America’s Brainchild by El DAVÍD gives society a message of truth and a demand for change for the people, by the people.
ABOUT THE BOOK
“America’s Brainchild Poetry” – Spoken Word & Rhyme – DECROSE Publishing – April 12, 2003
America’s Brainchild is a collection of El David’s socially conscious poems and Spoken Word works that echo the cries of the streets and some of his own life’s experiences. It is a wake up call to America’s downtrodden and oppressed to stand up and fight for peace and justice.
“SON OF MAN
I am the effect of your cause
I am the tears of Mothers who lost their sons
To the bullets of beasts in blue
I am the anger of fathers…
Whose children have come home in body bags from wars fought for the egos of men
I dream for the dead…
Whose voices might otherwise be unheard and forgotten
I manifest those dreams through my works…” ~ excerpt of SON OF MAN by EL David

“As promised, after being published in three anthologies and two books of my own, I have decided to share a third collection of poems with the public for free; giving back to those who have supported me.
Poder y Ashe” ~ El DAVÍD
For The People is an embodiment of El’s passion, love and ideologies. “Winds of Change” is a perfect example of how El DAVÍD places a magnifying glass on the truths and calls out that, “Revolution is the only solution.” Speaking from his heart and soul, with a no holds barred attitude he, “Toast[s] to the Outlaws of Poetry” and sets things off like a “Time Bomb.”
