Dark Explode the Blues (from Horns: Rap 9)

the moon is on the wane in the hour of man’s pain as man cuts sugar cane bile flows In his vein axes & heads knives & hearts flashes of the night’s steel as satan rings his till dark explode the blues god blows his fuse no longer is he a mystery hiding in his laboratory unseen even by microscope or seen only at the bioscope he now walks the earth baptising It in a bloodbath planting seeds of babylon humanity razes them with the fire of frantz fanon the god of death has chosen this nation guns sing lullabies to children war is god to prophets of homicide but a tool in my hands i wield with pride the anger I unleash profiteers won’t publish my struggle is not for sale soul-selling can only derail the train of truth from the path of faith this land is frigid with a wombful of acid thus some born burnt black & the population’s crack was ordained an oracle
to prophesy a miracle though objection over-ruled rolls from injustice’s bench to douse my protestations of fire in a drench i move in the spirit of mystics defying the laws of physics flying above the bullet rain lifting my people above the pain above man on man tyranny & its prejudice bad seed progeny in this revolutionary motion grenades explode the skull of Isaac newton
