We Have A Dog Just Like This In Our Home - by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a country called Nigeria, there lived a little kid called Frankie. He loved to show off and always felt that he had to compete with everybody or prove that he’s superior to everybody. He never liked a situation where another kid had something he didn’t have. Anytime a kid announces his parents just bought him something even though it was clearly against all etiquette and nobody asked him, Frankie would speak up and say he already has it.   Frankie’s younger brother who loved to always read the bible always admonished Frankie and will tell him to change but it only annoyed Frankie. Frankie would shove all his little brother’s words to the side and sometimes even slap him upside the head. Who does his younger brother think he is to give him advise? How dare he?   One cool day, Frankie and his younger visited the home of a new friend in another neighborhood quite a distance from theirs.   While there Frankie noticed they had a large dog chained to a post. It looked quiet and just like the one Frankie and his younger brother had at home. After Frankie finished telling his new friend that his father has a house just like theirs in another city, he told his new friend that they had a dog just like his at home.   Frankie started walking towards the dog that was chained to a post. The dog quietly watched Frankie walk towards it.   Frankie’s new friend asked him what he taught he was doing but the question only made Frankie angry, he felt his friend was implying that he had no experience with this kind of dog which means that he doesn’t really have this kind of dog at home. Now more than ever Frankie felt like he had to prove himself and prove that he and his younger brother had this kind of dog at home.   Frankie’s little brother shouted to Frankie that he should stop going near the big dog that’s chained to the post, that he doesn’t have to prove anything to anybody and that he’s always trying to prove that they have anything plus much more than anybody else says they have.Frankie shouted at his younger brother to shut up. He walked up to the dog and as soon as Frankie stretched out his hand to pat the dog, the dog took one big bite at his hand.   Frankie screamed in pain so loud that it could be heard for the next 6 neighboring blocks.Days later, Frankie was treated for rabies but the news of his stupidity had already spread among kids all through the neighboring blocks.   That was how Frankie earned his new nickname, “The Rabies Boy” which he hated so much but it stuck for years.   Now nobody has to tell Frankie twice that he shouldn’t boast he has something someone else just said they had.
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'…

Sunday Morning Blues - a poem by Alfred

The Sun rays slowly crawls through my window/
It kisses my closed eyelids with Gusto/
My eyes roll open like a hand of Ludo/
I stretch Good Morning like I'm practising Judo/
I Growl like a Lion on a half empty stomach/
I praise the God who gave me Life with No Buts/
The Sunday Morning air beats all Pizza Huts/
Fancy trying to put Happiness in a Box/
I Decrease the weight of my cereal box/
Church Bells ring, Christianity Walks/
It's a day we all remember our Christian Walk/
Even radios remember and play Gospel Songs/
I hear no fighting or quarreling behind closed doors/
Yelp, it's Sunday alright, even when it pours/
There's something about Sundays that always oozes joy/
A Day of Rest, A Day of worshipping God/
Sunday Morning Blues stretches beyond the church/
Rejoice in the Lord whether or not you go to church/
But don't forsake Spiritual Growth, you'll grow in Joy/
And the Sunday Morning Blues won't leave Monday Morn'/
