Stands Aside

As an American citizen knowledgable and empathetic about the corrupt policies the empire in which i reside enforces upon forign nations. And the millions of innocent lives lost then, now and in future times; I apologize.

The values on my empire, the culture of my empire, is pig shit. I accept no part of it. And i’d move, somewhere far away. But then i fear, one day, my government would find me and bomb me too.

Then again, even if i remained, they’d do it here too. Seems the safest place to res(h)ide is in the belly of the beast.

Debate of Elephant and Dokey and Star Eagle who Governed from Above

In the time before man rose to dominance.
Earth was ruled by the beasts.
Steadfast stallions galloped the plains.
Dastardly dolphins skipped the seas and
Skies were full of murder.
It was a season of purity.
A time of myth and legend.
It was the age of Tooth and Claw.

The Fuck Shit Setup

Like i said man, its a setup
Make employment hard
For the working class
Make good condoms
(unaffordable) expensive af
So common man got no choice
But preggo & disease
All these MDs
Just pimps with degrees

Wish more people organized
With they free time
‘Stead of fuckin
We’d get cheaper condoms
Cheaper healthcare
Cheaper everything
But mulfuckas be on sum fuck shit
All night long

Dear Mr. Hightower

Earlier today while doing some Spring cleaning with my Pa, i stumbled upon some of my antiqutated journals. Randomly opening the page to a tattered, black, book, its spine held together only by ligaments of string, i found a heart felt letter i am compelled to share. To anyone listening. This letter means a lot to me because they are the words of my friend who is no longer here with me. He wasn’t that great at writing but i was so i helped him uut on paper the words he hed in his heart.

Dear Steve Harvey,

My name is Cantrell. I am a student at Stephenson Middle School.I am in the 8th grade and going to the 9th next year. I was listening to the radio one day when I heard you talking about Tavis Smiley and Cornel West.

The conversation confused me cuz I like all 3 of you guys and don’t understand why you guys are fighting each other. It hurts me to see the man I grew up knowing as Mr. Hightower at odds with other strong, positive, intelligent black men who I discovered in y teen years like Dr. Cornel West.

I know that you have millions of fans & you’ll never see this letter but I really hope you do because while most kids had dads, I didn’t. Watching your show as a kid helped instill in me the ethics & respect I needed to become a man. In a way, you were like the father I never had.

One day I hope to meet you in person to shake your hand and tell you how much of an inspiration you’ve been to me but until then, my birthday wish today is for all the black men role models to stop fighting each other and unite like Puff & Snoop did on your show. To show the younger generation how its done.
