(Humanity Poem) The Phoenix Of Baltimore

THE PHOENIX OF BALTIMORE

 

Tears, felt from the depths of the well of the Soul

So sad to lose the young, through such callous hearts die

Some yell race, it’s not as much that as it is immaturity and ego

The Blue needs to pray about the Heart and Soul of the Blue

Cold blooded murder is not okay for me, nor is it for you

Do not blame those who did not defecate upon their profession

For the sins of six lose not faith in those who protect us with their blood

 

Most chose peaceful demonstrations for the innocent shedding of blood

Some among us choose to act out the part of liquored up violent thugs

Many chose to hide their Asses behind masks like cowards so often do

Burn a few cars, loot a few stores, show the world how sincere you are

Doesn’t the Community of Earth deserve accountability from us all

Tears for the fallen, no reason to burn anyone’s neighborhood, even yours

Justice must roll from the bottom to the top or whole generations die by the gun

 

 

 

(Poem) My Old Kentucky Run

 

 

Early this morning in these old Kentucky hills

I did leave my cabin in search of a meal

Looking for a squirrel, rabbit, or pheasant my belly to fill

Three extra shells for my 20 gauge strapped to my side

I popped up over a hill and to my surprise

Eye ball to belly with a bear twice my size

 

 

Off and a running with nowhere to hide

Tooth pick legs a pumping, corn liquor belly swaying side to side

Huffing and puffing, I just can’t out run this four-legged fiend

Lord I know this prayer is quite a bit to late

But Lord please give me faster feet or a much bigger gun

With fangs in my backside, and no shine to kill the pain

Now sauteed and seasoned on this bad boys plate

Only hope now is that Heaven is the place I awake

 

 

 

Do Black Lives Or Any Lives Really Matter In The Society’s Of Today?

 

Here in the States we see and hear of evil everyday on the different news feeds we have at our fingertips. Just this morning I heard of an active shooter in SW Houston Texas where a disgruntled lawyer went on a shooting spree wounding 9 people before the Police shot and killed him. As of the time of this report I do not know if the color of ones skin had anything to do with who was shot this morning or not. Just a couple of days ago an idiot shot and killed 5 people at a mall in Washington State. In that instance it appears to me that gender and the religious beliefs of the shooter had a huge role in those murders. Yet even when there are mass shootings here in the U.S. the mass media focuses most of its airtime whenever a Black person is killed by a Police Officer than on any other of these events. It seems that in our American Media there is always the effort to divide and take sides when this happens. I guess because hatred, racism, ignorance and criminal activities sell more papers and airtime.

 

Do I think that some Police Officers are racist and or just plain punks? Yes of course I do, I have lived 60 years here in the States and I am an eye-witness to such events several times. Do I believe that all Police Officers are racist or punks, no, not at all, that would be bias and quite stupid of me to think that. Yet it is my belief that some people do believe that about all Police Officers and if they do then I believe that they have become exactly what they hate, racist, hate filled punks themselves. Do I believe that the young Black man who was shot and killed by a Black plain clothed Police Officer in Charlotte North Carolina this past week was a racist act? No I don’t unless the Black Officer was a person who is bias against his own race. Also earlier this week there was another case of a young Black man being shot and killed by a White lady Police Officer in Tulsa Oklahoma. Do I believe that race had anything to do with this shooting? Yes I do. Each case of a Police shooting has to be analyzed separately. Every human case is different because the humans involved are different. The lady Officer in Tulsa has been charged with first degree manslaughter but the Officer in Charlotte has not been charged with anything, at least not yet. Personally I believed and still believe that the Officer in Tulsa should have been charged with second degree murder. I have known a lot of Officers in my life and I know that some do always carry a ‘throw down’ gun or a knife just in case they mess up and shoot an unarmed person they can throw down that weapon so that they don’t get charged with shooting an unarmed person. Is this what happened in Charlotte? By what I have

seen on tapes and pictures, it looks to me like this might well be one of those throw down situations.

 

The big issue on these shootings because of the media trying to sell airtime and news papers is when they can bring race into the forefront. There are far more people in this Country that are shot by Police Officers that are not black folks than the cases where they are Black folks. Yet we hear very little in the Nations media unless it is a Black person who got shot. The media and those ignorant enough to believe their bias hype could believe that Police Officers only shot black people. There are plenty of cases though where I do believe the person’s skin color got them executed by a Police Officer like where that young Black kid was shot 16 or 17 times as he lay on the street in Chicago. In my opinion this is a case of first degree murder and the Cop should be charged with first degree murder and nothing less.

 

How much ruckus do you hear in the media when any other race of person is shot by an Officer when the one shot wasn’t Black? How about when a White person is shot by an Officer? Now, when was the last time there were any riots when a Hispanic, Indian or Asian person was shot by an Officer? America’s media play the race card mostly/only when it is a Black person who has been shot. Our society has been groomed to treat Black folks different in almost all issues. Some of these issues are good but many are toward the negative. Before the 1960’s all non White people were treated horribly not just the Black folks. It is true that the only ‘legal’ slaves in this Country were Black people but slavery ended more than  150 years ago. No one in our Country today has ever even known someone who was a ‘legal’ slave nor has anyone ever been one. Slavery of any kind is a sickening thing to even think about and it is nothing to ever joke about. Have you ever watched the movies Roots or Django? How about the TV program on WGN out of Chicago called Underground? If these situations don’t make you sick at your stomach, have you no morality?

 

This ‘movement’ here in America called ‘Black Lives Matter’ in my opinion is nothing not much more than a racist movement of hate. Do Black lives matter? Absolutely they do, but so does every life, equally. Should it be okay for people in this Country to protest peacefully against the Government or against a Police Department’s? Yes, of course it should be okay for everyone in this Country to peacefully protest yet the word Peacefully is the key word. In Charlotte we have seen once again where folks, mostly Black folks have protested with violence and the Nations media has remained very quiet about it because if they spoke the truth they would be accused of being racist towards Black people. Think about it, people riot, burning vehicles, breaking into store and tractor trailers on the interstate and blocking off a major interstate and it is said by some that these rioters were simply ‘street cleaners’, how sickening! The media have created their own monster. The Black Race in this Country has been allowed to be racist in almost all venues. Think about these issues for a moment please. Here in this Country there are such things as the NAACP, the Black Miss America Pageant, the Negro College Fund, Black Colleges, Black Churches, Black Congressional Caucuses, Black Businessmen Associations, Black Lives Matter Movement and the list goes on and on. Now think about it, if there were such things as the National Association of White People, the White Miss America Pageant, the White Peoples College Fund, White Colleges and White Churches, White Congressional Caucuses, White Businessmen Associations, or the White Lives Matter Movements a huge amount of America’s Black folks would be livid, ranting and raving about how racist these groups are and how they had to be stopped from existing? The same thing would happen if there were Associations like this for Asian, Hispanic or Indian folks. There is a group of white folks that most everyone knows of called the KKK and rightfully so, most Americans have no use for their hatred. My question to everyone is, shouldn’t every single thing is this Country that is in any way race based be made illegal? Are they not all hate groups? Are they not all bias?

 

Racism is a huge problem in this country and racism does exist in some people in every race on the planet. Racism is simply another term for hatred of those who aren’t like we, that person is. I am a white guy by birth, I like everyone else ever born had no say so concerning my skin color when I came out of the womb. Skin color does not make me a good person or a bad person. My skin color had nothing to do with me being or not being a racist hate filled person, nor did it you. I have first hand experienced hate because of my white skin. This has happened many times from Black folks, Hispanic folks and from Indian folks. I have also experienced hatred from White people who were mad at me because I was daring to speak with a non-White. Now the question is, do Black Lives Matter? I think you know my answer by now so the question is to you, do Black Lives Matter? The question is also to all of the Black folks reading this article today, are you a racist, do you hate any other race of people, or all the other people who are not Black? Hatred like racism is a disease of the mind and of the Soul. Everyone on this planet are brothers and Jesus made it plain that if we hate our brother without a cause (something they can’t help or do anything about, like skin color) then we are condemning our own selves to Hell. I’m just saying, racism is an individual personal thing, we choose to be or not to be. So now my last question to you is, what have you chosen to be?

Milwaukee: The Ignorance, Stupidity, Hyprocery And The Shame Of The Black Community

 

So, there has been another police shooting, this time in the city of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Some folks, especially black folks may be mad at me for this title I used today, so be it. I have not read or heard of which skin color the Police Officer has but we do hear that the man shot was a young black man. So, what happens as soon as the word gets out? Black folks go to the streets and start a riot, burning several businesses to the ground along with several vehicles, brilliant isn’t it? There is an old saying don’t sh– where you live yet this ignorance continues. Now the people who live there have got to go to other stores to do their shopping and not all people have transportation so this ignorance has only hurt the local population.

 

For now, I am backing the police on this shooting, do you remember the slogan, innocent until proven guilty? The criminals who participated in this riot last night and this morning prove by their actions that they themselves are exactly that, criminals that should be arrested and thrown into prison. They prove by their own actions that they have no interest in the truth of the matter! The Milwaukee County Sheriff Mr. Clarke who happens to be a black person also, has requested from the Governor Mr. Walker and from the Major General who is in charge of the Wisconsin National Guard for help in stopping this stupidity. It is my personal belief that the National Guard if they are deployed should have the right, and be given the order, to shoot on site any violent protesters. This is for the safety of the rest of the population as there is no excuse for the violence.

 

The Sheriff has publicly stated that the Officer is a three-year veteran of the police force and that he did have a body camera on him. Why is it that these local folks who participated in the riot would not wait to see if what the Officer said happened is the actual truth? Do the black communities in America really want there to be no Police within their communities? Folks, it is the community leaders in most cases who plead with the Mayors for there to be a bigger Police presence within their communities because of there being so much crime where they live and work. If the video shows that the Officer was lying he should be fired and prosecuted to the fullest extent that the law allows. I to have come across many very crooked Police Officers in my life, I know that they are just like all other humans, there are good ones and bad ones. But the people who chose to riot last night are showing that they are the problem within their own communities by not waiting to see what that body camera shows the truth to be!

 

Here are a few facts about what happened last evening for you to consider. If what the Officer said is the truth, that he was chasing the suspect because he took off and ran once the Officer’s stopped the car, then the Officer was simply doing what he is supposed to do. If it is the truth that the Officer ordered the man to stop, and that the man had a pistol in his hand and he was ordered to drop it, and he did not, the Officer did what he had to do. Sense the man was shot in the chest and not the back it appears that the Officer was telling the truth. The Sheriff says that the gun the man had been one that was stolen in a robbery about three months ago, along with 500 rounds of ammo. Also consider the fact that there was a double murder just four nights before in that exact location, one by bullets and the other via a knife. The people of the community wants there to be less crime yet it is the community that is doing the crime. This is an issue that people in the black communities struggle with all over the country, no one wants Police violence but their presence is a necessary evil especially in areas that have high crime rates. All people have the right to be and to fill safe in their daily lives and the best way to ever accomplish this is if we raise our children to be kind and loving people. If we don’t care for and raise our children and we leave the streets and the gangs to raise them then the local communities will never be a safe place for anyone. We as a society can not blame the Police Officers for them doing their jobs and trying to stay alive till the end of their shifts. Either that or we should dismiss all the Police Agencies and let the gangs be the law of all our neighborhoods.

My Sins

 

I am so thankful, my sins washed from my back

The burden though forgiven my mind won’t let me forget

Without the Lord’s blood, grace and protection, dead long ago I would be

Can a person really count each day the amount of sins we commit

Maybe if someone is righteous enough, maybe they can

I have done so much wrong in this life I have been given

I have learned that only the Blood of Jesus can save you and I

What I deserve, without Jesus, no doubt I would fry

From birth it seems I have been good with the numbers

Even with this advantage, could I count all the lies in my life

Lord, this sin like many others, is a million ahead or behind

For long ago thefts now my hands would probably be missing

Many Ladies Lord in my life have given to me of their pleasures

Two failed marriages with deception and hate for brides

How many things in my life have I killed

Hardly ever caring as their breaths disappear

Saying no more than darn it when the innocent by accident I killed

Do we ever take solace in the peace the Lords Blood has given

For the guilt of these sins Lord, you have taken the gun from my ear

(Poem) My Old Kentucky Run

 

 

Early this morning in these old Kentucky hills

I did leave my cabin in search of a meal

Looking for a squirrel, rabbit, or pheasant my belly to fill

Three extra shells for my 20 gauge strapped to my side

I popped up over a hill and to my surprise

Eye ball to belly with a bear twice my size

 

 

Off and a running with nowhere to hide

Tooth pick legs a pumping, corn liquor belly swaying side to side

Huffing and puffing, I just can’t out run this four-legged fiend

Lord I know this prayer is quite a bit to late

But Lord please give me faster feet or a much bigger gun

With fangs in my backside, and no shine to kill the pain

Now sauteed and seasoned on this bad boys plate

Only hope now is that Heaven is the place I awake
