WHAT DOES THE AWAKENED PERSON DO?

Listening to the voices that are vilified.

             
Savior’s Day, 2012

Obama, Global Depopulation, & America’s

Shadow Gov’t

I admire Farrakhan because he loves black people as I do.  Loving us he feels it his duty to share the most bitter of truths.  It is inevitable perhaps that we disagree on a number of issues, including some of my work, which he has criticized, but on this love for our people we are united.  I take comfort  in  his courage, his intelligence and his wit.  It is easy to see why, when he was a calypso singer, he was called “the charmer.”  He also plays classical violin, as I learned from an interview on Sway in the Morning during a discussion of hip-hop culture and the lethal control of black music by the recording industry.

Some of the information in this talk will be as surprising to the 99% as to the 1%.  Stick with it through the parts that feel challenging to you. Learning from people we don’t understand is crucial to our survival.

Depopulation Blues #2

They want to kill
All the world’s people
Simply to take what they have.
It is no longer mysterious.
We know the murders are not done
Because someone is wearing
A towel.
They are not done because
There is a threat
To our sad, empty, treacherous
Way of life.
Even shopping fails
To soothe us
Anymore.
It is a hunger
To own that which might fill
The inside void.
But nothing can or will.

Life is being raped to death
By those who cannot
Bear their inner loneliness
Who cannot stop
What they cannot feel.

OYENDO LAS VOCES VILIPENDIADAS

Obama, el despoblamiento global y el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos en la sombra.Admiro a Farrakhan porque ama a los negros al igual que yo. Al amarlos, él cree su deber compartir la más amarga de las verdades. Es inevitable tal vez que no estemos de acuerdo en ciertos aspectos, incluyendo algunos de mis trabajos, los que ha criticado, pero en su amor por nuestra gente estamos unidos. Me consuelo en su valentía, su inteligencia y su agudeza. Es fácil ver por qué, cuando era un cantante de calipsos, le llamaban “el encantador”. También interpreta el violín clásico, como supe por una entrevista en “Sway in the Morning” (Influjo en la mañana) durante un debate acerca de la cultura hip-hop y el control letal de la música negra por la industria disquera.

 

Blues del despoblamiento #2

Ellos quieren matar
a toda la gente del mundo
solo para quitarles lo que tienen.
Ya no es un misterio.
Sabemos que los asesinos no han acabado
porque alguien lleva puesta
una toalla.
No han acabado porque
hay un desafío
a nuestra triste, vacía, engañosa
forma de vida.
Inclusive comprar falla
en aliviarnos
por más tiempo.
Es un hambre
de poseer aquello que pueda llenar
el vacío interior.
Mas nada puede ni lo hará.

La vida muere violada
por aquellos que no pueden
soportar su soledad interior
que no pueden detener
lo que no pueden sentir.
