Revolutionary

He
Upper middle age
Middle class
Black African
Never American Vegan
Black Panther Party Professional
Nation of Islam adherent to the laws of the
Honorable
Elijah Muhammad
Many years in the Struggle
Black fist pumping pride and
Passion

Revolutionary

She
Upper middle age
Middle class
Fish eating vegetarian
Whatever that is
Votes in every election
Also Nation of Islam adherent to the laws of the
Honorable
Elijah Muhammad
Struggled to achieve
Material success defined by the hallucinations of
The Dreamless and the Melanin
Deficient

Encapsulated within the frozen discomfort
Of a prize home with African artifacts and family portraits
Artfully interspersed
Within the picture perfect snapshot of a life
Half-lived
Mortality threatens and the nightmares of the materially-bound
Demand the satisfaction of complacency
The loss of forward movment
The stagnation of
The Struggle

Revolutionary

They
Present a picture of perfection
Of Black Nationalist aspiration and achievement
Relatively affluent and
Proudly paternalistic
Hosting Yoga sessions and meetings of
NCOBRA and the African Holistic Study Organization
At their business addresses
Networking meeting and greeting at the
Black Expo and
For Sisters Only
Selling Kente cloth t-shirts and
Knowledge
In paper-back
Form

Revolutionary

Beneath the veneer of Civilization
Lie material aspirations and dreams of
Accumulation
Reminiscent of the
Open Enemy
Misplaced within the context of the American Dream
Denied
A Disutopian conception of a
Nihilist future
Where each moment is all that
There is
Destiny the imaginings of a febrile mind
Status symbols of accomplishment and dedication to
The cause of self-serving aggrandizement that becomes the modus
Of a colonized operandi
Demogogues of a failed and flawed political agenda
Co-opted to fatten the bellies of a gluttonous cadre
Of stifled thought gloating and consolidating the
Repression of the Youth for yet
Another day

Ages old in conception
The War of Generations remains
Kill the Future
Destroy the Past
Adapted unconsciously by the children of slaves
Frrom their Masters
To a Willie Lynch reality
Perverted past all recognition of
Truth Justice and Freedom the Birthright of Saints and
Souls of Light
Caught up in the delusion of complacency
The illusion of material wealth that is truly as
Transitory as life's perfect
Moments
Interaction creates friction necessary for
Change seemingly somnolent waiting for the correct
Alignment of Planets and possibilities in the grand scheme of a
Galactic dream
Despite the perception of imperfection and
The deception of a dream deferred by the End of an Age
All is as it should be and is
Really and truly

Revolutionary
