Kissass is the Part of Peace
America will have to Kissass Mother Earth
Whites have to Kissass Blacks, for Peace & Pleasure,
Only Pathway to Peace, Kissass.

    Well, the dude had also some other & fantastic stuff (Howl, Is About, Crossing Nation, and so on). The thing is -at least for me- that the here mentioned text condenses in an extremely virtuous way the feelings & mood from his age; that´s something to be thanked. I personally appreciate those words as a testimony of KKK-Martin Luther King Jr; unbelievable and savage but still topical subject.
    Anyway, is a bleak/ironic/lascivious text to celebrate.
