Premium Member No Longer Rule By The Gun

Okay people, let's close the gap
Let leaders know, won't tolerate this crap
The time has come
No more rule of the gun
Just love and happiness brothers, that's a rap

Premium Member tombstones

in cemetery quietness				
tombstones rap
epitaphs of those
they are paid to represent…

on the outside arena
of the living
there are many of those
wearing and boasting
tombstones of life…

shiny clothes
worn in winter
and thin by hunger
that infuses the bellies
of their children…all
carrying newspaper-blankets
for bus stop benches…
above their heads

Why Me?? 

I was flying above the clouds like a fairy with shiny wings
And was talking to the rising moon like a little pheasant 
When my mother woke me up from my dream 
To have breakfast with my favorite cream

I battled against the depression even though there was so much aggression, but now my confession is that I have love from others who care.

Premium Member 1990'S BEAT NICK
Much I marveled the stereo rap
Fallow falling into civil traps
My mind always strays to ghetto
Remembering many sound, fatherless folk
They are perfumed from unseen yoke
What could there be more purely woke?
Where’s my money yo!
I felt obliged to not admire the folk

friday thoughts
There's the
In the corner
Strumming on his guitar
Singing of the
Good ol 2000's songs
Shaking his head
At the recent rap reps
The golden eyelet
Etched on
There's the emo girl
In all black
Tapping furiously
On her laptop
Emailing any
That would take her
Her sighs can
Be heard from the
Other side of...Read More

It Will Never Be Enough
They claim that you were ‘outdated,’
old-fashioned and ‘not with the times,’
because you hesitated to
give up traditions of your kind.
They claimed new was always better,
that you weren’t on history’s side.
You noticed their way rarely worked,
“Reactionary!” they all cried.
Your life already had...Read More

National Treasures no 1 Dame Judy Dench inna ragga MC stylee innit
Dame Judy Dench
Loves to fish for Tench
When she fixes her motor
She uses a wrench
If she’s feeling tired she sits down on a bench,
DJD is polylingual;
Her favourite language is French,
When she has a pooh in the morning
It causes a stench
DJD is...Read More

Faster Faster

Catcalls in the alley turn into bursts of signal strength
Stretching all the way to the great beyond
Why do some still feel like we don't belong?

While thoughts are churning
The wagon wheels are turning

Not the reverse long jumper
There's no one else
not even myself

Always short of short

Blue Light Bulbs and a Bottle of Bleach and The Incandescent Must Win -part 2
“Deep, deep, deep. Listen and hear our faint gait.
Sanitation, fluorescent lights, and a PC pillow for smother.
Agree! Agree! Atone! Suck it in and suff-o-cate.
White-ness. Black. Ev’ry creed, faith, and color. Listen to Nanny State and call her your mother.”

Not going to pretend it
I've been feeling rejected
And disrespected
Nothing I said and did
Was effective
Time I take a sedative
Or maybe 10 of them

Was fine one minute then out the next second
THC, pharmaceuticals and alcohol ingested
For the pain, but it doesn't end...Read More

Not me said the cat...
