‘Which Way?’

Which Way Will You Turn?

A sample from Book 2

  Which Way?
 
america's constitution
sets country laws
not school-house rules
 
it is without flaw
making
no man a fool
 
helping
everyone to see
who they want
to be
 
its our working judicial claw
our law-making stool
 
we must take the raw
without shaping
for a people's mood
 
to slowly creep
from this employ—  

for personal awe
falling
into greed's drool
 
of corporation paw
becoming
a string-held mule
its fundamentals
will begin to seep
 
know the deed—
constitutional seats
weren’t meant
for advancement’s need
 
america's judiciary jaw
corruption’s draw
drowning
in today's money-seeking pool
 
all’s a binding seesaw
living in material awe
 
americans must leap
stand...speak
bring this third branch
back to its knee
reenter the path
of being free

‘Lost Focus’

You Need To Take Action Instead of Complain!

A sample from Book 2

 Lost Focus
 
each other we don't see
we'd rather—
x-box, play station
cell phone, internet, tv
political wrongs
we don't see
our lives so neat
can roam any street
buy any type of meat
a nice bed to sleep
 
words we easily believe
whoever can lead
trusting any deceit—
they wouldn't lie to me
 
losing rights we don't see
our house, our car
our bling, our clothes
we're still free
 
the reality of it
we don't see
people shunned—
when they speak
opposition—
running deep
each dollar taken—
we're less free
 
our lost faith
we don't see
every commercial, every show
every movie
God's† words are missing
 
the seven deadly sins we seek
without seeing our feed
our endless material need
we've fallen
to gluttony’s greed
 
without admitting our deceit
embarrassing flee
a selfish need
a self-centered plea
we've fallen
to pride's heed
 
without ourselves to be
for all eyes to see
for elite company
 
we've changed our dressing
preventing riot's heat
a willing lie—
we've told indeed
we've fallen
to covet's plea
 
without covering our need
power we desperately seek
to prove we're better than He†
willing to deceive
satisfying this self need
we've fallen
to lust's creed
 
without understanding Thee†
taking what's free
refusing to see
we've fallen
to anger's deed
 
without a wondering seed
hurting without grief
striving for more publicity
trying through deceit
anything for the better seat
we've fallen
in the trap of envy
 
without standing to speak
or expressing in ink
without researching
truth's creed
by-passing the hard road
to seek
without an honest need
to give a heart-filled speech
without taking the lead
to keep freedom free
we've fallen
in sloth's vining weed
 
our focus you see
lost down the wrong street
the seven deadly sins
we've already let lead
even if we don't believe
 
we have a chance
to reprieve
forgiveness He† does see
this individual intercede
can never be a we
in the end—
it's you and He†

‘Repeated-Unnoticed

Congressional Rent Is Overdue!

A sample from Book 2

 Repeated—Unnoticed
 
world lost in its pungency
to see through the prophesy
 
destruction of past democracy
just historical consistency
 
horrible...cramping pregnancy
perfect accuracy
unfaltering congruency
 
plague-corrupted bureaucracy
hidden world autocracy
wanting nothing but supremacy
 
global warming deficiency
u.s. presidential hypocrisy
brainwashing tendency
 
leading to inadequacy
without using necromancy
just a structured mobocracy
hidden world allegiancy
 
with a press’ proficiency

self-serving sufficiency
 
ratings improved by belligerency
quickened relentless policy
blindly led odyssey
not by contingency
 
american minds—

an easy absorbency
for their natural contumacy
 
media’s constancy

too much divergency
world-political diplomacy
focused blatancy
the world’s most powerful candidacy

civilization’s degeneracy

political lunacy

‘God’s† Clone’

There’s a Message Within Ourselves!

A sample from Book 2

 God’s† Clone
 
what’s on this altar
is it a human fault
something forgottenly sought
 
what has it brought
forgiven sin...it ought
forgiven all that’s naught
 
has it ever been caught
what’s still in doubt
can it even count
is there a fair amount
 
what’s on this altar
that’s so many have fought
without a second thought
 
what’s in its heart
minds become wrought
the wicked begin to haunt
 
does it ever want
those that won’t
 
listen to the sound
from your decorated mound
 
is it this altar
of wood, of cement, of glass
that we should halt
or should we opt
—a belief in a deeper bound
not easily seen or found
 
is it this altar
of flesh, of bone, of blood
that we should be taught
 
our I am crop
something readily found
always open and abound
 
this altar
dressed in candles
a lost handle
a fake mantle
this altar
the hidden am
the true lamb
God’s† very hand
surrounding every gland
 
the prayers come from inside
here’s where He† resides
listen...do not hide
the self you must abide
don’t cast it aside
hear His† screams
His† silent cry
 
this altar
this well-made am
each different
each from His† chosen brand
for a reason’s stand
for you to understand
at your own hand
open to your altar
not a stage built by man
inside human land
look deep
through spidery sand
yes!...a hard demand
 
you’re a destined plan
His† original am
no intentional damn
 
it’s you to deny
it’s you to be shy
it’s you to be sly
it’s you to criticize
it’s you to hypnotize
 
you are the altar
not of wood
—of bone
not of cement
—of flesh
not of glass
—of blood
 
you are the am
He† gave you no shame
through His† name
He† brings no fame
that’s in your frame
 
He† offers no strain
that’s from your strand
He† sends no pain
that’s what you bring
 
listen to your altar
hear its voice
it’s not just jumbled noise
He† gives you a choice
elevate your sense
give it a hoist

‘A Life to Vote’

Mandela: Whatever It Takes For Freedom!

A sample from Book 2

 A Life to Vote
 
twenty-eight years behind
a prisoned door
political ciaos
left a country sore
 
political service
single man's allure
youth groups for the poor
community organizations‒
his energy did pour
his writings
never a bore
 
released in 1990
a country's heart
he still wore
even with reasons before
 
a south african black
considered the whore
their votes
squashed
on the floor
 
that time lingered
no more
at age 75‒
his first vote
casted in 1994
not a single vote
the country tore
nelson mandela‒
became its commodore
as president
he did soar

‘The Passion’

Where Is the Passion For Christ?

A sample from Book 2

  The Passion
 
we live in a closed fear
our laugh a bit queer
He† died on the cross—
so we may not be lost
 
we build a big house
we’re not treated like a mouse
He† was beaten by a strap—
releasing us from our trap
 
we worship the almighty green
it matters how we are seen
His† skin fell from his body—
while they stood laughing
 
we spend wanting the best
who cares about the rest
His† mother watched her son—
evildoers had their fun
 
we ridicule the less fortunate—
breed cruelty and hate
His† skin soaked in blood—
hitting the ground...raging flood
 
we spit the hungry in the face
carrying around a can of mace
He† wore a crown of thorns—
so we can be reborn
 
how much more can we take
how much more can we fake
 
He† forgave us for our sin—
how many prayers can we lend

‘There’s Time’

Time Passes but Change Never Comes!

A sample from Book 2

 There’s Time
 
who the hell knows
what we have seen
it’s under a finer screen
 
a woman going in as president
is all a bunch of hoot
wait for the actions
—all those who’ll file suit
 
we sulk for all the disasters
rain, flood, fires
what about all those
who’ve become big fat liars
 
rumbling with gay rights
struggle flairs
with black authenticity
whatever happened
to american supremacy
 
liberal-waged fights
conservatives wage
our given rights
what happens when our enemies
change their site
 
letting mexicans in
‒free passage
now what about our tax hassle
 
our sign reads free medical
‒free education
ss card holders paying all taxation
 
turning celebrities
queens...kings
they are permitted to do...say
whatever they deem
 
sex, drugs, neglect, abuse
whatever the case
for them...it’s an open race
 
it doesn’t matter when teens
see this as free-will
opening fire
through any window seal
 
it doesn’t matter
when teen parents
throw baby across the room
fun’s better to hum
 
it doesn’t matter when song rappers
idolize the kill
to see how many records
they can sell
 
what kind of society
have we become
when father wants to be
just like his son
 
what have we done
when kids are empowered with rule
going to court to sue
when criminals kill...maim
—sue our courts for being lame
 
when schools
aren’t for educating the young
but for baby-sitting your son
 
when everyone should have a computer
general school yards‒
play grounds are fewer
 
what happened to family unity
peaceful...friendly communities
 
when did self-importance
become the norm
in getting it
we have the right to harm
 
who would have ever thought
a lack of caring could bring
our world to a halt
 
before 2007
too much rush, too much hush
 
beyond 2008
we need to slow down
stop being the clown
 
more honest government
less selfish people—
to start saving what we have
loose faith in this money fad
we’re losing the young
but it can be undone
 
stop wanting to be their friend
give them books
save them from sin
 
you have to be firm
if they’re going to learn
 
we have to turn
this trend around
we need to be firm
parents, teachers, priest‒
need to be sound
 
help gentle court
your laxed rule
toughen up
allow them to drool
 
if we don’t return
to our constitutional state
just say good-bye
it will be too late
 
we’ve only half crossed the line
we can catch it
just in time
 
o’come...mighty americans
this is more than a war of terror
most motives are interior
 
if we don’t fight this
state of reverse
more than soldiers will
be in the hearse
