DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE

 

"Greater Memphis" Grizz. Poetry Slam 2013

Beauty has came and gone,

but the river of life continues to flow on.

Wars that use to be won,

are now battles of destruction which began due to the

corruption of those who promised even greater perfection

of that strong land of the patron. Power and strength from the most highest,

knowledge drenched from I, for their hearts and minds were driven by Ptah,

they built the empire upon the risk of being too close to the sun.

But that didn't phase them, for they served their fateful gift

which was the skillful craftsmenship of percision.

It was practically impossible for one not to be talented, because prosperity was the key.

But when prosperity attracted jealousy,

the empire fell to the feet of absenty. And as the infinite sands crossed many seas,

upon the bluff it finally laid as the new Memphians slaved to replicate the grand antiquity of those days.

Memphection, outsiders called it.

Memphonics they heard in the winds.

Memphitics they heard them speak,

and Memphity they saw them scribe.

But today as we wonder through Memphis, look at what all has died.

So you tell me, do you not hear and see the cry of how and why this land should become greater, Memphis?

For when it does it shall thrive, for all we have to do is try.
