this pain u caused
is such a lonely distraction
thought i'd fall asleep
and out of love
but neither one seems to happen

i've taken inventory of my emotions
and cleared room for other things
now my chest
has nothing left
that broken heart wasn't worth salvaging

we were 4 years deep
into forever
with the potential of making it five
but with 1 call
you threw away it all
i guess my cell phone lied

i saved your name as "can't do wrong"
your number was 1-4-3
you gave me chills
and puppy love thrills
mixed with grown folks tendencies

i gave you effort
and genuine progress
even covered you in my prayers
when you were faithless

i sold you dreams
with real estate
opened up my life
and said
make yourself at home

my heart was a size 10 1/2
a tailor made fit for you
and no matter how big
the next man swears his pocket is
he'll never be able to fit
in my shoes

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
