A FEW GOOD MEN
There’s a few good men who roar through the
unholy downpours that slap across our people
dumping rotten expulsions from another mind
another heart into our precious psyche
dropping atomic explosions in the consciousness of man
There’s a few good men that dont take agression for power and dont mistake power for love but extract
the only value left and
stretch thier arms to the sky
“This is all I have, I’ll be my people’s friend”
Where o where have the righteous gone?
Ahh…..there they are
Born with every apparent death…
closer then…..closer then…..closer
