so called leaders with no followers

Verguenza Sin Baba

Conference full of clowns
Experts elected to maintain status quo

Shucking jiving to squeeze inside
Ivory tower illusions of power

Mingling minions
Hungry for idol worship

Suck up with selfie to prove
You rub elbows with celebrity academics

King’s crown lack sincere shine
Dangle you dream with torn laundry line

Dirty drawers thrown away
Forgotten funk realer than elevator jingle

Crazy how far block fame
Can bring you back to foundation

Genesis of critical consciousness
Essential why

Pen to paper sacred word cry
Heavenly muse decided to pay visit

Divine reception inspiration
Soothes spirit so much static in city
Can barely hear your own voice

Many choices few options
No selection stuck on bobito

You are writing to heal soul
Not become spokesman of your people

So much evil
Lurking tempting you to join
Spaced out zombies

Brain meat chunks
Deep dive in dark lagoons
Curse thought clouds
For lack of levitation

Analyze situation
Stuckazoid in middle of Smacked City

Poor barely get pity
Rich are rotten ripe

Picking apart bones from flesh
Hollow skull brittle skeleton

Miscreant meddlin
Right where devil’s been

Prepare receive blessings
Daily work is your evidence

Peace VONA, still recovering hoping for the bright future

“….our fate cannot be taken from us/it is a gift “– Dante

Fear is a fallacy
Inherit your blessed bestowed gifts

Embrace unusual

Walk around focused
Be wise in your wandering
Wish for what you want

Wait for it
Squeak one out

What shall be wonderful

No more fuck shit
How about some love shit

Don’t be done with future
Future is not done with you

Tomorrow may be uncomfortable
Uncertainty is very necessary for elevation

Clock pushes you towards triumph
Grab a handful of hope and hold on

Send out a smoke signal
Communicate to the clouds

Consider contribution to canon
Cultivate courage out the chaos
Like conviction to admit your flaws

Accept mistakes as mark of growth
Icy slope when you can barely walk straight

Prevent demise of ideals
Invested instincts influenced by elders’ errors

Look to the mirror forgive us
Recall you forgot agony to sit still
Capture your pretending

Gather what you left behind
Bid them peace salutations blessings

Presence es un placer
De conocer cara de nino
Pero alma de hombre

Fried anger will mata hambre
Pero perezoso will engorda

Chubby chicho spare tire will be cute

One day more of you from dubs
Potency of pa’lante better not be paltry

Skimpy bolsas de poder
Temporary fix for long term monkeys

Fed salty peanuts to put on sideshow
Let the extraganza sabado gigante celebration
Set off with a cipher to get the MCs loose
Enough to see prophecy within their search

Decipher conspiracy
Divine lives outside church
Wherever you choose to worship
Will provide heavenly temple

Gospel grounded in gutter
Go on get the gold at end of pothole road

Your truest smile lies at faded yesterdays
Past is no longer your cage

peace beloved

Gutter Star Haikus
            For Sir Pop a Lot

Color schemes program
Brown shorties to become hood
Subliminal traps

By design you can’t
See sky over projects’ height
Won’t go where don’t see

hood flick

Glory Portrait

Dropouts about to get back in the game
Pop 40 highlights outta town escapades

Been afraid
Tomorrow might transition
Too comfortable to bounce so hastily

Lately becomes yesterday
Half a man cell decay evaporates with each pull
Lil higher stale lavender flowerpot
Opposite of true intelligence

Can’t get an overtime replay
Blown call at hood tournament
Do over suspect Watson flooded
Camouflaged hot boys ready to ignite fuse

Challenge your promotional single will ever
Reunite familia haven’t seen
Since shat for amusing embarrassment

Ayer chopped down faster than
Ancient swamp trees
Woodchip legacy

Projector on side of brick fades with sun
Rises over brighter mistakes
You can’t take back when your ball caught limbs
Bird shit dropped on brim

Chances are slim screams battle
Just to hear loud whispers

What we supposed to do with all this knowledge
Brag about ignorance
Or freely distribute jewels to beloved
Float gravity deadly possibility

Pluck grey hair
Wisdom be Achilles
No time for shook sons
Don’t question power
Voice is necessary

When old wounds get fresh scabs
Grab mother’s hand
Stop dumb weight crashing father’s dome

Should know lane by now
More confused how life will turn out

Stay rooted in faith
Happiness is not for sale

Point is to do it
Fuck depression if you fail

You succeed from your effort
This is not your fault

You don’t deserve doubt
Hang on to hope

Don’t dead your dreams
Impossible seems likely

Fighting air letting you breathe
Accept anger

Endless bliss crying hurts
Perhaps manana won’t end like this

Give thanks for your ground
Floor slanted to make you slouch
The real has just stepped into the house

fucked up angel

Nuyorican Angel of Desperation

Go get it
Got that fever itching

Cojelo con take it easy
Suave pai
No need for bug out be chillz

Relax these are facts
Relapse more probable than elevation
Resuscitation of reputation unlikely

Why try fighting your oppression
You have that tranquil passive lean

Fux your American dream
CREAM ain’t just a ring tone

Bunch of shallow company
Shut up and smoke dope

Shells never dummy
How hungry are you

Enough to sacrifice
Can you go with out

No matter how loud you shout
No one listening

Hands clammy puddles
Plan one day to bubble

For now real struggle
Cotton mouth stinky paranoia

Legal aid inconvenient lawyer
Lack of ours waste hours

Watching brown skin wrinkle
Dried fruit bruised and beautiful

Shit shave shower
Might feel better about regular routine

Pana this ain’t a dream
Attempting fantasia out every day

Which way
Can’t fix a crooked game

Exclusive proof you lame
Copycat kitty until you bitten
Hand that breeds you
Who believes you

People in lurk of some strife
Gripping bubble guts

So hangry could belch
For fine first impression

Eye contact without daps
Thirsty coqui peleando
For last sips of dusty botella of regret
