    "We'd have socialism, were it not for the
    Invention of the "white race" following
    Bacon's Rebellion, 1676-77; the credit
    Card; the l950s; and The Church of The


    I love those 3-4 defenses that pursue and attack
    The bull-rush, spin move, pick-six, strip sack,
    De-cleating blocks, and those big "woo-licks-"
    Timely defensed passes and the blocked kicks
    Knowing pick stats of millionaire cornerbacks
    But, not being blindsided by capitalist attacks
    Cause capitalism's like football, a "game of inches"
    Called class war: Goldman sacks, Merrill lynches


    Offside: Encroachment on Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga Cayuga,
    Creek, Shawnee, Cherokee, Choctaw, Seminole, Ohlone ... Land
    False start: "Manifest Destiny" moves masking genocidal land
    grabs-this land is whose land?


    Illegal shift: Of African healers, scholars, artisans, farmers
    from the Motherland of Humankind to strange, stolen North
    American hunting grounds ...

    Holding: Millions of Mandinka, Ibo, Ashanti, Fulani, Yoruba,
    Wolof, Bakongo, Dogan, Fon, Bobo, Senufo ... as tools, property
    for enriching julep-sipping founding fathers, 1% "white" men of
    means ...

    I love droppin' out, turnin' off and really tunin' in
    To that choreographed violence over pigskin
    Not sly, soft selling of $elections to erections-
    Or, wars marketed as "weapons inspections"
    To passive consumers enslaved by corporations-
    Neglecting our communities and organizations
    Deaf to the clarion call of Douglass for agitation
    Succumbing to stealth,
    psy-op-like, pacification ...


    Intentional grounding: 9/11 False Flag Op for eternal wars "on
    terror" and war profiteering "on terror ... "

    Too many men on the field: In Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan,
    Yemen, Libya, Syria, Iran, Mali. .. killing, maiming, raping,
    pillaging, poisoning, polluting our planet...


    Illegal Motion: Largest strip-sack of wealth since the great
    white fathers marched manifest destiny downfield with slavery,
    creating a red zone 'cross the continent, running up the score ...

    Illegal use of the hands: Banksters and brokers bootlegging
    everything from credit default swaps and sub-prime loans to
    bailouts and no-bid, multi-billion arms deals with dictators,
    despots and tyrants ...

    Like zebras, I love spotting yard lines the ball's on-
    Not drawn offside by hard counts of the Pentagon
    Knowin' my team's IR, practice squad, to who's startin'
    Yet, not getting' played by Boeing, or *Lockheed-Martin


    Illegal forward Pass: $16 trillion plus and spiraling to Wall
    Street wideouts from the offal office's drop back pocket-passing
    quarterback ...

    Ineligible receiver downfield: Shadowy form like treasury
    secretary or fed chair, with stickum-stained hands, acting as


    Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Sergeants Pepperspray gassing
    "their own people," anguished shrieks, thuds of baton blows
    reigning on skulls, plastic cuffs placed so tightly on wrists,
    circulation of any daring to Occupy Wall Street is cut off ...

    Delay Of Game: 2-4 year $election charades, Republicrat-
    Democon "lesser evil" fear-mongering, chop-blocking
    independent politics of the working class' ...


    Be-set play clock ... Moving the Super Bowl from February-
    African-American History Month, the shortest month of the
    year-back to January where it was pre-false-flag op 2001; Re-

    Mother Earth ...

    (Ticking clock)

    Back when TV went digital, it left me behind
    But, dislodged my ass and freed up my mind
    From way too many years of Sundays misspent
    Offensive coordinators of capitalist hell-
    Predatory priests, Church Of The NFL!
