A MYSTERY OF A MAN: THE POETRY OF NATURE
I have wrestled with an alligator
I done tussled with a whale
I done handcuffed lighting
Thrown thunder in jail
Only last week, I murdered a rock
Injured a stone, hospitalized a brick.
I’m so mean, I make medicine sick.
During the time of his birth, the world was at war. Some psychos ignited it, and they are covering for it up to date. It was not necessary’ still events in 1940’s have shaped our world today. I have been just watching as condolences are pouring around the globe, wondering what to say out of the maddening politics, race, religion and all athleticism: which took me some time to figure out’
What has struck me is the fact that Muslims and Christians particularly have buried their hypocritical hatred noses underground and together are celebrating, commemorating and contemplating this unique man’s life. Considering the hatred and religious tension between the said two’ the world is experiencing today, the legacy and impact of this man is worthy taking a note. As it is flagged, dripping with blood and the fists of history. History of mankind as whole, but that of a black man specifically. Ali has crossed race, creed, and ideological boundaries: a true humanist. An Islam not Islamist He was. Not to mention the fact that same reasons which triggered WWII are the one behind terrorism in Europe. In exchange for fascism we have globalization, followed by The US militarism camouflaging her real intent of destabilizing the non-western world so as to extract all resources. Then stage China as Adolf Hitler’s German taking her space now in the world stage, which then referred to ours as colonies among the subhuman or aliens, what the US did to a Red Indian and the western powers to the colonized world and especially the black men. Towards the non-white, the white policy has hardly changed! Vocabularies changes but meaning stay intact to the carbon end. Finally there were Jews, who remains the same, at the core of western politics ‘only more powerful in the present epoch. The most privileged, having achieved what Hitler failed to for German and Europe: The master race. Events of colonization caused WWI, extension of which was WWII, NOW IF MANKIND IS NOT CAREFUL, by being honest to attend and sort out mistakes of the past, won’t be long now the WWIII is right on the queue!
We must not misconstrue of Ali’s legacy. He stood for the black people first and foremost, along human justice. As a soldier he would have refused to invade Iraq, Iran and Libya.
“I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong,” Ali said. “No Viet Cong ever called me nigger.”
When you’re talking of one big black family: we have lost the Priesthood figure, the mediator of black affairs against bullying politics. That war is yet to be won. We have lost the guru, the philosopher: our Dalai Lama. The matter of religion intervenes here because it is the core of the global affairs. We constantly say Christian Europe, then the non-Christian oriental etc. The world is is in two religious spheres: monotheism and polytheism! Now Europe has gone Buddhism as it’s graph of Christianity is heading down. With Islam going up it means more terrorism and fanaticism! But on the opposite pole’ talking language and population economics which influences our equation of global affairs and decisions :
“Interest in Chinese language is growing around the world as developments in transport and communications make this planet seem a smaller place. Mandarin (standard Chinese) is the most used mother tongue on the planet with over 800 million native speakers…’ “
The two world languages with over a billion users are English and Mandarin. English is used by over 1.8 billion people worldwide and Mandarin is used by over 1.3 billion people, including people using them as a second language or business language.”
Every race must secure rightfully it’s place in the global economies, spiritual and cultural appreciation is mutual. There is enough for everyone; what are we fighting for? Why did black have to convert to Christianity and Islam? Why was his spirituality purged, leaving him feeling ashamed of his skin and identity? Now the same sin you did to a black man, shall eat you away and all your likes, it’s the order of the universe! The same guy who told you they are less human’ tells you now, your nothing short of them. You’re the same goyim’ the future is humanism; Mankind is done with this psychosis. As for Europe unless it it is self-honest with events of WWII, the lie shall consume her from within to the very end. Confession is the leverage, the only way out from the grip of the fraternity that uses it to rule her, once Europe decide to call a spade a spade, the demon will be exorcised! Man kind is one loving family, what and where did it all went wrong?
As for the black people there is nothing to be ashamed of, we belong to one wider community, the oldest human race family, the original seed’ our contribution to mankind is paramount, even though somewhere along the line we were moved and squeezed out from the center to the periphery , by our own kin and kith, relatives, neighbors and friends.
Now I can’t cease, every time when I think of Ali recalling the Ancient black land (Egypt) when The Pere died (The King/the Head of the House) how they prepared him or her to the afterlife, the embalmers rituals and mummification. Then the King will go and join the gods. I am sure in the Qamitic (Ancient Egypt) calendar, Ali’s 74 years signals a new dimension in this big black family that the universe reckons. Ali was the Son of the Gods down in our times
This little black boy
