Poetry: Pay For What You Need

Listen Siblings, I come in peace,

“The Negro pays for what he wants and begs for what he needs.” — Kelly Miller

The following poem should be recited in every household.  It should make you wish to donate to the ABS and buy its literature.  It should make you want to build an African Blood Siblings Community Center and write for information.  It should make you think.  It should make you subcribe, share and love.  Subscribe, share and love.

Poetry: Pay For What You Need
By Onitaset Kumat

Pay for what you need in order to build
Through needs we escape being raped or killed
As needs elevate our greatly skilled
Whose needs when unmet go against what’s willed

Pay for what you need: “Freedom isn’t free”
Said Douglass then Walker sang hopefully
“Let a people loving freedom,” said she
“Come to growth” knowing “freedom isn’t free”

Pay for what you need for profit to net
As Douglass stated “men may not get
All they pay for in this world, but [or yet]
They must certainly pay for what they get”

Pay for what you need before Walker dies
He did.  How about before George James dies?
He did.  How about before Wilson dies?
He did.  How ’bout before we join those guys?

Pay for what you need no matter your pay
And when others don’t you stand up and say
“My sibling our children lose their way
When providers can not afford to stay”

Pay for what you need to support your own
For needs basis our African throne
And needs sponsored expand African grown
Needs making what’s reaped what’s African sown

Pay for what you need; for all else impedes
As this fault fruits the faults in our seeds
That “the Negro pays for what he wants” leads
Miller’s next phrase, “and begs for what he needs”
