ANCESTOR QUEENMOTHER MOORE’S CLASSIC POEM

By Queen Mother Audley Moore

What’s the Hour of the Night?

After four score years of freedom
Our so-called leaders say
That the race has made great progress
And we face the dawn of day
But the day is not quite dawning
Millions of my people stand
Pleading at the bars of justice
For reparations and land
We’re not free in the country
And the truth is the light
So I turn and ask my watchman
What’s the Hour of the night?

We died fighting for democracy
I admit this to be true
Yet countless African men & women
Have no homes or work to do
If we wish to see the daylight
Or the rising of the sun
We need our self-determination
Our own affair to run
Since only reparations will
Put freedom in our sight
Let us turn and ask the watchman
What’s the hour of the night?

We fought with the mighty armies
When they battled with the Huns
Faced the fierce pangs of combat
Heard the roar of mighty guns
But no change came in our condition
When the smoke had cleared away
For the blood we shed in battle
Did not bring the dawn of day
All of our suffering and service
Left us in the same old plight
So I turn and ask my watchman
What’s the hour of the night?

The whites ate celebrating their freedom
A bicentennial whose praise they sing
But Africans are also jumping on board
Although we didn’t get a thing
We’re still struggling for integration
As though it was a glorious fight
So I’ve got to ask my watchman
What’s the hour of the night?

Music is an art or science
In which African men reign supreme
But the story of our progress
Is still a story or a dream
But we have great voices for singing
But we have no voice in court
Imagine being attacked my police dogs
Just to register and vote
With self-determination
We would have our perfect night
So we turn and ask out watchman
What’s the hour of the night?

African men boast of their religion
Though I wonder if they should
When you take an inventory
You’ll find them not so good
We build thousands of fine churches
With the dollars that we give
Yet masses of our people
Have no decent place to live
We say God is our rich father
Yet we’re always in a tight
Watchman strike a match and tell me
What’s the hour of the night?

Civil rights laws just for us
Is proof that we’re not free
How could we be fooled to think
We had a share in this democracy
When foreigners come here
They’re made citizens by choice
Citizenship was imposed upon us
We never had a voice
The passage of the 14th amendment
Took away the right
So you better ask your watchman
What’s the hour of the night?

Time is running put for us
A deadline we must meet
To file reparation petitions
And make politicians earn their seatsINTED
If we’re to win this battle
Every organization must join the fight
Then we’ll tell our watchman
What’s the hour of the night.

THURSDAY (purple), 6/22/2017=2=Tehudi/Sebek=Wisdom: Builders & Visionaries Needed

THURSDAY (purple), 6/22/2017=2=Tehudi/Sebek=Wisdom in combining Persons, Places and Things to make what is considered a whole entity within the Universe.
———————-
[edited] THURSDAY (purple), 6/23/2016=2=Tehudi=Wisdom. The Wisdom to take the knowledge we have to the next, logical place in our minds; that is to use it to maximize the Blessings in our Life Experience.
At the top of the Blessings is to have Successful, Wholesome, Rewarding, Satisfying, Enjoyable Life Experiences. That is to understand our knowledge about challenges and issues that happens in our destiny as Humans. Your degree of understanding the knowledge will give you the equivalent degree of Wisdom to practice the essence of what is within the knowledge (the teachings)
Our Ancestors in Ancient Kemit left us a clear legacy of how they lived, or would have lived their lives, had they command of the technological advances Humans have blazed in science since their legacies were being made – and vouchsafed. We can touch, see and feel the fact that they had a great command and vision of how to live successful, wholesome, Rewarding, Satisfying, Enjoyable Life Experiences.
The evidence we can see, touch and feel, etc., are the edifices that remain standing: From Omec Heads on Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean to the Pyramids and other profundities in present day Egypt.
While it is certainly the physical structures that agitate the minds of all Humans to know our Ancestors achieved remarkable feats, us who have made it our business to go deeper into their Spirituality and Philosophy understand very well, it was the Balancing of equally profound spiritual practices that made it all work to the umpteenth degree. They also vouchsafed their practices in physical structure as well as their spiritual practices.
The Ancestors were not perfect; and nor are we in this day and age. But they obviously had the vision and desire to live in a state of being as close to that of the Divine Order of the Creation as possible. Their vision is the state we call Maat.
A growing mass of Black people, in the United States of America, also have the vision and desire to live in a state of being as close to that of the Divine Order of the Creation as possible.
Ours is a State that we call Complete Freedom, Justice & Equality. While our Ancestor lost their own vision of Maat/Freedom, it is now found in us: Black people in North America (as far as I can see). Many of us are doing things that insure Black people will not lose our Freedom forever. Our Learned Ancestors left clear instructions for us to abide in about how to live within the state we call Freedom, Justice & Equality. Or, IMPORTANTLY, vouchsafe our visions of ways and means to successfully get the job done. THE SOLAR CYCLE JOURNEY
Moreover, our Ancestors vouchsafed their legacies to us in plain sight. It is in the simple facts about a trip that Humans repeat every year of our lives. That is we journey on the Earth as it goes around the Sun year after year after year. Furthermore, to survive the 4 (four seasons & etc.) during the Solar Cycle Journey, there are definite practices that we are compelled to engage or we will perish; depending on the severity of our faults regarding the requirements we may perish immediately.
However, the practices compel us to engage Persons, Places & Things. These practices result in varying degrees of mastery of the laws of our own constitution. Practices does indeed “Make perfect!” When we consciously observe Persons, Places & Things in our lives, we “Make perfect” more readily.
In other words we are compelled, according to our Learned, Credible Ancestors, to practice the delineated “Laws of Maat.” The delineation is taken from the Universal Melanin Law of our constitution. When we successfully practice The Law, our stay in our Earth Suits (Humans) life becomes more Successful, Wholesome, Rewarding, Satisfying and Enjoyable Life Experiences.
Our Recently departed Ancestors successfully studied and understood certain degrees or the legacies of our Ancient Ancestors. Many also had wholesome degrees of understanding about the Loathsome Journey known as The Liberation Struggle of African people. We are speaking about Dr. Amos N. Wilson, Dr. Frances C. Welsing, Prof. John H. Clarke, Brother Preston Wilcox, Dr. Imari A. Obadele, Atty Chokwe Lumumba, Brother Steve Cokeley, Dr. Khallid Muhammad, Queen Mother Moore, Brother Robert Harris, Sister Reda Faard Khalifah, Brother Mahmud Ramza, Mr. Simon Bly Jr., Dr. Tony Martin, Brother Lumumba Odinga, Brother Kwame Ture & etc.
The understanding gave them the Wisdom to conclude that Black people will NOT be Free until we control every bit of our own destiny. The Messenger made the same lesson so plain “Even a fool can understand it.” He said “Do For Self of suffer the consequences.”

KKVV means Khalifah Kujichagulia Village in Virginia. It is a vision of one of the nine in North America by Master Keidu Awadu. Khalifah Means Representative of The Creator; it means Self-Determination: KKVV is a place where you are bound to find individuals who are practicing Self-Determination. That is, doing for self.
The land is a 123 acre tract of some of the birth land of Nat Turner. In the past and present, some of the important things we have practiced from the advice of our Ancestors are: The fields are used to grow food and herbs, the woods are used to practice Rites of Passage into Black Manhood. And of course we produce and sell literature that is written by for or about Black people.
