    Ghosts of the Past

    tortured since Babylonian holy-men and many various races
    ..who burned them like vermin, and then buried or raped them
    I'll never understand how a man could have the heart to face men,
    and truly feel that his part was to mark and erase them
    Now Holocaust specters rise ready to direct their barbarian hatred
    holding meat cleavers for all the leaders of the Aryan nation
    Nazi skin heads who worship Hitler left buried and faceless
    for standing stagnant in the steps of hate and refusing to vary their paces
    .
    .
    ...next...
    .
    .
    Slave ships for days drift – in the mist unseen and race in dark
    full of slave ghosts who crave most – to carve out white racist hearts
    crazed for the slavers whose only favor to them was life with out wages
    no light in their cages, strapped down, master most likely would rape them
    ..and now it's time for repayment, in that there's hardly a doubt
    ghosts of the past, awoken with wrath – ships land in the heart of the South
    they're already out - before it docks, transparent, eyes a flick of flames
    looking sick and crazed, bound some KKK up, with whips and chains
    ..next blood drips and drains from these sick men's manes
    let racism die, you waste of a life! – the ships then drift to planes,
    of the unknown and unfathomed chasms of dimensional space
    while homophobic zealots still believe they will see eventual grace
    people are people, isn't that yet clear – yet people simply still appear,
    to believe in deceiving hearts and teaching only ignorance and fear
    hell simply put is here – years of pain and only destitution
    the human race's a brutal race – and too many have yet to get a shoe in
    forces at work have arisen and decided retribution is the best solution
    chopping off history’s ugly head.. it's time now for the next execution
    .
    .
    ...you see...
    .
    .
    a major injustice, for certain is the poor, unheard of and ignored
    treated like a herd and then conformed; the word cant match the sword
    you cant afford the steel when you cant afford a meal, worthless to the core
    treated like tools they've come back now as ghouls cursed and full of scorn,
    ready to kill politicians born with silver spoons who never served a day in war
    yet still they sent out the young, to die by the plenty
    families inside felt so heavy - never worth more than a dime or a penny
    to the schemes and the dreams, of silver spoon pawn movers
    on a set coarse, high horse ego - from them it was doom in sewers;
    flood gates of society, whom have quietly come back from the dead
    rotten/forgotten masses have amassed to strike our masters with dread
    headed towards America's head figures ready to take a hack at their heads
    crawling up to capital hill, blood baths will spill, flaccid and red
    until every sin of man is washed away from this dream
    cleaning this sick torn land of all it's hate and it's schemes
    .
    .
    ...it seems...
    .
    .
    we need an apocalyptic terror, like spoken in omens of past
    treading to an amoral hell paved by the hopeless and crass
    a sea of wrongs that spreads wide sure as our ocean is vast
    our concept of lady liberty and justice remains frozen in glass
    never seen and locked away by egos which boast and attack,
    any voice or choice made to suggest they don't know all the facts
    religion's responsible for the most deaths ever, why have devotion to that?
    We're in hibernation as a nation whose yet to have woke from our nap
    yeah we could act exempt but it's still fact we have chosen this trap
    intellectuals grown lazy, the light of truth in our souls have grown black
    trying to hold on to truth as all our reasoning floats out our grasp
    a cavern the size Saturn
    has grown between reality and our mind and we can't close up the gap
    lost in current trends floating in a current which is flowing too fast
    life's a play and we only act how we suppose we are supposed to react
    acting to cocky to hide insecurities because true focus- we lack
    nothing but dust in the wind to a corporate ship, blowing its mast
    when I think about it all I really have to just ferociously laugh
    fuck fearing the holy ghost.. it's time to fear the ghosts of our past!​

    is this poetry? It seems more poetic than anything. It was tight, but just didn't seem like freestyle material. Maybe I am in the wrong section. Nice drop anyway.

    yo bro the flow scheme brings me back to ol viking or pirate type hymns
    very poetic in sense
    it rhymed, but what stood out more so, was the depth, and truth of it all...

    i mean u covered a lot of different bases and conveyed a message most havent thought about.

    non-stop heat coming from this, this is like new age gospel!

    can i say CHuuCH
