To Rat Or Not To Rat - by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in the city of Port harcourt, a classroom full of students stood silently staring at the school teacher with a cane in his hand. He was very angry and was going to punish a student but he didn’t know who or so it seemed.   Somebody had played a practically joke on the teacher by pouring some smelly sticky goo on his sit.   The teacher stood there asking them who it was.   James was a Christian boy. He like all the other students in the classroom knew who it was but the question was would he talk. Talking would make him a rat. Talking would make the other kids tag him as uncool. Talking might make the other kids stop talking to him.   James decided he won’t talk just like everybody else. If the teacher was going to give them all capital punishment so be it.   James then remembered a sermon he had heard in church. It was; “It’s better to walk to heaven alone than to walk to hell with the all the friends in the world.”   That’s when James knew what he had to do. He knew he had to do the right thing. He told the teacher who did it.   Oh! now he was going to get it. Now after the teacher punished the guilty student James would he hated by his classmates. However, James was suprised that it was all a plan by the teacher and James’ classmates to test James’ honesty and integrity. He had passed and from that day on he was held in high regard by all the teachers who heard of it and the students too.   So you see, it pays to do the right thing.
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/


The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
