Tongues

Tongues can be as powerful as weapons
mouths to let it out
the young see the future and want to shout
determined to plan the outcome even at fallout
some never learn, some learn too well
life on earth is certainly heaven and hell
never seen in between
since peepin whats happening on the scene
Catch me on the corner with other rhymers in my team
Lawyers, engineers and writers of magazines
Freedom fighters with day jobs and dishes to clean
at home, meditate problems as their lifted we solve them
Constant concentration to gift this present shift in momentum
Come get some
One taught another about why we breathe with our stomach
One man, One vote is not what we got in this Republic
Election campaigns painfully protrude into public like puppets

It’s pretty difficult to talk politics and not insult
open wounds of my nation only get more salt
the leaders are pointing fingers and fault

Thank god for tongues
and that which we will do to have done
some fun, but mostly work by the ton

Shine brighter than the sun
Louder than a gun
soaking up life like a sponge
-from Mr. John Tabrizi,
your son in this family
