The Soul Train Zone

Won't be stopped here.

Or there. Despite your

Professional protests

And manifestations

Of indignant outrage.

This Soulful Train is too

Big for you, though you

Don't have awareness

Or the damn courage

To see. But some time,

In the dark, out on some

Cold, angry street, you'll

Discover that its roots,

Which are really yours,

Will have overtaken you.


The late Gavin Sutton, stellar journalist, Griot and Friend of NorthStarNews.com, passed away yesterday, January 5, 2015.
