Bring Da Noise!

Egypt is now Public Enemy number one, bringing the noise of freedom, letting the world know what time it is…for revolution…making dictators shake in their shoes, time is theirs to lose now that the thirty year “emergency” is up for real now…that egg can sit on the track till the train comes back…how low can you go?  do you really want to know?

Chuck D and Flavor Flav, cultural warriors, were saluting Mohamed Bouaziz (Tunisan revolutionary) and Khaled Said (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/06/world/middleeast/06face.html?ref=middleeast) since 1982, waiting for Egypt and the rest of the world to stop believing the hype to catch up in time and go back to their rhymes….

We are traveling where the only passport we need is our mortality, those of us stateside who see the commentary chasing their tales like a kitten who just can’t be free…

“our freedom of speech is speech or death, we got to fight the powers that be…

We got to pump the stuff to make us tough

From the heart

It’s a start, a work of art

To revolutionize make a change, nothin’s strange

What we need is awareness, we can’t get careless”

(Public Enemy, “Fight the Power!”)

The people of Egypt “pump the lyrical, make a miracle” (Public Enemy) while we pay to get played, and Harriet Tubman is singing in her grave, “tell old Pharoah, Let my people go…”  as low as she can go.

My 7-year-old daughter said to me tonight, “If God was peaceful, he would make us magical.  He would let us heal ourselves.”

“Is there clockin? Is there rockin?” (PublicEnemy)

From NYTimes article,  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/06/weekinreview/06held.html?ref=middleeast:

“Where am I? What is happening to me? Answer me. Answer me.”

“Where are we?” The interrogator answered, “You are nowhere.”


Mubarak, et al, being unable to shred their current Constitution as surely as our own U.S. leaders have long ago burned ours in front of a public with no noses, hangs on the slender thread that says they have to wait…just like our CEOs said they could take the bailouts, but they couldn’t give up a dime, because that would break their contracts (cracking on their heads that don’t have a heart)…

“Turn it up! Bring the noise! Hear the drummer  get wicked!” (Public Enemy)

The people of Egypt are an incredible “rhyme animal” whose “soul on a roll” is  a def jam to a no-longer-as-deaf world…to people anywhere who live like mud puppies, who have lungs that seem redundant…don’t know why they are there because they’ve never used them, until, at last, they emerge onto land and take their first breath…

Tar baby was left in the dust by these revolutionaries, they bring the power, and they aren’t giving it up to anyone…they write their own memos, this ain’t no demo, it’s a demonstration giving all the world leaders earned remonstration….
