JULY 12 POWER GOES OUT AGAIN
LAWD HAVE MERCY IT BE HOT PT II
On the night of July 12, somewhere in N.E Washington DC, shortly pass 2am the power went out for the second time in 8 days. As I and others peacefully slept, bothering no one and quite contented the entire block on 16th street lost power.
I was not happy, In fact I think its safe to say that no one my street was in good spirits. This time there was no cold beer, in fact I had no cold anything everthing in my home quickly became hot. So, having to go work the next day I closed my eyes and tried to go back to swelter.........Oh Im sorry I meant to say sleep. Once again I tried to pretend that it wasnt that bad, but to be honest I wasnt fooling anybody it was hot.
So thier I lay fully understanding what the poor crab who has been placed in water to boiled for human consumption goes thru. Just my luck after 2 years of not loosing power I loose it twice it twice in 8 days. But fortunately for me and everyone else on 16th st the power only stayed off for about an hour. When I heard the radio click back on and the Air Conditioner cough then sputter back to life I knew thier was a god. I knew someone or something was looking out for a brother. Peace. Mark Bey
