Spotlighting Pan-African Poetry

Biography

System of musical existence

Enlarge poem

It’s like the melody of truth is fading
Whilst the rhythm of decadence is violently progressing
Economic notes and political tones silently controlling states
Pitching wars, violent echoes from destruction walls
the music from the World’s boombox

But Lucifer is musical and the devil is he
Who’s been making music good enough for Adam to swallow
He has already made his band so he is better than diddy

He’s got, the anti-Christ on leading vocal, religion on backings focusing on rules
but leaving the kingdom stagnant
Got racism playing keyboards keeping black and white keys in conflict
When on the real it’s just one keyboard producing one sound
Satanic thinking, diseases, sex and drugs are the four basic strings to his bass guitar
Got corruption strumming acoustic, governments falling
He uses poverty, mismanagement and greed as percussion
As for genres he plays everything from
Afro-ignorance, gay and lesbian-rock, prostitution-pop and pornography jazzHis mission is to keep us dancing
But God is music and the whole idea of salvation is that Jesus could be the soundtrack of your life
He doesn’t need a band, He’s got a host of angelic orchestra
As for genres he plays the majors that is the way the truth and the life
As for sub-genres he plays everything, from redeemer, healer and anything you might so want genre
He has made a 66-track double cd album for you
That as long as time remains you will always have good music to dance to
Check what you are nodding to for this world is a system of musical existence

Featured Poem:

A place I have been

Enlarge poem

I have been to a place where the corn is always ripe
But the fields are never open
Where governments have built systems on luciferian doctrine
It’s a place where Zion enjoys intercourse with Babylon

It’s a place like Sodom, philosophy built on street wisdom
Get the money then the kingdom
A place where children are birthed and never fathered
Here people sharpen gifts and not character
Don’t judge me by the words I have spoken
It’s just a place I have been

Here I have seen leaders walking and followers running
It’s a place where many follow signs and very few follow substance
A place where bread never becomes substance for the eater
And the so-called mature cannot feed on bones
Here truth is married to tradition and the children are fathered by traditional

Don’t get me twisted I don’t hate this place because I was saved from it
So judge me not by the words I have spoken
It’s just a place I have been
