Amir Sulaiman - "Danger"


"I am not dangerous, I am danger,
I am not angry, I am anger...
I am David, with a slingshot and a rock, and if David lived today,
He'd have a molitov cocktail and a glock,
So down with Goliath, I say down with Goaliath..."

    I am not angry I am anger
    I am not dangerous I am danger
    I am abominable stress, illiotic relentless.
    I’m a breath of vengeance. I’m a death sentence.
    I’m forsaken repentance to the beast in his hench men.
    Armed forces and police men that survived of oils and prisons until their cup runith over with lost souls.
    That wear over sized caps like blind folds,
    shiny necklaces like lasso’s
    dragging them into black holes.
    And I may have to holla at Fidel Castro
    to get my other brothers outta Guantanamo.

    And the innocents on death row
    is probably in the same proportion as the criminals in black robes that
    smack gavels that
    smash homes that
    smack gavels that
    crack domes

    Justice is somewhere between reading sad poems
    and 40 ounces of gasoline crashing through windows
    Justice is between plans and action
    between writing letters to Congressmen and clapping the captain
    between raising legal defense funds
    and putting a gun on the bailiff and taking the judge captive
    it is between prayer and fasting
    between burning and blasting
    Freedom is between the mind and the soul
    it is between the lock and the load
    between the zeal of the young and the patience of the old
    Freedom is between the finger and the trigger
    it is between the page and the pen
    between the grenade and the pin
    between righteous anger and keeping one in the chamber
    So what can they do with a cat with a heart like Turner,
    a mind like Douglas, a mouth like Malcolm, and a voice like Chris?

    And that is why I am not dangerous I am danger
    I am not angry I am anger
    I am abominable stress, illiotic relentless
    I’m a breath of vengeance. I’m a death sentence.
    I’m forsaken repentance to the beast in his hench men.
    Armed forces and police men
    I will slice his belly open and
    free
    the souls of the Navajo
    the souls of the Iroquois
    the souls of the Ibo
    the souls of the Scottsboro boys
    the souls of great Black leaders
    the souls of Kandahar and Baghdad
    I burn my white and raise my black flag
    to free the souls of the great black leaders
    the souls in Attica
    the piece of solace on the prison floor

    Until then I am not dangerous I am danger
    I am not angry I am anger
    I am abominable stress, illiotic relentless
    I’m a breath of vengeance. I’m a death sentence.
    I’m forsaken repentance to the beast in his hench men
    Politicians and big business men


    I’m a teenage Palestinian opening fire at an Israeli check point,
    point blank
    checkmate
    now what!

    I am an inmate short shanked to the c-o
    Earlobe to earlobe
    Cut short
    Case closed
    Now what

    I am Sitting Bull with Coronal Custard’s scalp in my hands.
    I am Senkay with a slave trader’s blood in my hands.
    I am Jonathan Jackson handing a gun to my man.
    I am David with a sling shot and a rock.
    And if David lived today it would be a Molotov cocktail and a glock.
    So I say down with Goliath
    I say down with Goliath.

    But we must learn, know, write, read,
    We must kick, bite, yell, scream
    We must pray, fast, live, dream,
    Fight, kill, and die free.

  4. i dont agree with all of the violence in this it is sick and demented, but the poetry and indignation and injustice and channeling it into something positive like writing music, i do not like politics but i think everyone should be able to express themselves positively thru creative means...the violence is horrific.

    1. the whole point he's makin is how state violence is in no way righteous, and when there's injustice,the people have the right, nay the duty to use violence to un do it. me thinks... why are you not "horrified" by the limitless violence he talks about from the state's side towards all the people he mentions?
