Black Void / Positive Space I

Welcome to Nightmerica/ land where we need to send butterflies/ out with bulletproof vest/ On along with the best of arms.

Fuck it though/ distorted anatomy/ gun where the mind should be

Mommy told me/ ver-batium/ if these niggers, crackers, spics, or any piece of shit/ corner and then clack you/ they could never take away the weapon inside of you. Beautiful.

9-11 flyer/ Imagine day after/ Explainin’ we pray to the same god/ It’s words that’s the enemy/ ‘Terrorist’ terrorizes the terrorists, says my linguistics professor/ Shyd/ Until no one knows what the fuck terror is.

Can’t escape the dark fallacies. / stuck in a circle/ trying to use the hands of the clock/ and strangle time out of the time./ Militant as the dreamer was, wit’ DiCaprio lucidity creeper dig deeper/ Trek with the War Stars

And black out in black space/ Glitch in the matrix/ Motherlovin’ Zombie Anomaly/ Brain in a vat theory/Intelligent hunger satiate/ You are what you eat?/ Ouroboros, first law of empathy (ubuntu). 

I’m still Zhuangzi/ ‘Mist of false awakenings/ Proclaim emancipation?/ Patiently awaiting slavery ending/ 

If that’s not enough/ Gotta fight off white Prison-privileged-industrial-savior complexes/ Indoctrination hideous complexion/ what you say then to kids trapped in/ Darker skin, bigger noses, fatter lips, courser hair/ Hear, hear; there, there/ Assimilate and pull ya pants up, or/ Nothin to fear, but fear itself/ President or present tense/ Somebody didn’t listen/ Mist of blurred vision false religion/ Post racial, society - / Laugh hardily.

Straight through the kufi, yamak-ule, crucifix/ Spiddle-spit that wudu/ Who knew kafir ignostic Buddhist/ Present, would come, past terrorist/ Haha, jk, more like — used to be Sufi-Catholic, but still lick shots dome aimed/ consciousness shalom/ That’s just me history though 

Philosoph out the cave/ Don’t know how to behave/ Tell me who’s the savages/ Dumpin’ on your vantage point/ Panic, manic-depressant, ADHD/ Obsessive compulsive, paranoid/ Schizoid. Pick one/ Loop in malnutrition, underemployment/ Employ the violence/ What kind of choices is this

Marred by the deluge of the afore/mentioned. Swim in the bullshit/ Or envision Malcolm in the window-mirrored/ Memories infinite digress. Be the AK-/ Forty-seven minus five/ Ghandi / Glide through the universe/ Spaceship aquarium 2020/ Starfish constellation/ Diamond in the front, Lucy in the sky/ Bang this in your system fly/ Fly this your system. Bang! / Crumble your biased predisposition, pick your self up, grab the double-pump-missile-launcher-taser /

Similar, but more like, Peaceful disobedience civil/ Excuse the prior war-ish imagery/ Though battling passively is not battling inequality/ For the offspring of strange fruit/ Sow new seeds so / Rainbows can jump-rope with useless nooses/ Nuisances sleeping in a foxhole cozy, cuz/ We fight insomniac with canon blow a hole in the future for all the youth to grow/ Black, brown, white, red, blue/ Man. Hit the snooze. Let’s Go.
