Heart Descry

by Joshua A. Parker

Do my eyes deceive?
Snowstorms conceived to cover seeds of kings
My people now covet from greed to need
Consumed are we
See the blocks we bleed
Long since freed?
Not from what my eyes perceive
Once still glyphics in stone described
Now pictures in motion define
From Earth Wind & Fire's truth in falsetto rhyme
To lost ghettos that buy millions for 50 cents time
To prescribe crime
Into who's child's mind
Would it be a blessing to be deaf?
Cause it is a curse to see
So full of power and royalty 
Yet lead unto to death by monopolies
Rub my dark face what will you catch?
Product of a heart destined to cry
