Too many of them to speak their names
Too many crimes that bear their shames
In time they had a mental revolution
In time they want freedom as conclusion
They are a gathering of Kings
Some too young and some too old to mention
Some who never thought to be in detention
Of a prison where they would be
In modern day slavery
They are a gathering of Kings
Some too intelligent and far too smart
Their brain waves flying off the charts
Some so artistic with rap or rhyme
You wonder how long they gonna do time
They are a gathering of Kings
Christian Moslem, Five % and Nation
Moors and Asiatics, all are conscious raising
Pan African medallions in their hearts
They are a Gathering of Kings

ROXANNE. THOUGHT THE GATHERING OF KINGS ? YOU WANT KINGS GO TO IRISH CULTURE. LINES OF KINGS THAT RAN 6000 YEARS, MOSTLY EXTERMINATED BY NORMANS, BRITS AND HESSIANS AN OTHER PAID GALLO GLASSES. A 1000 YEAR WAR FOR FREEDOM , STILL NOT WON. BUT THEIR DESCENDANTS STILL FIGHT ON, A 1000 BROKEN TREATIES AN PROMISES NEVER KEPT. FREEDOM SEEMS AN ILLUSION, FOR THE CELTS. THE FIRST MASTERS OF EUROPE. KEEP WRITING. I BE READING. TRUTH TELLS A FAR BETTER STORY.
AN CHARAS.

CENDANTS STILL FIGHT ON. FREEDOM IS A WORD THAT VERY FEW UNDERSTAND

I dig this piece, seemed so sincerely written. Liberation from modern day slavery is something desperately needed, but how many people even know that are enslaved? I mean, with people walking around blinded by society, ignorant to thier real condition.
