    seems we've lost a sense
    of our true values

    a world war zone on shore
    setting forth the score when
    time hits like Gettysburg four
    score

    can't ignore diplomacy deplore
    fighting a battle shackling
    freedom less heed them don't
    feed them

    see them
    running like Kevin Cheatum
    reaps leaps bounding over
    heathens

    who can free them from what
    the nation is teething brother
    keeping sister weeping all the
    time to keep on keeping yet
    still seeping......

    through and through getting time
    bombs beeping for massive show

    what do you know

    Thanks for bringing this back j'hiah. There's plenty that we don't know, and what we do know is scary as.....Causes one to ponder.

    I wanted to reply to this piece, but wanted to say more than just "tyte scrybe".
    So I went to look up Gettysburg on google and i found that the startingpoint of that battle was on the same day that slavery got abolished in Surinam. You see, I know little about American history, but ofcourse a lot about my own history, but I want to know all about "world" history.

    This piece really intrigued me, cause it questions our behaviour.

    There is so much going on
    There is so much we don't know,
    there is so much we choose to ignore.

    I'm gonna say it anyways...."tyte scrybe". :D

    greets moham

    p.s. if anyone gets a chance to tell me who Kevin Cheatum was. I would really appreciate it.
