This 4th of July, remember the truth about founding fathers, and their prescient warnings about income inequality
Many of America’s Founders believed that excessive wealth inequality would be incompatible with having a representativ…
On the edge of a chariot, there was a child spitting fire at his enemies.
As his sweats burn through his skin, he kissed his maker with a burn lip
Evil has a beginning and at times the ending suffers a faith similar to that of Judas.
It is a story of monumental agony causing certainty to exist…
The devil have rights fighting for building blocks.
Especially watching cross peck the flesh of demons
Bringing forth that sweet, sweet taste that causes your tears
to be as hot as magma
Melting the fleshes of the soul, smothering thy conscience with fool’s
You can’t breath
Vital fluids oozing out a foolish person mouth from two head
wounds, birthing chaotic theories within body tissues
At world’s end, scripting scenes, showcasing myths and legends
Escaping dreams only to be caught up again in nightmarish events
I must fly with no directions
Shall I spread my wings
SPEAKING TO BIG RED IN TONGUES
I fear not evil but men ambitions since Genesis
Bloody truth buried ,leaving behind a bloody trail that lead
the heart to stress
A heart attack!
Knock! knock! knock! knock!
Death knocks while heaven waits
Heavens gate lock
I don’t let time past
I keep up with it.
I skipped that passage,
With a message to occupy
like a shock from a defibrillator
You want peace, I’ve got your pacemaker
Peacemakers can’t exist without war cries
So I let time fly
As I wait like an assassin that flies
Just beyond the clouds
Just a fly avoiding the fly swatter,
A squatter took a nice dump around the corner
Dumping his life altercations on broad
Street is his home, as we stare down from the clouds,
hoping not to get motion sickness
Now on Broadway, afraid of breaking my legs.
