The Forbidden Book Stack - by A.B.King

   Once upon a time there lived a little girl name Sandra. She grew up in a home that had all the wonderful material things that life had to offer. Sandra’s parents weren’t Christians but they were the kind of people whose Christianity went only as far as ticking Christianity anytime they filled a form that asked about their religion, also if they were really bored on Christmas day because what they had planned to do wasn’t as satisfying as they might had anticipated, then they might stroll into any close by church they see that looks good from the outside.   Sandra on the other hand liked to go to a Church near their house because: she had friends there, she enjoyed the sermons in the Children’s church, she taught the teacher there was fun, but most importantly she wanted to have a relationship with Jesus.   Sandra wasn’t forced to go to church and she was only allowed to go to church as far as her personal maid escorted her.   One day, Sandra’s Mum walks into Sandra’s room and finds her reading a book for grown ups. Sandra’s Mum collects the book from her and tells her not to read such books that she’s too young to read such books. She tells her that anytime she sees a book, movie or music CD with a warning on it indicating that it is for adults she should stay away from it because the information in it can ruin a younger audience.   Technically, anything that can ruin a kid can ruin an adult, but Sandra’s Mum didn’t know that. What she knew, even though it wasn’t 100% correct was quite helpful and it was what she had just told Sandra.   Sandra however felt that her Mum was just being a Mum. She underestimated how intelligent she was. Surely, anything an adult can handle she can also handle. So Sandra still went ahead and read the books behind her Mum’s back. Most of the books belonged to her Mum and her Mum would stack them in her own personal wardrobe which was different from her husband’s wardrobe.   The books didn’t contain unclean images but they contained a certain percentage of inappropriate language.   Sandra could hear a voice in her head telling her that she shouldn’t continue reading the books, that the books are not good for her but Sandra casts the voice aside and continued to sneak into her Mum’s wardrobe to pinch books as long as they weren’t one of the ones at the very top of the various rows of books.   Sandra enjoyed reading the books and hiding them under her pillow anytime she heard her Mum’s footsteps coming towards her room for a lovely & fun Mother – Daughter chat.One day, Sandra talks to her friends in school about what she read the previous day.The next thing you know everybody was calling Sandra a rotten girl. Next, she is in the principal’s office with a very angry principal calling her parents.   Guess who ended up getting spanked later on big time at home?   Next time, when Sandra is given instructions she wouldn’t think it’s wise to disobey.
The End.

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/

The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
