It's HARD These Days To Fight ... " The Good fight " ... !!!
When So MANY Things Are Kept From ... "Sight" ... !!!!!

Laws Now Applied Are Well Defined ... !!!
If You're Not of A CERTAIN Type You're Deemed To .... " INCITE " .... !!!
If You Speak Your Mind About Social Crimes UNLESS You're of The ... Government Type ...

The Spread of Lies Is Now Disguised Behind People Just Like ... " Condoleeza Rice " ...
It's No Surprise She's Got Her Slice of Uncle George's... " Apple Pie " ... !!!

Many Have Died Both Black and White And Asians Alike In New Orleans And ... Overseas ... Where They Claim EVERY Night To FIGHT ... " The Good Fight " ... !!!!!!

This REALLY DOESN'T Seem SO GOOD To Me ... !!!!!?!!!!!!

But As I'm Black Who Cares About That ... !?!?!?!
Double Standards Now Are OH SO Foul ...
Like Fighting Wars In FOREIGN Towns ...
While People AT HOME Are Left To Drown ... !!?!!

New Orleans Will Wear THAT CROWN ...
For Many Years While The Homeless FROWN ...

Now Films Are Making ... " Political Sounds " ...

Just Like ... "The Road To Guantanomo" ... !!!!!!!!!!

Now That's NO JOKE But What Do You Know ... ?
The Actors From The Film Had Just Flown Home ...
From A German Awards Show And Were Greeted By POLICE ... !?!
At Luton Airport And QUICKLY Placed In CUSTODY ... !!!

They Were Then Held For TWO HOURS .... !!!?!!!
Their Collars' Felt And Return ... SOURED ... !!!

So Listen Up Folks Here Comes The Quote ... !!!

"Are you going to make more Political Films ?" ...

Was A Question Asked By One Whose Task ...
Is To Stop Terrorists Who Are Muslims ... !!!

A Representative of The Group ... " REPRIEVE " ...
Whose Work Includes .... " Civil Liberties " ...
Expressed OUTRAGE And DISBELIEF ... !!!
She CLEARLY HASN'T Dealt With Many Police ... !!!!!

They Fight ... " The Good Fight " ...
Pretty Much How THEY LIKE ... !!!?!!!

And May Well Try To Say My Rhymes ...
Are DANGEROUS And Could INCITE ... ?!?

Well Here's The Key It's POETRY ... !!!!!
About The Ways They LIE And CHEAT ... !!!

It's Funny To Me But Now CLEARLY ...
Whether Film or Play You've Got To Watch The Things You Say ... !!!

But It's Now Okay To Make Films About ... " Gays " ...
COWBOY Gays ... " I say I say what like John Wayne ... !!! "

FUNNY That ... Wasn't Always That Way ... !?!

Now They Fight ... " The Good Fight " ... !!!
Will Police Frisk THEM And Ask Questions ... ?!?!?

"Sir, I think not !"

"No, what's the problem ?
I'm sure they'd find a use for those BIG TRUNCHEONS !
Males who are gay, could be terrorist men ?"

It's Now CLEAR To Me We've NEVER BEEN FREE ... !!!
But Come Now PLEASE NO Freedom To Speak Or Talk About The Things We See ... !?!

NOT Free To Protest Whatever Next ... !?!
Now They Want To Give Pills That May Just KILL ... !?!

APPARENTLY ... Pills Such As These ...
Will Help Us Live On TWO Hours Sleep ... !!!

Now That's CRAZY ... !!!
There's Said To Be A NEED In Todays' Society ... ?!?

Are They NOT Happy With Cocaine Speed And Ecstasy ... ??!??

NO Freedom To Sleep They Want Walking ZOMBIES ... !!!

Work Til' You DROP What's Going On ... !!! ? !!!

NO Time For Your Kids NO Time To Conceive ...
Conception May Become An ... " E Bay Bid " ... !!!!!

"Internet Sperm !!!
Next Day Delivery !!!
Spunk from a Hunk !!!
Pregnancy Guaranteed !!!"

Don't Know About You But That's NOT FOR ME ... !!!
Can This Possibly Be Our DESTINY ... !?!

My Light Sabre Technique NEEDS A New Regime ... !!!!!
Where's OB1 Kenobi ... " Beam Me Up Scotty ! " ...

That's ALL A Pipe Dream But REALITY BITES ... !!!!!!
And It's HARD Nowadays To FIGHT ...

........ " The Good Fight " .......
