justice system…

race based procedures
to maintain poor’s oppression
and white’s privileges

 

de fly (fly on me head)…

fly in me face
fly on me head
fly in me face
fly on me head
well i hope de fly don’t come out and land on me head tonight
well i went out to de debate
and i’m feelin’ a little spaced
and i sit down at the stage desk and
a fly lands on me head
well de fly come down from de farm
you see he wait just off stage
when he hear that i’m telling a lot of bull
de fly land on me head
fly on me head
fly on me head
well i hope de fly he don’t come out
and land on me head tonight
de fly he like foul things
all the children know that
what i need to know from de lord
is how you get de truth from liars
they say liars never win
and truth will show all sins
but what i am afraid of is
that he got another plan
to hide more things…

Based on De Bat (Fly In Me Face)” a song from Carly Simon’

an abundance of caution…

the seeds of hatred
beneath the nation’s soil
need only warm blood
to bring forth the rotting corpse
of injustice to full bloom

 

herd immunity…

group resistant to
the rule of law and justice
because of their badge

 

presidential debates…

after picking up
office documents
i needed
to
work
from home
i saw
the brown bag prophet
and
asked
if
he planned
to
watch the presidential debates
the prophet
said
i believe it was
james baldwin
that
turned the phrase
masturbatory delusion
which
clearly delineates
what
the president
will demonstrate
in
the upcoming debates
especially
if
his previous
incoherent
self-indulgent
jabberwocky sessions
are
representative
so
i’d
rather not
take part
in such
a voyeuristic exhibition
of
pathological lying
anyway
this isn’t some
high school speech contest
where
the winner
gets
a blue ribbon
for
the best performance
in
utilizing
stage entertainment techniques
we’re talking about
someone
who will wield
enormous worldwide power
so
basing
a decision
of
who to vote for
as
a result
of
three recitations
seems
quite foolish
to
me

 

scotus….

corpse still in its bed
when looters entered chambers
seeking what’s precious
greed’s stench was upon their hands
as they pried off freedom’s ring

 

mr barr…

(Edited Public Domain by Tia Dufour)

only one person’s
shown criminal sedition
he’s in the white house
so why not do your duty
and lock up the real traitor

 

barabbas …

murderous traitor
count the dead in this nation
how can anyone
that claims that there is a god
crucify the innocent
instead of the beast
do they long to bathe in blood
that of our children
or of those too poor to beg
for their god’s mercy
are silver coins of greed’s realm
worth denying sacred words
will the holy bed
be soiled with the putrid
lies of one man’s lust
or will the faithful remove
each bloody nail from faith’s hands

 

not that it’s my business…

tell me
mister christian
if
it were your
wife
daughter
or
child
groped
and
raped
by
the president
would
you
be
as forgiving
as
you’ve
been
so far
freely
supporting
the evil
that’s been
done
to others

 

garland of freshly cut tears…

placed upon the street
love’s silent testimony
dried salty white wreath
left by a grieving mother
oblation to freedom’s god
