Poems of Knowledge. It's Serious.

A friend of mine, Eric X, recently showed me a poem he had written. I urge our readers to take a glance and let the words soak in.

Everybody's bad and everybody's tough, how many people are intelligent enough?
To open up there eyes and see through the lies, discipline themselves, yourself to stay alive.
Not many that's why the universe sent me today on this day with this to say,
The rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer and in the final hour many heads will loose power,
what does the rich versus poor really mean, psychologically it means you have to pick your team when someone said the rich gets richer, visualize wealth and put yourself in the picture.
The rich get richer cause they work towards rich, the poor gets poorer cause there mind can't switch from ghetto.
Let's go, it's not a novelty you could love your neighborhood without loving poverty,
Follow me, every mother, father, son and daughter.
There's no reason to fear the new world order, we must order the whole new world to pay us, the new world order and the old state chaos
The big brother watching over you is a lie you see,
The black African Man can build his own Secret Society,
But first you and I got to unify
Stop the Niggativity and control our creativity,
Rich is getting richer, so why we ain't richer
Could it be, we are still thinking like niggas
Educate yourself, make your world view bigger
Visualize wealth and put yourself in the picture
