I play chess, but my past is checkered,
The mic and I are like staff and shepherd.
Ka, “Peace Akhi,” Night’s Gambit, 2013. More Ka quotes.
Got something important to say? Then make it stand out by using the jumbo headline option and get your visitor’s attention right away.
Up against Goliath, to bring butter home.
I’m David on pavement, sling another stone.
We ain’t speak, clicking heat is our Morse code.
In time, you’ll see a thin line between friend and rival.
Between you and me: stupidity and men’s bravado.
A simple right or left can mean life or death,
Epic fail or nice success,
Days of pleasure or nights of stress.
I own the night…the heat’s my receipt.
Been tested, ain’t fail: I’m tried and true.
When it’s all falling apart, my pride’s the glue.
I felt at times worthless…
Pulled shifts with shifty crime merchants,
Stained hearts, brainwashed by mind serpents.
The fact I’m still here, it’s clear it’s divine purpose.
Took a vow to protect and serve,
All you do is disrespect and murder.
I ask that you not hurt my kids;
This is where you work…this is where I live.
You named them: hustlers, killers, fiends, ex-cons.
I called them: cousins, aunts, pops, moms.
To you? Hoodlums, crackheads, gunmens.
To me? Just neighbors, classmates, young friends.
