Like both King and Lennon dreamed
But still had to face the gun
Out of Order by Kadeem 20

Martin Luther King Jr’s most famous speech was “I Have a Dream” while John Lennon’s hit song Imagine covered some of the same principles.

The irony is that they were both assassinated for being too peaceful.

So like Confucius or Gandhi in spiritual Nirvana
But Cobain got caught in the smell of his teen spirit
How's that for some karma?
Out of Order by Kadeem 20

In many Indian religions, nirvana refers to a state of liberation. Confucius inspired many of those ideologies even though he was BC.

Mohandas Gandhi was a true advocate for peace and nonviolence, who also was assassinated because of this, and raised Hindu.

Kurt Cobain was the frontman for a band that shared the same name, Nirvana. Though they had much success especially with songs like Smells LIke Teen Spirit, he shot himself in the head in 1994.

I used Karma, another Indian principle, to describe the irony in this. And a play on spirit where Cobain referred to emotion and I refer to a posthumous soul

Like the car knows the cheetah can't be defeated
So it cheated
Carbon monoxide trails to clog up it's breathing
Out of Order by Kadeem 20

Superbowl XLVI featured a commercial where a new Hyundai raced a Cheetah and won. I kept thinking how unrealistic and anthropocentric that is; more unjust.

I guess Robert Frost took the right path
But what about Plath?
Out of Order by Kadeem 20

This couple of lines links together the idea of The Road Not Taken, which tells of Frost’s dilemma at a fork in the road and choosing originality and Sylvia Plath, who was another poet that committed suicide.

So I write..for me
Write every letter from M-L-K to P-A-C
Out of Order by Kadeem 20

A continuation from the previous line where the word ‘right’ gets flipped into a different meaning.

It basically says that the inspiration in my writing comes from all over.
From the peace advocates to the radicals, they all excite me.

But I'd rather go...out with a fight Out of Order by Kadeem 20

Nothing comes easy. I’m saying that I would rather die differently than the two in last stanza. I’d rather die on my feet than to live on my knees.

Like Edgar Allan Poe. Or Vincent van Gogh Out of Order by Kadeem 20

This poem mentions a few of my favorite dead, inspirational people such as van Gogh & Poe.

One killed himself in an asylum while the other’s death is still a mystery to this day (however suicide is a suspicion), respectively.

And it also links to the previous line because Poe was baptized.

Cause Charles Darwin taught me even Christians could evolve Out of Order by Kadeem 20

Charles Darwin was the father of evolution,
He wrote the On the Origin of Species which discussed his ventures in the Galapagos Islands.

And even though today creationism is looked at as the opposite of religion, Darwin was actually a Christian.

Hence, we all evolve. Whether or not we (believe that we) come from the same place.

Like a caterpillar who wants to fly
But first must commit to a life of crawls
Out of Order by Kadeem 20

Just like anything else in life, if you want it, you have to be willing to accept the ups and downs.

Just ask Heimlich from A Bug’s Life
