under the death ray: deathray universe worlds earth

diverse – the inhabitants infinite – the realities finite – what you see under the death ray of a star already dead

the giver of holographic light

causing moisture to drop from your head as you drop a seed in the soil

so the death ray can give it life

so your family can eat next spring if thru the winter -

you survive

upside down smiles match cloudy skies

[scene-1] [urban movie theater-1990's]

Voltron unite - 5 parts 1 ​being

time to take flight

the fuel ain't gasoline

funny how the pilot looks like

Ben Vareen

down to the mini fro

with the afro sheen

sharp crease in his pants

buttoned up long sleeve

nickels in penny loafers

and an aim to please

[scene-2] fear trickles from the heart

as he peeps the scene ———[observes his surroundings]

time to exit stage left

get away straight clean

[scene-3] gunshots and screams

this ain't the place to be

unless you’re watching —— [any Arnold Schwarzenegger film]

on the movie screen

popcorn in a box

brown bag Jim Bean

loud theater in the hood

phones ring “ice cream” ——— [Wu-Tang Clan song]

or whatever song was ——— [1990's] hot

on MTV or BET

not the place to be

[scene-4] mad heads ———-[many people] taking pulls

off the ganja leaf

thick smoke in the air

black lips gold teeth

footprint on crisp Timbs ————[Timberland construction boots]

niggas get angry

big egos under pressure

can’t say “sorry”

[scene-5] working men ————-[drug dealers] pull hammers ————[firearms]

about to get ugly

it’s Vietnam all over

as the fingers squeeze

not caring end result

gonna turn deadly

[scene-6] hollow tips bust vessels and arteries

BREAK BONES

put holes in new white tees

BREAK HOMES

got a mother crying on her knees

asking why her baby gotta wear white wings

and leave this earth way before he got his legs

before he got a job

before he had a family

before he even had a chance

to shave the fuzz on his chin

now she's gotta bury him

in a wooden bin

put him in the ground

put him under the earth

it’s a day she won’t forget

it will always ​hurt

its so easy. EASY [chapter 1] on the last Christmas past

he OD'd on Johnson’s Baby Powder

after a quick wash-up

with some alcohol pads

nuts smell like clam chowder

from some new cut -

he dipped in the night before

he stares in the mirror

and scrapes his underarms

with the last smudge of Arm & Hammer

roll on roll on

stressing on

where to get the funds

to pay for that one room apartment

apartment

six children sleep on the floor

all squeezed on a tiny carpet

carpet

[chapter 2] in the dead of winter

they all huddle around a stove

which

fed their once nuclear

family

for the last six Christmases

when “Santa” rolled off the lips of toddlers

inspecting

colorful boxes

shadowed ​by pine

and filled with things

from a long wish list

but- atomic blast

mom died

and time stood still and stopped flying

tears fell

now big brother

becomes a giant

[chapter 3] now he has to provide

for innocence lost

not just simple chores

like trash or the dishes

it ain't easy to survive

life is just like DUI

so some stay steady

crashing into ditches

he’s just a kid taking care of kids

inexperienced

in handling adult situations

it wasn’t raining it was pouring

so they resort to low wage jobs

and simply whoring

[epilogue] now he hits the snooze alarm

ready to die?bask22 if you were to go today

how many accomplishments have you made?

are you proud of what you've done?

and were there lives that you've affected?

are you proud of whom you've touched?

only you can answer these questions

only you can

you ready to die?

[chapter-1] leaning against a tombstone

with no one around

grass blows from the breeze

blowing grass from your mouth

weeds choke out the vegetation

that’s all about

willow trees hang low

like the locks on Bob’s scalp

heart palpitations increase

as the day grows old

stone blocks in the earth

now rep what used to hold a soul

now bones rot in a plot

until its soil in a box

it’s funny how life can be explained

from the words on a rock

[chapter-2] where does a person go

after they leave their shell cell?

ancient tales tell stories that stand by themselves

many men have fallen victim to exaggerations of the afterlife

so they try to walk the straight and narrow

they try to live longer than their own bone marrow

just so they can play a harp and

shoot-off a few arrows

[chapter-3] if you were to go today

how many accomplishments have you made?

are you proud of what you've done?

and were there lives that you've affected?

are you proud of whom you've touched?

only you can answer these questions

only you can

you ready to die?

[chapter-4] how long will the pain last

before death comes knocking?

whether injured from a bomb blast

or a razor piercing your epiglottis

it’s hard to realize and

face the face of death

it’s hard to conceptualize

the time of your last breath

[chapter-4] how would you like to go?

in your sleep?

there’s a 1% chance

that that’s how death is going to creep

[chapter-5] most of us will die slow

we were born to die

most will suffer before they go

we’ll have time to cry

and cry and weep

and mourn our own existence

then sigh in defeat

as our bodies

put up that last resistance

[epilogue] if you were to go today

how many accomplishments have you made?

are you proud of what you've done?

and were there lives that you've affected?

are you proud of whom you've touched?

only you can answer these questions

only you can

you ready to die?

life. here. again. [subject-1] lifehereagain1 temples fight temples in a war with the mirror

pimples get popped and turn black

so who's the hero?

who's the emperor? who is the sage?

who documents the story? who turns the page?

who walks towards glory? who walks in a haze?

swearing- they can see clearly

eyes shut wide when the sun shines

other eyes come alive at the moon rise

to feed on the prize to feed on the christ

who doesn't know he's divine

because he's ignorant he pays the price

life. here. again.

life. here. again. [subject-2] she she's sassy she sashays’

she believes what she sees

on the tv

she hates what she sees when she sees

she

so she does everything not to be the-

image which she views on the daily

so she-

puts a weave in her hair

bleaches the skin

lightens the eyes

enlarges the breasts

fattens the ass

changes the mind

no longer divine

no longer divine

eyes shut wide when the sun shines

other eyes come alive when the moon rise

to feed on the prize to feed on the christ

who doesn't know she's divine

because she's ignorant she pays the price

life. here. again.

in the matrix inthematrix in the Matrix

you can't worship two gods

we live in two worlds who is your lord?

inner sun shines bright- through your skin

your pores are clogged

outer sun holographic

10th world domicile Malkuth school

force-fed cubic zirconia we shit rare jewels

here on the 10th Sephirah mind bullies rule

they're not all powerful think they are?

you're a fool

ignorance of law- they say is no excuse

yet they ignore the laws of nature-

need proof?

water pollution fish full of mercury

they float on oil slicks with the shit and the pee

cesspool-

drink fool- cup of tea

you feel the hatred Moor

the darker you be

unless you ascribe to modern policy

unless your king-dome is dethroned

obsolete

possessed with a mind where-

darkness runs free

track shoes of the Jinn

Satan is happy

in Voltron

there exists
no backseat

there's only one driver in each-

soul machine

ancient eyes behind the flesh

intently

observe you

walking corpse

living a dream

fearing lies told to you

while your sleep

like freedom is what you view

on your flat-screen TV ​ prime time off peak

the message we see?

ignorant as can be

like we-

are close kin to monkeys

but we?

are most aped in history

the whole world is our carbon copy

mankind wants to be like we

while we want to be anything

but the reflection

we truly see
