Dear Readers,

Another deep and yet not deep enough day in the news. Keep reading for today’s Hip Hop based commentary on the New York Times headlines by Political Poet Naxal. That’s me. I flips the news like you never seen. Almost on the Daily. Enjoy.

July 4, 2007

the fourth of july is a lie/

still the sky/

delights/

angels gum popping/

in the clouds proud/

colors bright/

tonight.

*

the fourth of july is a lie/

blood brothers never die/

u.k., u.s./

shank under/

my dress/

united states social forum/

no less/

than the potential for a new constitutional body/

founding fathers now founding mothers/

sisters and brothers/

the kind of inter-continental meeting to make your dance cry/

independence is it freedom/

and freedom is it questions/

like if we are a movement or a new culture/

what is our creation story/

how do we greet each other with glory/

when we eat whats the best way to share/

who tells our stories and who documents them where/

our hearts are broken what’s the healthy way to care/

for ourselves and our enemies with them ready soft throats/

knife in hand if its education don’t gloat/

control your fear and smile as you slit it/

for a camera eye stands ready/

on our new movement culture fit/its/

real, its true, durga matha, pitha, you.

the fourth of july is a lie/

fuck scooter libby/

he was never going to fry/

sure it makes a difference/

a documented public outcry/

let all prisoners go home/i/

don’t have the answers/

but to me another unreported real story is/

why does the movement side step art/

like at the forum where it was held in other tents and other parts/

is it more a turtle’s slow pace back to the place where feelings start/

or are we all civilized, buying tickets, sitting down for a show/

even though each a starlit artist with room for cream to grow/

sweeter and thicker on each page, on each stage, scarecrow/

in the wiz told those nasty birds just where to go/

and that’s what’s news to me/

that we each a new role model for what free means/

good night readers/

don’t you know/

i’ma always be back 4 mo

*

the fourth of july is a lie/

still the sky/

delights/

angels gum popping/

in the clouds proud/

colors bright/

tonight.
