Dominion (Dustin McGilvray-Zachary, LA)

Driveless corpse in eternal day

Toiling toward that he cannot pay

The lover fixed in his every thought

Controlling him through each gram he bought

Perpetual let down and ceaseless betrayal

Stubborn cycle propel and prevail

Smart enough to see the way out

Yet addiction pulling harder and so reroute

To downward spiral and depression abound

All for affection and love never found

Lover turned jester in most sinister ways

Deathward addiction in crystallized haze

Numbing emotion greedily sought

Powderous rock of glittering bought

Debt to jester expedience accrue

Providing more the trickster doesn’t do

Implosion of self imminent and steadily building

Hardened heart of thorns jester is wielding

Tender heart explosion, love raining and fleeting

Empty space present no life, no feeling

Driveless corpse in eternal day

Toiling toward that he cannot pay

I’m Not a Nigger (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

You called me a “nigger” One word to rule me  Your word bullet of hate 
You’re life is a such hell  You think 6 letters  Justify your fake inferiority 
Just 6 letters  I got those and 20 more  Together
My mind is bulletproof I’m so far above you  I can call you scum in 6 different languages 
You can’t hide in white pride You are hate  You’re the nigger
