BLACK SOULS LOST (5-27-07, Victory Park, Smyrna, TN, by Carl A. Patton)



Beloved the world is on a mission to take over the hearts and minds of all that stoop

to low for the floor. There is frogís bottom and often as my brother said as low as you can go. Hip-Hop ainít hip if you need a switch to turn young and old inside out. The foolish settled on style and a world gone mad. The righteous although abused but not used relied on God and Christ. They saw a brighter day then, now, before and later. (24 July 2009)


There was once a time not

long ago that many souls

began to wander.


There was a time when many

of these people hid in the woods and

behind streetlights.


But now they wandered to no

visible end. Yes, there was once

a Black son.


Something called Crack to his name.

Where did they go?Lord just

where do they do?


Meanwhile Satan is in vogue as

many embraced his hand.

Another soul was stolen.


The scorekeeper had not lost

count but the uncounted remained

firm as the oak.


Souls meanwhile littered the interment

camps and stockades appeared to

accommodate many of the wretched of

the earth, which reached out to Black and White.


The sick bays, hospitals and treatment

centers also were strewn with the

waste of foul Crack Pipes gone wild.


We saw many at places where people had

lost contact with their names and many

grumbled of things incoherent but sad.


The ravages of this vicious goatherd

destroyed many homes as parents, mother

and father vowed to help them but to never

help those that cried for help but looked

the other way.


Where had the son gone, the sister, brother

daughter are mother and father?


Life meanwhile went on as the righteous

had a mission toward the souls of the lost.


I frowned as I saw that son fade

in a smokeless fire but even sadder

are days for lost Black souls.
