(*MOTHERFUCKED)

YOU SHIT-FUCKERS!/
I DON’T BELIEVE THERE’S A GREAT WHITE WAY FOR ME…
I DON’T BELIEVE / I DON’T BELIEVE THERE’S ANY HOPE LEFT FOR ME…
I DON’T BELIEVE IN FORGIVENESS
FOR FREAKS/ I DON’T BELIEVE
IN A HIGHER POWER
GREATER THAN ME/…….
INSTEAD,
I BELIEVES EVERYTHING I SEES ON TV!
YES,
TV IS MY KIND OF REALITY
I CAN CONTROL IT AND ALL MY ANIMAL DESIRES,/
[MONEY-BACK-GUARANTEE !]
CONTROLLING ALL MY ANIMAL DESIRES BY DENYING THEM/
DENIAL
IS MY REASON FOR BEING/ YES
SWEET DENIAL IS
THE COLOUR OF MY SKIN, BABY! /
I AM CURRENTLY BEING
PUNISHED BY GOD FOR
BEING A SHAMELESS COCK-SUCKER
YA SCRUB FUCKING SHITFUCKERS
YOU MOTHERFUCKING BET
I’M A HAVING A BAD TIME OF THIS,
ALL THE TIME,
CUZ ALL MY TIME IS SPENT
BITCHING
AND IT IS ONLY I WHO HAS BEEN TRULY
MOTHERFUCKED
ONLY I.
ONLY I.

I BITCH
BECAUSE I’M NOT GETTING ANY PANTY
AND NOT GETTING ANY PANTY MAKES ME MEAN !

I HATE
BECAUSE IT’S CHEAPER
THAN REALITY/
EVEN CHEAPER THAN ANYHING I EVER
SAW ON TV…….\EVEN CHEAPER THAN ME…
E V E N C H E A P E R/….
AND I HATE THIS
BECAUSE ITS CHEAPER THAN
REALLY INVESTING LOVE
IN ANYONE OR IN ANYTHING……..
……EVEN IN MYSELF/ BECAUSE IT IS ONLY I WHO HAS BEEN TRULY
MOTHERFUCKED
ONLY I .
ONLY I .
AND NOW LIVING ON THE BITTER CRUMBS
OF C H A R I T Y
AND THE SWEETLY VAPID
BUT MOSTLY RAVING MAD KINDNESS
OF STRANGERS
WHO HAVE CALLED ME STRANGE
BECAUSE
I TRAVEL LIGHTLY WITH MY FREEDOM
IN MY LAUGHTER
AND IN MY EYES
AND STRANGE
BECAUSE
I DON’T BELIEVE
A WORD OF H A T R E D
THEY BREATHE
SO SWEETLY
AND SO QUIETLY
BEHIND MY BACK
WHERE THEY CAN CONSISTENTLY PLACE THE DAGGERS
PERFECTLY,
UNTIL I’M SO W O U N D E D
AND T W I S T E D
AND CUT UP TO CRUEL CARNAGE
BY THESE CRITICAL ATTACKS OF ME THAT I JUST DROP RIGHT OUT OF SIGHT, RIGHT?
SO THAT I JUST DROP RIGHT OUT OF REALITY!

YOU CALL ME T W I S T E D?
YOU CALL ME F R E A K?

I DON’T BELIEVE YOU /

I DON’T
BELIEVE/
`CAUSE TO ME
WHAT’S REALLY FREAKY
IS HOW L I A R S
ALWAYS GET AWAY
SQUEAKY CLEAN
OF SHIT
THEY’VE CLEVERLY SMEARED ON SOMEONE ELSE!
OH

I DON’T BELIEVE
I’M ALL THAT
T W I S T E D ,
C R U E L ,
B E N T
AND D E R A N G E D
WITH LIES,
SEETHING AND STEWING BITTERLY
WITH GRIEF AND DENIAL
ABOUT A SELF
I HAD TO MURDER OFF
DECEIVED
MY SURVIVAL RELIED UPON IT……..CAUSE I DIDN’T GET WITH THE PROGRAM OF MINDLESS WHITE-WASHING
MY BLACK ASS WAS MARGINALIZED/ ECONOMICALLY OPPRESSED BY WHITEY,
I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF 20TH CENTURY SLAVERY IN THIN NIGGARDLY DISGUISE
AND I YEARN TO BE FREE OF IT/IMPOSSIBLE TO ESCAPE WHILE I STILL
BELIEVE
THE HYPNOTIC LIES OF AN AMERICAN DREAM
NOT REALLY D E S I G N E D

WITH MY COAL -BLACK ASS
IN MIND/ SO I HAD TO SLAUGHTER OFF MY LAST SANITY, CAUSE THE ONLY N IGGER WHITEY DOESN’T RIP –OFF AND LEAVES IN PEACE
IS A CRAZY ONE/ AND I CAN ASSURE YOU , MY MADNESS GOES MORE THAN SKIN DEEP, WHITEY……..SAME AS YOURS/AND I AINT SORRY ABOUT THAT SELF
I HADS TO SHOOT /HAD TO KILL OFF THAT EVIL BITCH /BUT I HADS TO GET AWAY WITH IT/ SOMEONE ELSE HAD TO TAKE THE BLAME /AND BECAUSE
I’M SO NICE AND SWEET
IT WAS CHOSEN FOR ME BEHIND MY BACK
THAT I WOULD BE THE VICTIM OF SACRIFICE/
AN UNHOLY HUMAN SACRIFICE,
WHICH HIDES
VERY QUIETLY
ITS SECRET REASONS FOR BEING,
SEPARATE
AND APART FROM REALITY
IN A SICK TV FANTASY
TOO SATURATED
WITH SITCOM IDEOLOGY
TO BE
TAKEN SERIOUSLY
AS A LIFE
THOUGH PEOPLE TRY
AND KEEP ON TRYING
TO
STEREOTYPE
SCAPEGOAT
AND INDICT ME
FOR ALL THEIR I D I O T I C
WHITE COLLAR NOTIONS
OF SLAVE CULTURES
HUNDREDS OF YEARS OF HISTORY HASN’T TRULY
ERASED FROM THEIR NARROWLY ARROGANT LITTLE MINDS/SO INSTEAD OF MY HUNDRED ACRES AND A DAMN MULE
ALL THE WHITE MAN
CAN CONCIEVE OF
TO ANSWER THE INJUSTICE DONE MY PEOPLE
WHO’S HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS HAVE OBVIOUSLY BEEN VIOLATED WITH HONESTLY NO REAL CORRECTION SUPPLIED
IS TO BUILD MORE PRISONS, REDUCE PUBLIC ASSISTANCE TO BENEATH MINIMUM WAGE
AND CLAIM ,
[THOUGH THIS EXCUSE IS OLD AND LAME]
THAT THOSE LAZY NIGGERS JUST AINT TRYING HARD ENOUGH……..
AS IF THEY DIDN’T ACTUALLY HAVE IT HARD ENOUGH
AND WERE ALREADY LIVING A LIFE OF EASE IN THE GHETTOS W I C K E D W H I T E Y IS ALSO TRYING TO PUSH THEM OUT OF!

NOW
JUST H O W
DO YOU EXPECT ME
TO GET WITH THIS BULLSHIT? I DON’T WANT YOUR GUILT, WHITEY,
I JUST WANT WHAT’S MINE. YOU LIVE IN A SOCIETY
CATERING SPECIALLY
TO ALL YOUR LITTLE MICRO -WHIMS AND NEEDS………YOU MUST NEED TO FEEL SUPERIOR
BUT YOU SURE DON’T ACT THIS WAY
WHEN YOU SEE ME……IN FACT, I’D GUESS YOU
ARE AFRAID OF ME……THE BIGGEST, STRANGEST IRONY……DON’T YOU HAVE IT ALL, CRACKER?…. / LOOKS? /WEALTH ? / AND POWER?/WHAT YOU SCARED OF
POOR
BLACK
AND UGLY
LITTLE OL’ ME FOR? / MAYBE YOU HATE ME
BECAUSE MY EXISTENCE PHILOSOPHICALLY
INVALIDATES YOUR WHITE WASHED WORLD,
RUTHLESSLY REMINDING YOU
OF HOW SENSELESS AND FULL OF SHIT
YOU TRULY ARE./THAT’S RIGHT, YOUR PERPETUALLY VAIN PROPAGANDA YOU HAVE ONLY DEAFENED ME WITH NEEDLESSLY OUT SHOUTING ME
ONLY MAKES YOU SINGULARLY PATHETIC TO ME/
ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU NEVER STOP IMITATING ME
THOUGH SWEARING
ALL YOUR IDEAS ARE FRESH, BOLD AND
O R I G I N A L
WHEN ACTUALLY
THEY’VE BEEN RIPPED OFF FROM ME!/
YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING? I KNOWS YOU DO!
SO
HERE I BITCH,
FROM PRISON……..THE DELUDED CORRECTIONAL FACILITY
OF YOUR LIMITED WHITE PERCEPTION
OF ME,
WHERE I DAMN SURE AINT GETTING
NO PUSSY
AND NOT GETTING NO PUSSY MAKES
MY ANGRY BLACK ASS MEANER!

BUT I TRY
TO WALK
THE WAY OF THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN…….
THE AFRICAN –AMERICAN?
WHAT’S THAT?
WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?
DAT OL’ BULLSHIT NAME’S
JUST
A
BUZZWORD
FOR
“21ST CENTURY NIGGER”……
….AND NOTHING MORE/…..WHITEY THINKS HE CAN MAKE UP FOR ECONOMICALLY OPPRESSING ME
BY NO LONGER ADDRESSING ME AS “DUMB FILTHY NIGGER.”/ ISN’T THAT SWEET…………….THOUGH VAPID?/SORRY BUT I STILL CAN’T AFFORD JUST TO EAT/AND I’M STILL LIVING HARD ON THE STREETS/…NO ABUNDANCE SHALL FREE FLOW/ WHERE THE WHITE FOLKS SNATCH THE GLOW
FOR THEMSELVES…
ON THE ROAD TO DEFEAT/..THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN, HUH?/WHAT WILL WHITEY THINK OF NEXT?/HOW DID HE COME UP WITH THAT CRAP?/DOES HE THINK THIS IS LIKE TV,
YOU KNOW, LIKE A BRAND NEW SEASON OF “3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN”, “NYPD BLUE”, OR “THE X-FILES”…
…….YOU KNOW, WHERE YOU GET ALL BRAND NEW STORIES
BUT TOLD WITH
THE SAME OLD BULLSHIT
COMMERCIAL EAR ?/YEAH, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT./ I KNOW YOU DO/..THAT OLD TIRED “AFRICAN-AMERICAN” BULLSHIT CAN’T BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY…NO,
NOT BY THE THINKING NEGRO/.. .NOT WHEN WHITEY KEEP CHANGING EVEN THE NAME AS WELL AS THE RULES OF THE SICK 3 CARD MONTY MIND GAME
THEY APPLY CHEAPLY, TO ALL US BLACK FOLK./THEY JUST THOUGHT THAT LAME SHIT UP WHILE HIGH ON ALL THAT 60’S REEFER
AND WATCHING TV BACK IN THE 70’S OR
WHILE HIGH ON ALL THAT 80’S COKE, WHICH THE 90’S SUCKED ROYALLY WITHOUT/……SO DON’T SAY I’M THE ONE
WHO’S FUCKED -UP AND TWISTED/AND DON’T CALL ME
NO UNCLE-TOM-WANNA-BE-WHITEY!/…
CRUEL,
BENT, DERANGED, WARPED
AND SICK WITH RAGE,
DON’T CALL ME
A DISASSOCIATIVE LIAR!/…..
CUZ ‘ I DON’T SEE IT THAT WAY /NO
I SEE IT
DIFFERENT/AND BECAUSE I DO, I CAN CHANGE MY MIND, /AND SUPPORT ANY VERSION OF THE TRUTH I LIKE ….

AND I HAVE SEEN IN SICK CYBERDREAMS THE FACE
OF THE 21ST CENTURY NEGRO SELL-OUT……..HIS NAME IS NOTHING
BECAUSE THAT’S ALL WHITEY LEAVES HIM
AFTER THEY HAVE USED HIM AWHILE TO THEIR NARROW
AND MOCKINGLY BRIEF ENDS
AND LIMITED SATISFACTIONS
THAT PEOPLE WILL LAUGH ABOUT YEARS IN THE FUTURE…
SAYING;
“DUMB –ASS NIGGER……WHERE ARE YOU AT NOW……TODAY? STILL VAINLY
TRYING TO CASH IN ON YESTERDAY’S FAME? TOO BAD YOU ONLY SOLD YOUR SOUL TO
BECOME A PATHETIC HAS-BEEN! HOW AND WHEN
YOU CAN MAKE
A BRILLIANT COMEBACK IN YOUR
TACKY SECOND-RATE CAREER WILL DEPEND CHIEFLY
ON HOW MUCH
ALABASTER-WHITE BOOTY YOU
CAN KISS
NO MATTER HOW STUPID AND DISPOSABLE
WE PORTRAY YOU IN THE PROCESS…………………..THE RAP STAR IMAGE
IS A PERFECT VEHICLE …..WHITE AMERICA CAN USE THIS LAME VENEER TO SEEMINGLY ATONE FOR
ITS RAMPANT AND UNCHECKED OPPRESSION OF BLACKS WITH
BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF EARMARKED WHITE GUILT……….SEEMINGLY,
BUT WHILE SECRETLY
LAUGHING ALL
THE WAY TO THE BANK! SEE?
YOU LAZY NIGGERS ARE GOOD
FOR SOMETHING!” SO CONFORMING, THE BLACK RACE HAS THE DELUDED OPTION OF FIGHTING CAPITALISM AND GREED
WITH CAPITALISM AND GREED, KNOWING
BUT NOT CARING ABOUT LOSING THEIR HEARTS, MINDS AND SOULS
TO THESE FRANTICALLY IMAGINED NEEDS
BELIEVING THESE PRICELESS SPIRITUAL THINGS OF HEART, MIND AND SOUL CAN EASILY BE
EXCHANGED FOR FINANCIAL PEACE OF MIND
IN A HIGHLY COVETED PLACE AMIDST THE EXCLUSIVE , HUGELY OVER-RATED STATUS QUO……..ONLY ABLE TO ENJOY
THE FRUIT OF THEIR WORKING CLASS LABOURS WHEN THEY ARE TOO DRAINED, OLD
AND ELDERLY TO REALLY APPRECIATE IT…/ THIS MOCKERY OF A LIFE BITTERLY SUGGESTS
ONLY THE BUYING POWER TO ENGAGE VAIN ILLUSIONS ON THEIR OWN UNREAL TERMS
THROUGH AN EQUALLY FUTILE SHOW OF STRENGTH/LIES ABOUT PUSSY…../LIES ABOUT DICK……/LIES ABOUT
GETTING PAID/……….ALL BULLSHIT TO ME MUTHAFUCKERS/ AND WITH YO’ LITTLE PINK WIGGLY DICKS ALWAYS TRYING TO SWEAT ME CUZ I’M A BIG BAD BLACK CUM-BLASTING FATHERFUCKER WITH A MIGHTY DICK OF DEATH/
