Hear the Words

Hear my words this afternoon,
coz you wont get them inna de mornin'
Hear my words that awakes slippin'
wake up and relieve your pain,

Hear my words and do a thinkin'
Give to me ya ears fi listernin'
Hear my words though me picknin'
hear my sound hesistatin'

Hear my words and ever runnin'
These are wi words fi King.
Hear my words as sun rising'
Wait not time of fire burning.

Hear my words sistren and bredren'
Coz if u miss, there no chance again'
Hear my words of teachin'
These words go comfort ur livin'

Re read before u slipin'
These go ressurect the dyin'
Hear my words before to plan a killin'
These words go guide ur changin'

Hear my words you the evil king'
These words go made emancipating,
Hear my words and do a writting.
These words aint no story telling.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
