August 2008


i wish i could say i’ve been around the globe and seen many places/
but i haven’t lived as long as some and still¬† seen plenty faces/
i hope to embrace different races with open arms and similar hearts/
maybe the question i should be asking is on which continent do i start?/
do i seek the rolling hills of england singling out your birthplace/
or the edge of the golden gate bridge where we might feel the earth shake/
as we wait to sit with griots we got the wisdom of many past stories/
i know i have to escape the shadow of the maple leaf and old glory/
need to expand my horizons you never know maybe i could learn a thing/
i can’t wait til we are in norway one day and we will exchange our rings/

A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.
W. H. Auden

He also reps that LTS crew from LALAland.  Had to make my blog pretty with his pictures.

are we able to hide behind the image our reputation creates/
personally i hate that a few wrong moves can dictate your fate/
so don’t move in haste just wait it takes a bit of patience/
but i’ve been waitin since 9/11 to see the truth of the masons/
now my wit’s been wasted hitched on the back of my dying soul/
as i see way to many die below the poverty line buying hope/
they just stay high to cope as the police still be eyeing folk/
i’m a nice guy i know you have thoughts these are just mine i wrote/
commiting sins i think but the crimes are few and far between/
we still be killing the world with cars it seems as i harbour screams/
you make it hard to dream and you shatter what little remains/
bush and hitler flow through the same vein we can’t maintain/
a one world party system we need to put their doctrines too shame/
most of us aren’t opting for change we are just to lost in the pain/
misguided by this broken debate between the likes of good and evil/
try to see the good in people who praise god and behold the steeple/
