We Hurt

11/9 is nothing but unusual
Tears and all black at America’s funeral
Somber procession through the streets of my city
While the south treat their sheets in bleach with no pity
Who’ll let the white majority condemn the minority?
Touting hate, fear and violence as the benchmarks of authority
They claim to own possession of the land that we stole
Yelling at the masses to sit quiet and know their role
And the cracks in the path stain pain in the mud
But there’s love in my people that flows thicker than blood

Come to the Rap Concert 

Hold a candle light vigil to who you were before the tranformation
I forgot when I go out of pocket blow the rocket burn elation
And did I tell you what I saw when I caught a glimpse of god
Nappy hair low lights raw people bone rock
It’s jazz it’s fast it’s formulating fleeting
It’s lost it’s found it’s searching finding its believing
Instruments in my rises and valleys
Find my way on the board while minutes form on chalk talleys
Let’s flame the money and go broke together
Denim jacket white tee can’t afford the the leather
But youre here…

Finding It

And and and find me lost, time tossed, too tied to the metronome
Finding life love happiness and the definitions of where we make home
This love is a take home embrace
A one love life drug find me in this place
So tell me I’m beautiful because I want to reciprocate
I always saw it in you we didn’t need that time to hesitate
Let’s cherry bomb mind and heart with this feeling
Splatter paint collective soul all across the ceiling
So I’ll play drunk night seraphim
If you’ll be the tigress with the saber tooth grin
Quiet dream demeaner
Stark naked out in front sleep prophet believer

He Wants To Hang The Artists

This to hold trial for a man who claims to represent our poetic spirit
This to stand in loud and unrelenting witness for the sins of the man we once revered as Cat
And I to bear witness to the fact that the man we know as Yusuf has broken my heart

Hate, hate, hate
unrelenting
In the name of your supposed day-drift deity
Claiming murder or something like it for the authors of modern exhalation
I’m finished with the pious, the respectful, the reverent, masked, do or die prophets
Fuck your fear mongering, fuck your false prophet promise and fuck your intention to tear away the strings of my connection, my deep seeded full breath of society FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU
I am whole
FUCK YOU I am the ephemeral well-guided friend of the lonesome many
FUCK YOU
I am the angel incarnate of the scared and sacred
FUCK YOU
I am
Your demon dream nightmare
I am the dark concept of your burned out American Dream
FUCK YOU
I am your jubilant smile pushing up your daisy,
FUCK YOU
Hate will not, and cannot rule
FUCK YOU
and your twisted, warped
notion of God…

Modern Man and the Search for Evil

We find enemies where we look for them
Monsters with different outlooks,
Staring back at the saints we know ourselves to be
Not everyone can be right, luckily we are the chosen few
The sanctified,
The beautiful,
The rich,
The fortunate,
Doing our best to save the similar
Fight off the evils that dwell in the unknown,
Terrified by the uncertainty with which we view our fellow man
There’s no time for peace
We are at war with those who stand in the shadows,
The great darkness we cast
Who can be bothered to stop and wonder,
If maybe they are afraid too?
