You cannot make me talk about any of the current headlined news.
I am a direct product of Rhythm & Blues;
therefore, on some points I do refuse

to talk about.
I don’t want no parts of it in my mouth,

like

We are 4.25% of the world pop but 1/4 of the corona cases are ours.
We used to be good wine to sip, today’s fumes indicate wine sour.

I hope to goodness that we are not drunk.
We laughed at Pepe LePew, but we are the skunk

big-bang-theory_zipped-lipsand I don’t want to talk about it; you can’t make me.
Stuff like that will drive your ego and status quo crazy.

Things look a little hazy, so we’re going to have to close down the city.
Again? Did we reopen too soon? Now the Governors look silly.

There’s nothing willy-nilly about the number of American lives that have been lost.
Shutting down the country until we find out what’s what — is not too much of a cost.

Is it?
Aw man, forget it.

I don’t want to talk about society – I pray thee.
It’s all a bit much and you can’t make me.

The people of MS took a vote and decided to forgo historical vain.
They returned with a strong tally reflecting the people want change.

raise-hand

I’m about unity, the cohesiveness of me and you,
therefore I have not been bothered with the removal of racist statues.

It’s not a pleasant thing to talk about and they were never pleasant to see.
I am for striking up conversation on the good that tomorrow may bring.

The world is watching us and when we march they lock-in step.
We may have snafued and skewed our view with the last prez-elect.

But

  • November will yield us opportunity to score a different view.
    You can’t make me talk about itjust so happens that I want to.

It’s okay to talk about tomorrow, for tomorrow holds our future.
It’s okay to heal from the surreal; let new unity provide the suture.

I woke up to a table full of topics and brand new polls
19% like the direction we’re headed in; God bless our souls.

Infection numbers are firmly in the red.
The bed we makeis indeed our bed.

Give it thought and make it with care.

Social media issues on Facebook are being scrutinized
for spreading hate, disseminate and deep division thrive.

Don’t allow a social device
to impose on your future life.

It ain’t worth it.
About division: skirt it.

I really don’t want to talk about anything devised to divide; anything to shake we.
I’m a child of God, I speak on fraud. Be quiet? You can’t make me.

Corporations are vowing to retreat marketing funds
from the social media that’s leading ya.’ Dun-dun-dun-dunnn.

That’s the scary music. Somebody had to tout it.
Politics look like a schtick; I don’t want to talk about it.

Today is Hump Day and I’m in route to stand on top of it.

A topic talker, selective walker. Kicking it with you? I love it.

YOU are always the perfect subject.

The grass is a bit high, perhaps it is time to do something about it.
There’s a mower for every situation; forgo any thoughts to doubt it.

You can do it.

If at first the engine seems sluggish or plagued with over-flood…
approach the hood with compassion for good, then bond over patriotic  blood.

Friends are putting in crazy amounts of Energetic LOVE.

Sometimes there’s no mayhem or unusual system malfunctions.
Sometimes we just need to push in the right direction to hone and control functions.

In addition to LeBron and Maverick, there are others producing moves that division-quell,

Think of life as a pizza and make it like you like it.
Coffee is basically black though Bailey’s will always spike it.

Whatever works for you…

I’m just saying life is at hand please live it out loud.
Appreciate yourself for standing out from the crowd.

You are quite unique and of you, God is quite fond.
You rarely look at what is; you innately look beyond.

Pizza is what you make of it and I’ve been watching you make yours.
I chronicle about you every-other-day; you are quite the combo score.

Thanks for coming through. For your life contributions – I thank you even more,

Good afternoon to thee. Your combo chemistry is not ever a bore. I stand to bear witness to your comprehensive soar.

Your pizza looks good and your coffee is strong.

 

BRACED

hug-yourself

Orthodontics is my choice of brace.

I have been “holding it together” for the last 26 months non-stop!
I removed my 2 bicuspids to help out; though at ease — I am not.

Season have changed two times over, from cooler weather to hot —
and I remain in a Griot frame; my ortho treatment is like Hip Hop.

Ligating Braces don’t stop; the process is a revolving one; a song.
I had the choice to break my jaw bones, or commit to braces; go long.

I chose to “go long;” I’m a quarterback on this pass.
However proper my choice, these wires are on my…. ASK

me one thing that I would change if I could?
I’d have researched WHY George Washington’s teeth were made of wood?

I’m sure his manufactured dental set was ‘the best’ in his day/in his hood.
But to chew steak thoroughly — his teeth were probably of no good.

This I’ve always understood, but why have wooden teeth in George’s day?
No one has confirmed his dental churns; though I think he had issues with his TMJ.

I know that I do —
because Carne Asade is difficult chew,

but I get it in.
TMJD is just not my friend.

TMJD is preventable and I am in the process of reverse.
For as much as it pains me to eat — I still have girth.

What good is a TMJ worth, if in fact,
I can’t eat salads and the chips will yield fat?

Why not eat those delicious salads – you ask, after all they are a treat?
My bite is mismatched and is no good for chewing-up green leaves.

Unfortunately,
few leaves ever meet
between my teeth.

Roughage just isn’t big enough.
Chips and cookies yield more bulk

in my mouth.
They also yield to “biological fat pockets” from the south.

I’m 26-months in and braced well, though my teeth are still moving.
Drinking water is a sensitive subject for me; too hot or cold induces drooling.

screaming-lady

Its just room-temperature water, tho…

Drinking cold water feels comparable to biting into ice cream.
But I’m not eating ice cream, I’m just thirsty and restraining a scream.

I’m good. I’m good. My orthodontic work is for a very good cause.
I’m trying to fix the bite of my teeth; the undertaking requires much gall.

I’ve got the gall. I’ve also got strength and on this Monday morning I am thrilled to have you.

Good morning kinfolk, BRACE yourself for a warmer vibe to come through.

You may not be concerned about your teeth,
but Summer came in the other day and she’s packing heat.

As for me and my teeth… What ever will we do today?
I will hit the home-gym to warm-up & hem the fascia around my TMJ.
I’ll also have several other gadgets on hand to put into play:

Cervical Traction Device for TMJ

I place it on the floor, lay my neck on it and zone out/fall asleep.

RAD Point Release Kit-Myofascial Release Tool Kit

I use the balls to massage my back, neck, shoulders and hands. Click here to see how.

USB Heated Neck Wrap for Pain Relief

Once I’m done releasing myofascial knots in my neck and shoulder I relax it with a heating pad that has auto shut-off in 30 minutes.

Birthed of the Earth you have been nourished and loved
you’ve heard of connective-tales of how you were sent from above.

Good morning dear Father – Good morning beloved Daddy.
I’m bright eyed and bushy tailed; I’m so glad that you had me!

Good morning male child, who is mono in this world,
Today it’s you and your family – tomorrow it’s you and your girl.

For those who are “in their tomorrow or are actively procreating,
this day was made for your male awesome’ness. ‘Tis no debating.

You are rigid, you are solid, you are true.
Folks say I look like my dad and my mind goes straight to you.

Thoughts like, “He is rather good looking – isn’t he?” and “Gosh he’s so cute.”
Then I look in the mirror and thank God for good fruit. I am your reflective suit.

Dad’s way of showing love…

We are all very similar, just different version of,
so when that little one acts up, like you used to — give them more love.

They are part of you; 50% is what you put in.
They are not disrespectful varmin; they are your kin.

Fruit is good; your fruit especially.
Mason them not in a jar like sacred jelly.

What grows in woman’s belly is a contribution to life.
Behold the man who seeds her; making the two of them “thrice”.

If you have a jewel of a father in your sight or midst,
I pray thee rise, with wide eyes, and make him breakfast.

Are you an “I” contribution? Have you made an “I” contribution of your own?
Either way, celebrate today – you’re beloved whether child or grown.

Hug dad more!

Males are  born with the weight of strength on their shoulders; per the structure of societal nature.
And though many may take your shoulders for granted – not your Dad, because he made ya.’

Are you a dad? If you are – then you know what I’m talking about.
You are “all of that” to your children; believe that —  with no doubt.

We consider you to be strong, much like Superman.
We often think “all will be well” if Daddy holds our hand.

You are amazing in every scene of our lives when you are not away at work.
You’re so amazing that we all need a day to celebrate your necessary worth.

This morning is beautiful, starting with its early morning dew.
Good morning to every “I” Contribution alive – I am just like you.

Thank God for our parents; our fathers DNA came through.
My “I” Contribution to the internet rests in this view.

I compose griot/poetry/sonnets to chronicle your good.

I think it’s okay for an “I” Contribution to parallel flesh.
I compose Qui Creative Content to keeps the lobe wet. check-mark

our beloved Common is Pop Lynn’s “I Contribution.”

Unity in the Global Community.

Good morning good people and how do you do?
I’m up early to compose an index; call me “Collaborative Who.”

Inquisition is all over me and chronicling is simply what I do.
My name is Qui (pronounced Key). Please tell me, WHO are you?

How are you doing today and are you focused on a goal?
Were you born to live and die or is there purpose to your soul?

For all who have awakened to the darkness of complexion disrespect
who are wondering WHAT CAN WE DO? Rt Pt Arrow This is your next.

WHY should you get involved in crafting a better world?
Because life is full of surprises; we must learn to hone this girl.

Life begets life and yields familiar lows & highs, though only a blinded fool
would believe that disrespecting others is okay, but for himself – ‘tis against the rules.

Poo always rolls downhill and protecting yourself from it – has never been fun.
As a minority in America, it brings me no joy that all races are ‘getting some.’

Respect begets respect. Please respect me, because I love to respect you.
Streaming unity into our global community yields new respect for YOUTUBE.

I graduated last month and to my surprise the celebratory events have been plenty —
YouTube, Beyonce, the Obama’s threw us a LIVE STREAM titled: Dear Class of 2020.

Most societies are in class right now as global protesting rocks the world,
Who me? I’m just SEWING UP SOME LOVE over here; I’m a hippy offspring girl.

I’m all about love; let it shine, let it shine.
And when the outpour of love is huge it produces long LINES.

And that’s fine; when you’re passionate about a thing you don’t let up – but you stay on it.
I think your actions are admirable; you’re focused on LOOKING BEYOND THE MOMENT.

We’re in sync. I, too am looking; I am focused and chronicling on-cue,

Both George and Georgia had long lines yesterday and it was worth it. It was sooo worth it.
If as a nation we’re pregnant with unity – lines for these times will birth it.

Georgia is in labor; push-push-push-breathe!
Regurgitate how you’ve been living as of late and vote heave.

The sweat on your brow is beautiful. I pray every single vote connects.
Voting is the American way (in addition to pray) to get annoyances off of our neck.

Necks are precious as is the current movement and memory of George Floyd.
He lost his voice a couple of weeks ago, though he gifted us united noise.

I know this is only the 3rd day of the week, but I lie to you not -I do feel a little worn,
Floyd Mayweather, Rev. Sharpton and the global community know how to sound an alarm.

I can’t get over the outpour of love shown around the world.
I pray for us collectively and every parent-less boy and girl…

rose-searchlightregardless of your age if you lost your parent or family member to violence,
this publication of love is for you; you do not have to mourn in silence.

The spirit of collected care is in the air and it is yours for the taking, too.
Indulge in love and heal on the truths. I’m over here thinking about you.

Long were the lines to vote in Georgia yesterday;
no hanging chads or shenanigans to follow, I pray.

As long as those wait lines were – the news clips did show
chairs and comfy shoes being worn by patient and patriotic folk.

MY VOTE DON’T COUNT” is better than a PSA on VOTING

The American people are energized to vote; I, too am one.
Inserting gamification into life; voting effects the sum.

What Can We Do?

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on June 3, 2020 at 3:38 pm

Earlier this evening about 17 minutes after 5 —
President O made BREAKING NEWS and he did it “live.”

Did you see it? Did you see it? Big Leo speaks truth
when he says the future will very well be delivered by our youth.

It always has.
Rev. MLK started marching as a lad…

President Obama reminded us of that.
Via our youth, we can get our mojo back.

The children demand that we “reimagine the police.”
He also encouraged our finest (career servants of peace)

to continue to engage with civilians that consist in every hood.
Because when we all work together we produce the most good.

President O still believes in us as we still believe in change.
Change takes place through voting; here’s his bullet point lane:

WHAT CAN WE DO?

headscratcher

We can figure this out.
Baby Scratching GIF from Baby GIFs

#1. We know there are specific evidence based reforms that if we put in place today would belter us up and save lives, would not show any increase in crime – those are included in the 21st Century Policing Task Force Report. You can find it on Obama.org.

#2. A lot of mayors and local officials read and support the task force report and then there wasn’t enough follow through. Today I am urging every mayor in this country to review your use of FORCE POLICIES with members of your community and commit to report on planned reforms. What are the specific steps that you can take? I should add, by the way, that the original task force report was done several ago – since that time we’ve actually collected data in part because we implemented some of these reform ideas. We now have more information and more data as to what works. And there are organizations like Campaign Zero and Color of Change and others that are out there highlighting what the data shows, what works and what doesn’t in terms of reducing incidents of police misconduct and violence. Let’s go ahead and start implementing those. So we need mayors, county executives, others who are in positions of power to say this is a prior – this is a specific response.

#3. Every city in this country should be a MY BROTHERS KEEPER commune. Because we have 250 cities and tribal nations who are working to reduce the barriers and expand opportunity for boys and young men of color with programs, policy reforms and public and private partnerships. So, go to our website and get working with that because it can make a difference.

“And let me just close by saying this — I’ve heard some people say that ‘You have a pandemic then you have these protests, this reminds people of the ’60’s and the chaos and the discord and distrust throughout the country… I have to tell you though I was very young, you had the discord and assassinations back in the ’60’s. I know enough about that history to say there is something different here.

You look at those protests — that was a far more representative cross section of America out on the streets peacefully protesting and who felt moved to do something because of the injustices that they had seen. That didn’t exist back in the 1960’s. That kind of broad coalition.

The fact that recent surveys have shown that despite some protest having then been marred by the actions of some; a tiny minority that engaged in violence; that despite (as usual) it [violence] got a lot of attention and a lot of focus — the majority of Americans still think that the protest was justified. That wouldn’t have existed 30-40 years ago.

There is a change in mindset that is taking place; a greater recognition that we can do better. That is not as a consequence of speeches by politicians, it’s the not the result of spotlights in news articles — this is a direct result of the activities & organizing and mobilization & and engagement of so many young people across the country who put themselves out on the line to make a difference.

So, I just have to say THANK YOU to them for helping to bring about this moment and just make sure that we now follow through. Because at some point, you know, attention moves away; at some point protests start to dwindle in size. It’s important for us to take the momentum that has been created as a society, as a country and say Let’s use this to finally have an impact. Alright?

Thank you ever body. I’m proud of you guys.  I know that we’re going to be hearing from a bunch of people who have been on the front lines of this who know a lot more than I do about it. ‘Proud of you. ”  – President Obama

The SNOWPIERCER is Ramping Up

Any chance that you’ve been watching prime time tv?
Perhaps on Sunday nights, maybe a little TNT?

If you have not, then do consider it, please.
Snowpiercer is a cold ride of legacy.

If you saw the film, and I confess that I did not,
you may or may not like this series a lot.

I have heard comments from both groups.
Contrasting views span the youths.

The span of youth is equal to ages 8 to 80.
The fact that humanity is reduced to a train ride is equator crazy.

Peep the tracks of review;
I’m hoping to sit somewhere next to you.
