Numb

Perilous times have come, that’s what he said to me.

Days are but dreams, headlines are now a bed to me.

Grief and pain are like oxygen, peace is now dead to me.

What’s a warrior to his reflection if bull ish gives the lecture?

We die daily, not to sin but for the sake of being….here

As tears tear hearts, time’s words are stuttering to a whisper

Martin Luther or Malcolm?

The reformation shall be digitised.

Contact lenses become arm’s length embraces

Blue screen is cool if you can get it

We burn as charcoal, silently burning whiter than white

Why is it always so black and white?

Killing grounds we traverse as sacrifices in waiting.

What’s denial of our differences?

For the answer ask Rachel

We can’t remove our makeup!

Matter is an atom so where’s the thought for black lives

A hashtag is all that resides

We speak until we’re blue rarely reaching the bluest eyes

I’m living black going blue inside

Bos’n What?

Boston

They caught them
They caught them

Caught the suspect
Now they’re being sus pecked
Are they sure they did it?

Lying in a boat under a tidal wave of outrage
In the backyard where the law’s come to play
Are they sure they did it?

What happened to being dark skinned?
What happened to being Saudi
Maybe still a muslim
What is it about them

Worst since 9/11 or just Oklahoma?
Even if they didn’t do it they’re about to catch law coma
Are we bout to lose sight of drones in Iran
Tyrannical glaucoma
Bed time for bad news
Would all chechens disown em?

Who did they work for?
Surely they’re not alone
America wins again
Straight to DVD or will it blow the rest out of the market for silver screen and real gaming
Are North Korea going to laugh and take another aim
Pop a warning flare just to up the game
Who’s got the bigger muscle
was this simply you’ve been framed

I don’t know
Have you any doubts in tow
On back of what I see there can only be death row
They’ll be in their own boat
Unmarked 6 under
Which country will this be another excuse to plunder?

Will they drone strike all 50 states
Or those with an immigrant face
Will blacks and arabs get a pass
Or will they resume service another day?

For the families of the victims and the injured I pray
Never forgetting millions more die in bomb blasts every day
They wont get the rolling headlines
Or even a headstone
In a war on hate, my love reaches out alone

They were kings for a day, then died on the throne
Does the American Dream still exist
Being taken out by your own?

Lonely Are the Brave

Lonely are the brave,

 David was a single man

Married to the stones throw

Took liberty with a single hand

Obama has no spin for now

Behold us home on foreign land

I dream of fish

The anthem of the underground

Lives of others are our own

Freedoms lost to symbols in the sand

 

The roar of advertising hoards

The scent of hounds caught

Colour blind gentiles wishing they thought

Fox prophets not Mayans forethought

Forefathers forewarned

You play in the NDAA asking who dropped the ball?

Drink to Change Y’all

Rewind, reframe, he promised change Y’all

He brought change y’all

You sliced the turkey he  gave your rights away  Y’all

Happy New Years Day…Nah

 

Let the globe fall in Times Square

Cos Time’s square

Made your bed you better lie there

You might die there

1.5 million background checks in six days?

Civil war on the horizon, no more crime there

Fewer people owning more guns

No mention of hip hop are they high there?

Cheap rhetoric  woven like denim in wool clothing

The island is now the Octagon you’re in a fight there

Paid off the bill of rights like a poker debt

Goodnight Terror Hello Education

Soundtrack to the Struggle

Low key abomination

  

My insides out sight

Live amongst web sites

Detain and kill poet

I’ll take a shot to the head write

Paralytic insight

Everybody has their price tag

I’m just trying to be lead right

Bullets cost privacy

We got to be dressed right

So much food for thought

Who wants to be fed right?

 

Chess Boxing and Politics

Idolatry frivolities

Mixed race Mixed Messages

It’s in his nature no apologies

Slanderous sugar sweetens coffee cups

Jihad is everywhere

Who told you not to give a F***

Bank rolled you to give it up

Great Land of America have your balls shrivelled up?

Have you learned to zip it up?

Little Britain I ain’t started yet

America stopped saying suck?

NDAA hockey game

Human rights are the puck

 

Oh the Land of the Free………and the Home….of the ……Brave
