Favorite Quote:
The Guy in the Glass



When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,

And the world makes you King for a day,

Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,

And see what that guy has to say.



For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,

Who judgement upon you must pass.

The feller whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the guy staring back from the glass.



He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,

For he's with you clear up to the end,

And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the guy in the glass is your friend.



You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,

And think you're a wonderful guy,

But the man in the glass says you're only a bum

If you can't look him straight in the eye.



You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,

And get pats on the back as you pass,

But your final reward will be heartaches and tears

If you've cheated the guy in the glass.

Africa & Today



In the fluffed heavenly clouds,


Against the savannas lonely Acacia tree,

Beneath the precious jewels of the Sahara,

Along the Niles ever flowing riverbank,

Through the Kenyan plains tall grasses,

Beyond the middle eastern sands,

Around Nubia’s granite cliffs,

Before the fall of grand Egypt and its power,

After the fall of man in Eden,

Among Ethiopia’s poverty,

During Ghana’s new outlook on life,

Except for Libya’s political influence,

By God showing his wrath to Pagan worship,

Besides being part white as most of us are,

Between mental and physical enslavement,

Past the forgotten Emancipation Proclamation

Underneath the abominations of earths forgotten treasure

For the sakes of my forefathers both Black and White

Instead of being held in present day Black American bondage,

Africa is my place to be.
