful misfit

    For you come from a long line of royalty

    Who identified with integrity and loyalty

    I am not telling you how to do what you do

    But I am telling you it is time to get a clue

    Stop refusing to acknowledge the revolution

    If you not an active integeral part of the solution

    Then for all intents & purposes you’re the trouble

    And who benefits from our problem being doubled

    Not you or I because regrettably we in this together

    Even if you do always jump ship in stormy weather

    They look at you the exact same way that they do me

    And without your support that’s how it will always be

    So my brother, my sister please answer the call of duty

    The Call of Duty is great! This day to day routine is only a distraction from what we were really created to do. Great flow!
