Musology argues that we are here to inspire one another. We inspire in different ways: as hosts, servers, performers, protectors, intellectuals, and/or chameleons. Musology further contends that we can agree, globally, that to have an inspired spirit is vital to living a healthy, fulfilled, and sustained life. Let's tell President Obama to remain inspired and inspiring. Please sign this petition today to support the study and teaching of inspiration. You may learn more about Musology on Facebook in the online dissertation, Muses are Among Us. #Musology #MusesAmongUs #TEPC

Right the Wrong

Ever since that first indentured servant

Ever since that person was not counted

Ever since that person was counted as 3/5

Ever since that person was denied any rights

Ever since that person was enslaved

Ever since that person was neglected

Ever since that person was disrespected

Ever since that person was abused

Ever since that person was left in the cold

Ever since that person fell out from the heat

Ever since that person was degraded

Ever since that person was discriminated against

Ever since that person was pushed to the back

Ever since that person was left behind and kicked out

Ever since that person was threatened

Ever since that person was threatened some more

Ever since that person was profiled

Ever since that person was followed

Ever since that person was stopped and frisked

Ever since that person was thrown onto the ground

Ever since that person felt a knee against the neck

Ever since that person was innocent and found guilty

Ever since that person was guilty until proven innocent

Ever since that person was considered wrong for walking

Ever since that person was considered wrong for talking

Ever since that person was considered wrong for fighting back

Ever since that person was considered wrong for living

Ever since that person was strung up on an old, ancient tree

Ever since that person was shot down for nothing

Ever since that person was killed

That person has been wronged and it's time

It's time to make it right

by John D. Evans

A Microphone, a Bag of Oranges, and a Safety Pin

It was a long night

And my pants were saggin'

I was hungry and looked tired

The crowd and my insides

Started to nag me

They started to grumble and

Fight

Making a banging noise

My turn had come

My time to take the stage

And shine

I stood at the microphone

To face a mirage,

A bag of sweet, juicy oranges

And a big safety pin

by John D. Evans
