Learn and Teach

“It is not enough for the children of Ethiopia to be recipients of education. They should never forget that the responsibility for passing on this knowledge to others and of handing it over to the next generation rests on them.”
(Selected Speeches p.8 )
“Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”
(Deuteronomy 11, 18-19)
Don#’t be wise
with yourself only
share the light
if you have something
to do it right
for your brethren
how much might
received in schooling
now should write
return the service
teach your eye
reciprocate it
with another guy
kingdom in shaping
especially the child
youths need aiding
heritage to refine
a quality of races.

Education is the Key

“The key for the betterment and completeness of modern living is education.”
(Selected Speeches p. 34)
“Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”
(Luke 11, 52)
Look a key
how much precise
ingenuity
technically fits
the hole
and gears rotate,
measure the lock
solve the problem
to open the port
expand the frontier
of my liberty place,
or keep it closed
and safe
science of mind
gives force
to my hand of right
harness
the space,
and patronize
width and length
I owe
I shall enter
the room
a globe
of complete size,
while fool
is still knocking
in vain
cannot born
again
on the other side.

Haffi Dreadful to Be Rasta

Teferi
means Terrible
thereafter
haffi Dreadful
faster
to be Rasta
it’s a pilaster
weak heart
shall not prosper
heathen nah like
His Name
as a monster
for slave master
We don’t fear
human figure
gangster
reflect the terror
for the Pastor
in dem minds
smell of disaster
black star.

He Lives in the Shadow

Ancient of Days
covered under
the wings of age
like prophet Enoch,
the first scribe
ethiopian to write
de-scribe pre-scribe
kept in a secret
pavillion,
where no eyes
discretion
earthly garden
of delight
keeper of an art
which is fine
and major,
indeed He rules
still now
the high
and the low
the fast
and the slow
even the abyss
He santified
below
in session,
Jah RastafarI
disapparition
again beyond
the veil
of holy shadow
as it was
in the beginning
He’s hidden
eva since
right now,
who shall dwell
a concealed
Zion manor ?
A scriptural
question
can’t answer wise
who knows
Jah Maryon ?
Who may go
behind
to search
His mind ?
Finding none
in the church
of Estifànos,
really
the King liveth
in the most occult
place or everywhere
unknown
to come
when camera is blind
quiet the soprano,
Melchisedek
brings diamonds
you get
the outcome
of your virtues
and vice
as He knock
the door
Judah Lion.
