GIVE IT UP WHITE BOY:


Give it up white boy -mask of a white washed
Monument full of ethic - white woman titivated
On the surface but filled with death and decay
'You erect monuments to fathers of nations and
Prophets murdered by your ancestors... doctrine
Of descent does the killing - mothers gave birth
You built the tombs now the take away the key of
Knowledge - unlocking the door but blocking
The way of those still marching on soon about to
Enter - give it up white boy - emotionless words
Beware to those who load people down crushed
Under the burden of laws and regulations
But do nothing to help protect them -the spirit
Has means by word to animate undiscovered truth
The wisdom to say "March on...envoi to grace
That sends word by them - I will send them






(Page 2, Give It Up White Boy, Lee B. Mack)



Prophets and messengers -Some will be killed
Others will be persecuted' -this generation will
Answer for the set course and the duration
Of Ethos of coded races for the blood of
Prophets shed - since this world began from the
Abel from the garden to Zechariah of the course
Of priesthood of the alter kept for grace to come
For the course of Abia love receives and sends
Waves of light at warp speed - come to embrace
Before letting go - hold onto the spirit and soul
With hands stretched out that won't let go beware
Those called to think themselves perfect
Life is obedience to the law and who pay the tax
On interest and money to promises not joy
Ignores impartiality -forgiveness and moral hazard
As practiced good matters as well… "Wash
The outside of your cups and plates - the inside
Filled with thoughts of greed and theft - Didn't
The one who made the outside make the inside too?
Wash inside the cup and It will all be clean…"






(Page 3, Give It Up White Boy, Lee B. Mack)



Give it up white boy - in the face of spell
Binding law unwilling to bow to grace -white
Masked face of fathers eat from the tables of
Sons enslaved and indentured to insolvency
Seek to find the gift-child left behind to roam
To find rest - there will come other boats from
African coasts to cast about to places of
Shipping the global goods to appear in
Places rebuked of mixed multitudes… the slave nor
Servant labors for meat that perishes bleeding
Inside huts -to burn under the sun in share crop
Fields - but rather the meat you did eat
With the loaves prepared in snow - Which the Son
Of man shall give sealed by the True Father in
Holy masks for fathers whose work is grace that
You will believe on him - the one sent
Out from the moral shores to lands of promise of
Miracles - not all seeking minstrels in white
Facemasks rather relatives of half-black babies
Freed by rhetorical honor eating true bread
Give it up white boy...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The mask on the face of earth looks like the face of the moon in
the minstrel night...
- Flesh turned to true bread has no face - no mirror - no idols...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
