Ground Zero (Poem)

Ground zero in the pyramid piques a lucid revelation When the breadth of what you know extends to the realm in front of you No news of wars and violence No rumors of what’s to come No memes inciting chaos No ads to rip you off Just a little bit of intrigue to proliforate your insight into what it takes to manifest a change within your reach

Dawn of a New Day (Lyrics)

Oh
What a notion
Giving more than what you take me for
Greed is at your front door
In the back is all you won’t say

Harlem Get Up (Poem)

What’s that smell?
I just ate my vomit

Don’t look now
Here comes Harlem

“Excuse me Mrs.
Can you spare some change?

“Excuse me Mrs.
Can you spare some change?

Coffee?
A donut?
Some soup from the Chinese?

I’m hungry
And tired
And living in hell

Please pay the toll when you come where I dwell…”

The Masquerade (Poem)

This system has failed us.
Why are the highs so low?

Just look at all the stars above
Flashing shiny things at the world they loathe

Slavery is so fascinating
It’s the price we pay to fill a bottomless void

No Tellin (Lyrics)

There’s no tellin
Why I can’t look you in your eyes

You tell me something
But I can’t see the truth in your lies

I’ll get through, But
Right now your ignorance is your fall

You take all, But
Your all is never what you give all

So tell me something
Why you can’t do what you say what you gonna do?

Go do you then
I’ll hit back
Get that
Bitch I’m a do you in

The Landfill (Poem)

If I’m a piece of trash
Then you’re the landfill in which I reside
Festering in the stench of all the bones you hide

No telling one hole or one mess from another
No way to assess the distress
So why bother?

Throw me out and watch me rot
Rape my soul for all I’ve got

Level my plot and bury me under
Masquerade for all your blunder

Pay the toll
Forget the cost
Pass the blame for all we lost

A piece of trash is minuscule
Compared to all the filth in you
