HAPPY JUNETEENTH

Red, black and green
PanAfricanist's dream

Celebrating Juneteenth
Hue mens set free

End of slavery
Or so it seems

Except the thirteenth
Has loopholes beneath

Shackles and chains
Today on our brains

Torment sustained
Epigenetic remains

So many slain
Soil is stained

Clinically insane
Pain retained

[2021] Vulture Culture

flying against the grain
of sunny dispositions

ready to dive in    
their downward dog-eat-dog †  
stormswept spiraling; †

in some circles, thriving †  
at the notion of you being †  
Dead meat! Dead meat!
---parroted, mindless  
meditative mantra †

begging contrast, high-lighting †  
that you are very much †
alive and kicking †
unscathed by such zingers †
sewn in lightning stitches †
amplifying your thunder †
they meant to steal; †
†  
a folie a deux fail †
at foiling you  
†

Afghanistan's reckoning

 
Was this the war of faith, the infidel with his white face?
for zealot's on the back of trucks,
our courtship's cost,
for all the might, and frenzied pluck.
 
The drones without a conscience struck,
the warlords, did not care a fuck.
Each, stood as adversaries, chess pieces played,
the populous were killed and slayed.
 
But as Covid played its hand.  
Trump declared "the loss to great and its demand"
Sound the bugle's clarion retreat,
to pack our bags, exit and leave.
 
Return, the middle age of cruelty
oppression, to target innocence, the man upon the street.
All those that sought a better life,
the dream that died, left incomplete
 
Just the wreckage, war winds blow,
the refugee's, desolation standing in a row.  
For we just washed our hands
and left without a bow.
 
Shame carved, on each white headstone
memorials for the young and brave.
For prayers and tears, the gaping holes.
Those loved, and never coming home
 
With ideologies at odds, to depart with injured pride
Futility, counted as the final cost.
The coin of freedoms pocket robbed
vultures picked, all that remained alive

[ C-19 ] Category 7

     
Body count increased † † †
along the receding shore † † †
as flood waters rose † † †
†† † †
Murky as its origins were † † †
( although Climate Change † † †
remains a top contender ) † † †  
it became painfully clear † † †
this was unlike any hurricane † † †
ever contended with; † † †
† † †  
delt a savage blowing to Humanity † † †
† † †  
Yet, despite our knowing † † †
more was likely in store for us; † † †
we as a species remained at risk †† † †  
† †
While access to fresh oxygen † † †
via masks improved our odds † † †
of surviving wave after wave † † †
until the manmade levies † † †  
were finally in place . . . †  
†† † †
the flooding continued  

. . . threatening each neighbor † † †  
up and down The Block † † †
due to gaps in The Wall † † †
left by The Resistance † † †
† † †  
The Right was indeed theirs † † †
in their chosen refusal to wear † † †
masks when socializing or working† † †  
dragging not just those in proximity † † †
but EVERYONE down † † †  
deeper into the water † † †
causing it to needlessly rise † † †
resulting in necessity † † †
of the very wall † † †
they now wail against; † † †
† † †  
many drowning in the process † † †
clinging to their shot guns † † †

This is not a science fiction story; † † †
it is " a l l e g o r y "† † †
† † †  
As global killers go † †  
it may still become † †  
a Category 7 hurricane †
†† † †
the disaster already in the making †
†† † †
which can still be avoided † † †
† †  
but only if you choose † † †  
to lay down your guns † † †
aimed away from yourself  
and other potential survivors  
and do your part † † †
† † †  
† † †

[2021] As the list of cold cases to shelve continues growing

 
It's the hottest topic of 2021  
next to Climate Change  
a Capitol Building overthrowing  
Covid vaccination mandates  
and freeing Britney Spears.  

As far as current events ongoing  
it has all the breaking news bulletin †
points adding up into a media  
feeding frenzy phenomenon  
we haven't seen in years.  

She was  

▪ young --- twenty-two years old, going on twelve  

▪ cute --- as a button  

▪ White  

And there's no dispute  
that her disappearance †
and death is a tragedy . . .  

but where was all of this human interest  
when it came to missing Indigenous †
and persons of Color?  




Right.

[2021] Rottenhouse

 
There isn't any situation necessitating † †
the roaming of a school's hallway † †
with a gun † †
† †  
You may not be considered an † †
"active shooter" † †
based on the notion a single round † †  
has yet to be discharged from the AR-15 †
rifle you're lugging around at the ready †  
in first person, Playstation fashion † †
† †  
but it's a safe bet † †
given where you are at † †
that your intentions are evil † †
†  
Furthest thing from †  
a Russian Roulette spin †
---only a matter of time † †  
before classmates who are † †
in your opinion †  
worthy of being shot † †  
end up tripping your trigger † †
finger's circuit breaker † †
to a brain once capable † †
of making more intelligent † †
choices † †
† †  
Otherwise, †  
you'd likely be in the basement bedroom bunker † †  
getting laid by your pump action barrel hand † †
while masturbating to Ted Nugent tirades † †
as Mama upstairs watches Wheel of Fortune † †
† †  
Such is just a hypothetical scenario in which †  
you might get away with a wrist slap † †
and backpats from America's mentally-ill- † †
yet-still-legally-allowed-to-vote-and-carry- † †
firearms, but . . . † †
† †  
during that chaotic, dark night † †
when you killed two people † †
and wounded another? † †
† †  
In your militia's aim to justify † †  
having the deadly weapon † †
it was blatantly obvious † †
what was in your heart; † †
† †  
you wore it on your sleeve † †
† †

[ RAP ] "Let's go, Brando!"

they angrily chanted in diatribal fashion   † † †
waving hashtag anointed spears † † † † † †
as if waterboarding oars † † † †  
high above their heads † † † † † †  
leftover from Free Britney rallies † † † † † †
still wild donkey skewing sharp. † † † † † †  
† † † † † †  
And he fled the Internets altogether † † † † † †
faster than my 5G Verizon connection † † † † † †  
could keep pace with, so as to live † † † † † †  
and return to fight another day † † † † † †
with his peculiar brand of poetry. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
"Too many Quarantine Zones!" † † † † † †  
Brando declared as he folded his limbs † † † † † †
assuming a fatalistic fetal position inside † † †  
the War Machine's MAGA t-shirt cannon. † † † † † †
"It's not safe for colorful people † †
like me anymore!" † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
Before his grand expulsion into the night † † † † † †
he abandoned to me a squeegee still dripping † † † † † †
with the residual spunk of his digicality; † † † † † †
footprints wiped clean away on the † † † † † †
You're-Not-Welcome † † † † † †  
mat. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
That's the last I saw of the artist † † † † † †
formerly known as Randon. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
He was a'mole'whacked into temporary exile. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
His curse words were bleeped from every data † † † † † †
log, obelisk, totem pole, and pylon. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
And he wasn't kidding either. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
Circle circle dot dot coms † † † † † †  
of unvaccinated blatherdom † † † † † †
had erupted concentrically † † † † † †  
along the lunatic fringes † † † † † †  
of the Circle of Online Life. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
Facebook itself was fucked † † † † † †  
with rightwing dildoes. † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
The fibre optic network was teeming † † † † † †  
with deranged looking, hygiene deficient † † † †
hobo-men grown from a DNA † † † †  
cocktailed c'obama'nation † † † † † †  
meant to repopu'lace the Earth † † † † † †
with deadly hybridizations † † † † † †
of Steve Bannon and Alex Jones † † † † † †  
wannabes. † † † † † †  
† † † † † †  
The Cyber Cloptic cylonesque horde † † † †
with its nicked assortment of idioms † † †  
more idiotic than nifty was piling on † † †
in a mass culture cancellation † † † † † †
of everyone deemed "woke" or "karen" † † †
†or . . . † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
. . . well, † † †
there's too many brilliant nicknames † † † † † †  
listed in the Emperor's bulletproof glass
housebound Plexicon to mention; † † † † † †
needless to say † † † † † †
† † † † † †  
the purging of humanity was underway. † † † † † †

Coven of roaches about to get crushed

A band of lowlifes
Witches and rejects
All sucking the dick of their own bullshit
Sniffing their farts like itís a bottle of Creed
Lying through their misery
Envious of the innocent, helpful, and pure
Their masks are endless
like the accounts they cycle through
Waitresses and waiters
Donít have nothing better
Nothing going on in their simple boring lives
Then to fuck with others
And try to destroy anotherís light
And write endless shitty poetry
On DUP
How foolish
Darkness always runs from light
But this light burns the brightest
You failed at extinguishing it
So slither out from under your rocks your filthy cowards
Itís time to meet your Maker
One by one
Angels of war will hunt you down
And take care of business
Roaches only run when they know the shoe is coming
And this God sized shoe is one you canít outrun

Not exactly global as far as current events go, but it is relatively current and could be classified as an event.

"A certain peace"

Warring armies made to fight neither side nor persuasion
That peoples remain divided by their social organizations
As the internationalist conflict special market movements
Single press is made to spin on two frauds of inducement,

By utilizing front populaire to suppress private commoner
Rotten social climber values do then emblazon in dominer
Determined mind's common mysteries covering the tricks
Here unholy feeding poison to abide hunger of the cliques,

Now down to the wire sloganeers, hence ignorant totality
Knowing not history of their country nor the world reality
Still to know nothing of philosophy as a past song unsung
Raising petty ambition made upon such fluttered tongues,

Given into delirium since but a pawn for this global game
As these hidden ruler's pieces slide into place by no fame
Complicated and simple net wrapping their world in links
Humbuged ideas spread everywhere to control as a jynx,

A false doctrine upon the ancient tower of secular worlds
Mental pimp pushing people towards life and death whirl,

To obtain that certain peace...
But only their peace...

Injustice system

Brandon supporters are now enabling pedophile Nazi tyrants to rule
The DOJ and FBI have been weaponized into woke supremacy mules
Eliminating all that do not bow and then suck off global agenda rites
Americana ass rape through murderous Antifa street thugs by night,

Legal activist ignore leftist sin then manufacture crimes of the people
So a country destroyed from within by champagne anarchist sheeple
Shutting down all energy independence into a totally dependent land
Releasing 80 billion in military supplies onto beheading terrorist sand,

Allowing cartels to child and drug traffic across the border, no refrain
So intentionally crippling supply chains to then bock and laugh insane
Suppressed free speech and digital book burning as to squash dissent
Changing this free country to nothing but Bolshevik police state intent.

The freedom merry go round has broken down and all lament...

[ Politics ] String Theory and the Spirit Molecule

 
Stolen presidential elections  
despite Republican leaders saying,  
Not  

QAnonsense like pedophile cabals  
of celebrities and Democrats  
that Trump will exorcise upon return  
during a Second Coming prophesied  

Conspiracy theories  

aside from empowering individuals  
subscribing to their own powerlessness  
into becoming explosive critical massess  
such as was witnessed January 6th  

are the Devil's way of giving you balls  
of string to occupy your idle hands  
eager to do the Lord's work  

when you've got too much time  
on them and not enough facts  
rapturing your brain towards  
common sense conclusions  

spiriting your faith based  
holy †
Hallelujah!  
moly  
cules into physical action

[ Politics ] 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

 
On the 6th of Jan
televised, the sham
a bigly in-your-face scam
fleeced with sub'flim'inal flam
orchestrated by a rotter
damn swamp fillin politician
so lackin in confidence;
man refusing to concede
his place in history
by riling up a fan base
of idle worshippers
