Tuesday, February 9


I hate to be the barren of bad news,
But your mind is seriously confused;
There is no White or Black coastline,
It is just America – our countryside.

It is a place
   Where one can be free
- Or -
   Live caught up
   In the propaganda machine
   That divides like the ax to the tree,
   Producing slaves bending at the knee:
       Buying the lie that freedom is free,
       Without any personal responsibility.
