I'm SICK Now of Hearing ...
This Word ... " Compromise " ... !!!!!

While THEY Tell Us Lies ... !!!
Why Should I ... " dIsGuise " ... ?
The Truth From ............................................................... "Their Eyes" ... ?!?

THEY As In ...... " THEM " ......

Who Give Us PROBLEMS ... !!!!!
While THEY Sit And Spend ...
Cash THEY Have STOLEN ... !!!!!

This Thing Compromise Is How They've ... Devised ...
To Keep Us From Seeing THE TRUTH From THE LIES ... !!!

So Can It Be WISE To Just Compromise ... ?
Opinions In YOU You KNOW To Be TRUE ... ?!?

Just To Make CASH So You Can Live FLASH ... !?!

THAT Just ISN'T ... REAL ... !!!

You Might As Well Steal ...
Cos' Living Like THAT UNevEns .... " The Keel " .... !!!

Do YOU Compromise ... ???

Well Maybe You Do ... ?
But When You Reflect ...................................
Can You Say It Was ... Wise ... ?!?

I CANNOT Deny I Have Compromised ... !!!
But Now I Believe I'd Rather DEFY ... !!!
Than Sit And Comply With Those Who Would Try ...
To Make Me The ... " Fall Guy " ... !!!!!

They ALWAYS Imply That Brothers Like I ...
Should Simply BEND OVER ... ROLLOVER And Die ... !?!?!

Well If I Must Die I Firstly MUST TRY ...
To RISE ABOVE Those Who Just ... " Compromise " ...

And Sell Themselves ... " short " ...
Cos' Their Souls Have Been Bought ... !!!
By Those Who ... "Constrict" ...
Their FREEDOM OF THOUGHT ... !!!

These Days I'm Now STRESSING POETIC Expression ... !!!!!
To FLY With God's Blessing Straight Into ... " His Heaven " ...

In Life Can't We Be Mentally FREE ... ?
To EXPRESS Our View On Things That We SEE ... ???

WITHOUT ........................................... Compromise ....... !!!

For Guys Who Wear Ties Who Seem SO SURPRISED ... !?!?!
When Black Men Like Me Are WISE TO Their LIES ... !!!

And Use THEIR OWN WORDS To Devise Their Demise ...
Compromise HERE or Compromise THERE ... ?

We NEED TO Start Issuing WARNINGS ... BEWARE ... !!!!!!

With Poetry CLAIMING The Media GLARE ... !!!!!!!!!
So Maybe One Day I'll Be Your ... " Compere " ... ?

WITHOUT Song and Dance I'm NOT .... Fred Astaire .... !!!!!!!
But Running AMOK YES ... Just Like MY HAIR ... !!!!!!!!!

So Who'll Pave The Way For Poets To Say ...
The Things On Their Mind That HURT EVERYDAY .... !!!!!

Could It Be ... " Me " ... ?
Or Could It Be ... " You " ... ?

Who REALLY Can Handle Reciting THE TRUTH ...
WITHOUT SELLING OUT Just To Look ... " COOL " ...
Well I AIN'T That Fool My Brain Is A TOOL To Skywalk' Like LUKE ... !!!!!

But Forces Are DARK Surrounding Like ... SHARKS ... !!!
PROTECTING The Few Who ... "Hide What They Do" ... !!!

So Tell Me This People Is What I Say TRUE ... ???

Well That's Up To YOU ...

UNLEARN What You've Learned ... !!!
Before You Get BURNED ... !!!

LUST For A Prize Could Leave You ... "downsized" ... ?!?

And This Might Just Happen ... ???

If You ............

.... " Compromise " ....
