Spoken Word for Bernie Sanders 2020!

We Need a New President!

Yesterday, I ran for president, went up against the petulance of candidates whose one defense was to segregate and build a fence.


We Need to Save the Planet!

They disregard the common sense that global warming will dispense all of the creatures in silence, so they can keep their money.


We Need to Acknowledge Changing Tides!

I hoped they'd see the relevance of acting in benevolence, with overwhelming evidence that times are changing.

We Need Critical Thinkers!

So, instead of rearranging their words in deranging phrases, confusing minds like mazes, my goal is take the stages and make the changes that humanity desperately needs:

We Need True Democracy!

Eliminating the greeds of governments and easing the grip of stubbornness that suppressed the will of those distressed because of displacement and overwhelming states of poverty is how I run my candidacy for the next person of authority that will lead this nation into an era of prosperity and bring a sense of clarity as to why we are all here.


We Need a Message of Love!

Let me be clear that this poetry is for Bernie, a man who wants the world to see that his decree is nothing more that a message of love.


We Need a Revolution!

I've had enough of these sentences spewed by spin doctors in crude fashion. Let the passion of these lines fill your minds and hearts so that we may start to fix the problems that we created.

We Need to See the Truth!

I am exasperated by the ignorance of our "first world nation"--a society whose relation to others is cloaked in hidden agendas and umbrella corporations that lure the countries of the world with a promised carrot that dangles just out of reach.

We Need Liberty!

Before I complete this speech, let me preach about the coming wave and ripples that we have made as we stand together and fight for a truer understanding of liberty.

We Must Give People the Power!

I believe that we, the people, have the power to change the current hour of humankind.


We Must Think Outside of the Box!

Throughout the past, our eyes have been masked by the lies of those in charge, but now we charge forward toward a future that respects equanimity rather than the insanity of those whose fingers can push a button and end our planet.

We Must See Beyond the Pale!

Dammit, let us stop voting for puppets and noisy trumpets that don't actually say a thing as they mock and jeer, making unclear statements as a foundation of their driving force and filibustering.


We Must Recognize Our Connection!

When will you hear the ring and pick up the phone? For it is your soul on the other line asking you to find a deeper truth before time runs out.

We Must Build a Brighter Future

And once you find it, help lead the youth into a brighter tomorrow, one filled with less sorrow, where we can stop borrowing ideas that were never actually solutions, but rather agendas made through clever elocutions and sneaky institutions that turned our heads away from what really matters and directed our attention toward libel splattered across the pages of media bought by those same companies who created the problem we are diverted from.


We Must End Fossil Fuels

Let us work toward renewables instead of perpetuating the pollutions that are the foundation of an unstable table for our economy.

We Must End Consumerism

Sure, they brought us here, but where the powers that be want us to go is into a downward spiral
that knows no depth, for when breath is sold in a can, can people truly breathe?


We Must Create a Plan!

I see no plan and believe me I've looked for one that spans across the globe, one I hoped would reveal a real sustainable future.

We Must Educate Ourselves!

Alas, the masses who form mobs of ignorant slobs that look out only for themselves don't want to try it, as they consume a diet of genetically modified foods and programmed television that limits their vision of reality.

We Need a Paradigm Shift!

I apologize for such stress as I've digressed into a tirade of brutality, when really what we need is to understand the totality and impact of each and every choice, and each and every voice, so that when we finally break the shackles of ignorance we can rejoice in the knowing that we were there when the world changed from despair into delight.

We Need to Spread Love!

Over night this can happen. So, until then, I'll keep rappin' for my homey, Bernie Sanders, while the others pander for votes with their millions that could have been used to save the earth
or give birth to a new era of hope and love for all its civilians as we recognize our connection and upon greater reflection make the conscious decision to live in harmony.


We Need a Change!

Who will you vote for? For me my nominee is my main man, Bernie.


Your Voice Matters!

Vote! Represent! Your voice matters. True change will only arrive once the people stand up for what they believe in, what is right, and what is just.

      If Bernie is still around and decides to run for president in 2020 he stands a good chance. The Democrats will have realised they pulled the wrong rein in backing Hillary Clinton over Bernie, and unless Trump turns things around.. Bernie could be the man. Good work.
