A little rat-a-tat-tap

Group-think tanks
splashing ink like
ASCII with hyperlinks
I’m done with identity
Political expediency
Eugenic entitlement to
Hegemonic enlightenment
I’m losing the need
To plead my reality
Or what I might need
What I will or won’t be
In the service of greed
I leave it all to you
Sisters and brothers
From a billion other mothers
Cos I’m hopeful and hopeless
And no part of me believes
We can group-think our dreams…

    As am I, and my empire is behind all of this hell.

    Spot on correct, Robyn! The herd mentality has paved the path to hell!

  4. Oh god, you have absolutely GOT to send this to hip-hop artists! I mean the kind who do melodic stuff. There are a bunch here in Atlanta, Georgia.
    So great, Robyn!!!

    You know – that’s pretty good! πŸ™‚
    I like the way the words sound like the rapping of a keyboard, the rapping on a door and the rapping of a brother who knows where he needs to be.
    Well done.
    Kindness – Robert.
