The Mother Ode - by Chairman Fred Jr.


  The Mother Ode’ 

You think I forgot?

Well, I think not! 

 From the Pyramids to the plantation

Through the sharecropping and segregation. 

To the Ole’ Earth from her seed Yes, indeed you carried me. 

In Africa I rode your back

On the plantation a potato sack. 

Whatever the case you held me tight. 

Kept me close those winter nights. (whisper)

Matriarchs and Mothers and Queens and Nannies. 

Big Mamas and Dear Mamas, Geronimos and grannies. 

Healers of sickness who addressed the business. 

Wasn’t no need for traveling, homemade healthcare! 

From common colds, to frequent flus to champion of childbearin’. 

Continuously connected through this cold hard system. 

When my cries were denied you were the only one listening.

 I didn’t play no dissin’ Mama when playing the dozens 

 For it wouldn’t be no me if she wouldn’t of gave Daddy no lovin’ 

Through the hard times and struggles, discomforts and pains. 

The cold nights, beans and rice, mayo jars with kool-aid. 

Yeah, I did my share of stupid stunts, fuck ups and cutting up in the class. 

You showed TOUGH LOVE and had no hang ups about tapping that ass. 

And with those high times we had in my mind remains. 

First days of school and surprise birthdays. 

They’ve been trying to divide us in hectic times throughout the history

From masta’ selling me off ‘till today with Baby ‘T’. 

You’ve produced pyramids, taught tribes and gave names to Nations. 

You are not only my mother but the Mother of Civilization. 

Those are your children in Kenya and the descendants in Dominica. 

You’ve breastfed me in Botswana. 

And kept me clothed in Ghana. 

Whenever they beat me down, you told me “Son stand up!” 

You said all men fall down but great Men get up.

When they came and framed me, and placed me behind these walls. 

You knew the business, prison visits and collect phone calls. 

From the womb to the tomb, from the belly to the grave. 

Through four inch glass, prison blues and shackles and chains. 

 I love you dearly, miss you really. 

And that ain’t never gon’ change.

The Massacre on Monroe left in its aftermath, the assassination of twenty-one-year-old Chairman Fred Hampton and twenty-two-year-old Defense Captain Mark Clark. As it was in life, it remains in legacy; the attack on the struggle for self-determination was deemed the number one threat to the internal security of the country by former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

Survivors of the 1969, Monroe Massacre will be convened.

How was the Black Panther Party the number one threat to the internal security of the country? By providing the first nationwide Free Breakfast programs. By providing Free Medical Clinics. Or, by providing information to better communities of poor people nationwide?

At 4:00 PM on Saturday December 4, 2021, the Cook County Board President, and other Commissioners will deliver a proclamation in honor of Chairman Fred Hampton at the Chairman Fred Hampton Aquatic Center: 300 Oak St, Maywood, IL 60153.

“Strange Shootings & Mysterious Murders.”

“The only thing more stranger than the shootings in Chicago/CHIRAQ! And the mysterious mass murders in Orlando Florida. Is the amount of people who don’t see or think that anything is ‘ Stately Strange’ or ‘Machinely Mysterious’ about them.”-Chairman Fred Jr..
