    dotsLand Of The Sandots
    -------------------------------------------


    I'm from the land of the Kalahari
    My paragraphs speak for me
    As I walk it's savage dark streets in silence.
    Scenes of violence
    Seen between the blue flashes
    Of the Police's lights and screaming sirens
    I need my teachers guidence
    As I tread this path with trepidation
    I dread this part
    Select a card don't keep the devil waitin'
    It's time ta play ya hand
    Kid new to the block
    The innitiation kill then rape her
    In full veiw of the cops
    You either do or get shot
    It's her life or it's yours
    I turned to Rhyme they turn to crime
    I wonder which one'll endure
    You already know the answer
    I'm the dancer with wolves in sheeps clothing
    As sheet lightning flickers across the sky
    I keep Flowing ((the streets poem))

    "Southern Africa
    The bottom of the world
    The deepest darkest
    Secret that you heard
    Southern Africa
    The problem of the earth
    Where people laugh
    At these starving boys and girls"

    Welcome to the Capital of Rape
    An up-close and personal veiw
    That begs the question
    What a person to do
    When a fucken lie isn't worse then the truth
    When the majority's ruled by the minority
    They're perverse and persue
    A life of luxury by trusting thieves
    And its discussed in the news
    His disgusting gut is busting
    Kids have nothing to chew
    And they just want something to choose
    For themselves instead it's hell
    They delve for
    Jumping head first to an empty well
    To try to quench their thirst
    Who's name should I metion first
    Who's shame should I pen on paper
    Who's game could I end, insert
    Another fifty cents
    And quickly replay this hell on earth
    Another day a mothers slave
    Dug his grave nothing personal ((it's just work))

    "Southern Africa
    The bottom of the world
    The deepest darkest
    Secret that you heard
    Southern Africa
    The problem of the earth
    Where people laugh
    At these starving boys and girls"

    My hearts a barren desert
    Like the Skeleton Coast
    I've buried my close brethren friends
    Forgettin it NO
    Like an elephant don't
    I might be stepping on toes
    But have you ever seen the decor
    In my Presidents home
    While my grandmothers home alone
    Hiding behind bur'g'lar bars
    Like She's in prison with 'em bur'g'lars
    Who murder for cars
    They broke the security gate
    Invaided her bachelor flat
    Stole all her earthly possesions
    This is Africa FACT
    Smiling to your face teeth bared
    Stabbing ya in the back
    Then snatching ya leather bag
    It's a grab the funds and run man
    It's a pack ya stuff and duck man
    Its either you or it's them
    Cause if they did it once thrust me
    They gonna do it again...


    "Southern Africa
    The bottom of the world
    The deepest darkest
    Secret that you heard
    Southern Africa
    The problem of the earth
    Where people laugh
    At these starving boys and girls
    Southern Africa
    The bottom of the world
    The deepest darkest
    Secret that you heard
    Southern Africa
    The problem of the earth
    Where people laugh
    At these starving boys and girls"

      Africa is not the only place of pain and misery, i've traveld these U.S.States, read the news and watched T.V. news, violence is world wide. It's wrong that so much more is going on in Africa, but one day it will all end. This is the promise of GOD..

      Your entire work was beautiful. I'm sorry that you miss your home, I hope that you can return to visit it. I enjoyed reading this as I, obviously, am not from Africa. I liked seeing your perspective on your own "mother nation".

    It sounds like a difficult thing to miss this place. We will always miss home, that I know for certain. I like your punctuation, I thought it kept the piece flowing in a more raw, uncensored way to leave out all those pesky commas and periods.

    Great work :)

      Well, I enjoy my own work LOL
    Perhaps I should be more consistant with the punctuation...hmmm

    :P
