gems in the mega rough VOlume VIVI- Meaningful Moments of SOund

June 13, 2016

The solemn sound of my homeland/. I hear its howl on the wind from afar and turn my head, for I feel the rustle of leaves in the breeze upon dust covered branches of my soul. I turn to the only man I know who bears his soul in everything he creates. He ALWAYS means […]

hidden gems in the mega rough

August 29, 2014

  Sticking with the hippety-hop routine of the old days I begin this second aural escapade with a track by Common, who has made plenty of decent offerings, but this is surely the finest… Common – I used to love her My soul needs soothing and the following feel a righteous remedy: Pete Rock & […]

mother nature flipped a switch

April 21, 2014

Its the small, consistently available pleasures, which make a man happy, the more natural these pleasures, the better… a week or so back, Winter turned to Spring, mother nature flipped a switch, the gaze of the sun goddess returned, for at least a few hours every day, sometimes… those few hours fall upon that special […]

the first black man in the shite house

April 21, 2014

The first black man in the white house, I was one of the millions taken, with the idea that change was afoot, the root of global politics finally shaken.. the last chapter in the slavery book, closed and forgotten, the lynch mobs, ku klux clan, universally declared dead and rotten… a new era upon the […]

cut all suspect connections…

October 23, 2008

I thought this raft was made of feathers, But now I see, after a storm or three, That its made of wood, Im doing what I want, What my heart craves, Not what I should… The cave is tidy, My mother is at war with me but my lady and friends adore me, And I […]

What’s going on? (June 2006)

October 21, 2007

Whats going on? Does anyone else feel that everything is going real wrong? And that things are getting worse, For all those concerned, With working real hard, To make sure enough money is earned, So that we can pay the rent, So that we can pay the bills, So that we can treat ourselves now […]

pure venom in my face (april 07)

October 13, 2007

My heart has been battered, Hung, drawn and quartered, Dreams and plans rounded up in a line, Then ruthlessly slaughtered… By a girl, And the lies she sold me, She spat pure venom in my face, While I stood there three weeks ago, begging her to just hold me… Yeh there were some tears in […]

the heart of an ocelot cub

September 27, 2007

I am a Man of Words, Of chaotic, unbridled passion, Of intellectual potency. I am a Dreamer, A believer, An unchangeable idealist… I am a sufferer, Of an overabundance of Life, Of excessive feeling and thinking… I am Strange, Not through choice, But through Nature… I am a delicate fox in wolves’ clothing, Sometimes fierce, […]

Only love can break your heart…

June 30, 2007

Let this rhyme serve as a wake-up call, As A hefty slap in the face of the blind, The World is at war, and it’s getting worse, Pick up a paper and carnage is all you will find…   They call them terrorists, But they are just people fighting Back, Against the countries which after […]

the blood, the guts and butchers cleavers…

June 10, 2007

Back amongst the under achievers, The non believers, The blood, the guts and butcher’s cleavers..   Smiling at the same old faces, Wishing gamblers good luck as they purchase prawns before going to the races, Planning my next expedition into exotic far away places…   My second stint in this store, you could call it […]
