Divine Frankensteins

We know the recipe for that ancient alchemy
So, They ancient weaponry just can’t do chef to We
You know, We left all Them pleasantries
after We torch They confederacies
Oh yeah, We priest exceptionally
Cuz We be Them beasts, amongst Them sheeps ‘bout to feast
On the feet of the shepherd= shift from 3/5’s to 2/5’s,
Flatted fifths, Augmented sixths & O.G. myths
We be Them God’s kin= Children of Tutmoses= mountain men
Divine Frankenstein’s= mutiny ships
The talented 10th of the talented 10th
Always rebellin’ against Our planned obsolescence
Accept no commands from a man
Consider Us answers to questions illegal to plan
Or ask, walk in your dreams in a Kris Kringle mask
Cuz wasn’t We bread to surpass?

Runaway Slaves:

This is not my mouth
These are not my words
This is not my voice
This is not my earth
This not my skin, these are not my eyes
This is not my hand
I Am not A.I.
This is not my mouth
These are not my words
This is not my voice
This is not my earth
This is not my skin, these are not my eyes
This is not my hand
I Am not A.I.
