The Gift For The Cool Crowd - by A.B.King

   Once upon a time there lived a boy named Julius. He and his brother, Jimmy who was one year younger than him where both raised in a cute Christian home. The boys were particularly happy these days because it was Christmas season. Apart from the joys, the feel and the pleasure of the atmosphere of the season; the boys were excited that they would both get the XY 3000 which was the hottest thing on the market that season. As far as all “cool” boys in the continent and beyond where concerned, the XY 3000 was the ultimate Christmas gift that those who didn’t have it wished to receive.   The XY 3000 was the freshest and most advanced portable hand held gaming device to date.Julius and his friends dreamt of how they would play with it when they got it.   Julius and his younger brother, Jimmy even went as far as telling their parents what they wanted for Christmas. That way, they would be both be sure to get an XY 3000.   When the day for receiving Christmas gifts arrived, the boys couldn’t hold in their joy they were glad that they were finally going to receive a XY 3000, but to their surprise and dismay, they both get a totally different product that had most of the features of the XY 3000 but it was made by another manufacturer who made cheaper and affordable versions of most of the latest technology.   Although neither one of the boys complained to their parents out loud, in their heart Julius was very angry while Jimmy though disappointed decided to be content because he understood that his parents must have made their decision based on financial reasons. He had learnt to be content and grateful because he knew that that is what Jesus would want. And it really isn’t difficult to be content when you consider the fact that there are tons of kids around the world who have never gotten a Christmas gift in their lives, and there are some who the last thing on their mind is a Christmas gift not because they have something against Christmas gifts but because the doctor has told their parents that they won’t make it to the coming year.   However, Julius didn’t even think that far. He complained to Jimmy but Jimmy who saw things differently talks to him and tells him that he should be glad that he got a gift in the first place. That there is no law that suggests that their parents must give them gifts otherwise they are bad parents.   Later that day, when Julius goes out to play with his friends, all his friends are playing with their XY 3000s. They asked him if he didn’t get an XY 3000 as his Christmas gift when they don’t see him coming with one. Julius lies and says that he forgot his at home. He says that he has been playing with his all night long and now he wants to do something different for the mean time. He would get back to playing the game later.   Through out that day Julius carried the anger inside him that this parents didn’t get him what he told them to get him. Julius laments about it to his brother again but this time he tells him that he plans to rob a store that night in other to get an XY 3000. That way he can show it to his friends tomorrow and his friends wouldn’t know he had lied and he would still look cool to his friends.   Jimmy gives Julius a sermon which brillantly outlined a truck load of reasons why he shouldn’t do what he was planning to do. It was a truly touching sermon and at the end of it Julius said that he agrees not to do it. But the truth was that the sermon did not touch him at all. He had only lied to Jimmy so Jimmy would not tell their parents what he had said he would do, just to be on the safe side.   Julius was a stubborn boy. He had made up his mind that he would get an XY 3000 and whether anybody liked it or not he would get it.   That night Jimmy went out and robbed the store. His nefarious midnight mission was successful. He then thinks to himself that all those people who say that crime doesn’t pay don’t know what they are talking about. If you are slick enough you can get away with anything.Just after Julius had made his escape and had already jumped out the window. He met two of the store owners dogs; they were bulldogs. The dogs got to work quickly. They knew their job well.   Needless to say, Julius spent the rest of his Christmas wrapped up in bandages on a hospital bed and his so-called friends he wanted to look cool for laughed and laughed and laughed when they heard what happened to him.
The End.

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?/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

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/
