TAKE MY GUNS, TAKE MY LIBERTY! (POEM )

image

WE NEED TO TAKE YOUR GUNS

THE GOVERNMENT SAID SO INNOCENTLY

SO SAFE AND WITHOUT VIOLENT CRIME SOCIETY WILL BE

WE WILL PROTECT YOU AND ENSURE YOUR SAFETY

THE GOVERNMENT POLICY PEDDLERS SAID TO MY FELLOW AMERICANS AND ME

YOUR TAXES WILL NOT GO UP

YOUR UPGRADED SECURITY IS ALMOST FREE

THE ONLY THING WE MUST DEMAND FROM THEE

IS THE MEAGER FEE

THAT WILL ONLY CONSIST OF YOUR PERSONAL LIBERTY!

MAMA DON’T LIE/PIMP SON:(POEM)

MAMA DON’T LIE

PAPA IS REALLY SICK AND PRETTY SOON HE IS GOING TO DIE

MAMA DON’T LIE

YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE PAYING BILLS

SO I WILL RECRUIT A TEAM OF HOES AND SEND YOU SOME MONEY TO GET YOU BY

MAMA I CAN’T LIE

AS WE PRAY AND WAIT FOR THESE HORRIFIC ECONOMIC TIMES TO PASS US BY!

THE RENT IS PAST DUE :(POEM)

GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, CORRUPT POLITICIANS AND C.E.Os STEAL MY MONEY

IT’S SO MESSED UP

I ALMOST WANT TO LAUGH

BUT THE RENT IS A WEEK PAST DUE AND I HAVE NO MONEY

MY LIFE SO FAR HAS BEEN A JOKE BUT IT’S NOT FUNNY!

THE CORRUPT RICH (POEM)

LOSING EVERYTHING

THE POOR TO THE CORRUPT RICH

YET THEY CONTINUE TO VOTE FOR THEM

THE UNDERCLASS VOTING FOR RICH REPUBLICANS

IS LIKE FLIES EATING SHIT, EVEN THOUGH THEY HATE THE AFTER TASTE OF IT

YET THEY BLAME A HALF-BLACK PRESIDENT FOR THEIR MISFORTUNES, MAYBE ONE DAY I WILL UNDERSTAND THIS?

FROM THE GUTTER TO THE PROMISELAND:(POEM)

THE GUTTER IS WHERE I STAND, THE PROMISE LAND IS WHERE I STRIVE TO BE

WITH A MIND FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS

THAT I WANT TO MAKE REAL AND NOT JUST FANTASY

MY FOREFATHERS MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., MALCOLM X, KWAME NKRUMAH AND JERRY RAWLINGS, DECADES AGO FOUGHT FOR MY PEOPLE AND ME

BUT ALL I SEE IN THE STREETS IS THUGGERY AND GREED

EVEN IF I CAN’T SAVE ALL MY PEOPLE

I WILL MAKE SURE MY FOUR FATHERS DREAMS LIVE THROUGH ME

WE HAVE COME FROM THE SLAVE HOUSE, THE COLONIAL MASTER’S HOUSE, THE CRACKHOUSE AND NOW THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE

AND STILL I GET PROFILED BY COPS AND SECURITY WHEN I LEAVE MY HOUSE

EVEN THOUGH I WORK SMART AND STUDY LIKE AN INTELLECTUAL SPARTAN, YET SOCIETY STILL LOOKS AT ME JUST LIKE ANOTHER TRAYVON MARTIN

JUST LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BLACK MAN TO SHOOT, WALKING WHILE BLACK I GUESS WILL BE THEIR EXCUSE!image
