#blacklivesmatter2conservatives

Confused people  
think whites  
are the pushers  
of #alllivesmatters
 
Simply  
NOT  
true
 
I learned about it
from Anthony Brian Logan
he’s black and smart
 
Six to one
white, self-professed racists
stand on the streets  
for the token-chant  
 
Black conservatives  
don’t feel the love
 
they feel like  
black Bratz dolls
or the newest
 
endangered  
species hoax
 
(DO save the tigers!)
But don’t treat
black people  
like they need saving  
 
in the country
they protect
 
...from your pale
limp wrists

Miss Representation

When she was seven
we played a game,
matching heads to bodies and legs,
a little girls face, strong arms
with anchor tattoos
footballers legs
and army boots.

And so she made the image match
stronger faster quicker,
hard to catch,
brighter braver better
than the best.
She became herself.

At seventeen they dropped the veil
of the beauty queen, eating only apples
to fall fast asleep.
When she woke I cried,
thinner weaker slower
something died inside.
Quiet dull compliant,
tethered to the tugboats pull.
She wanted the boys
to flock like gulls.

At twenty one she started to see
beyond the braille books
of how a female should look
in preparation for male approval,
an ill placed hand can break
the darkest of spells.

So now she stands ahead of the table,
pens take note when she speaks
a guide for the weak, all are equal.
The papers reported her success
with questions of tummy tucks
and real or fake breasts.
They missed the anchor tattoo.

The God Placebo

I'll be him, you want a sign?
it's fine I do it all the time,
the rich ones get cured
the sick ones ignored.

I just need the long number, a cross your card
dont worry were dot com and prayin is hard
You'll see me when you look up in church
or look me up, just do a search,
I can spit you a sermon, drop in some rhymes
dishing out morals with my breath of red wine.

I'll piss biblical rivers to fill every font
hand me your children I'm at the front.
I've registered my trade mark 'G'
to take 10%, hell more if you believe,
this position is hard, I lead and you follow
with a finger inside my dirty dog collar.
I do love a choir, boy I speak unto thee.
Christian be a christian
and bend over my knee.

For every false pill
there's only one cure
who doesn't ask people
to pay on the door.

Locker room rules (shut the fuckin door)

His genitals tucked out of view,
slowly his hand reached his hip,
they were all sure that they knew,
leaning in he puckered his lips.

Slowly his hand reached his hip,
they were all sure that they knew,
leaning in he puckered his lips,
the boys formed an orderly queue.

They were all sure that they knew,
leaning in he puckered his lips,
the boys formed an orderly queue,
he spun not feeling the kicks.

Leaning in he puckered his lips,
the boys formed an orderly queue,
he spun not feeling the kicks,
took turns to batter and bruise.

The boys formed an orderly queue,
he spun not feeling the kicks,
took turns to batter and bruise,
special needs didn't exist.

It's Time



Say it loud, say it proud
Let me hear a f*** yeah if you're black or you're brown

White America steady tryna take off your crowns
They stay shooting you down

Blood in the streets
Too many bodies to count

They try to dim your shine and brainwash young minds

But united we stand and scream for justice
                It's Time

Rise up and fight the power
Every minute, every hour

And we won't stop till we overthrow their corrupt towers
Take back what's ours

It was never theirs in the first place
They stole it from the first race to inhabit this land, we're the immigrants of these broken states

I may have a white face, but my heart is every color of skin found in this earth space
So dont you dare group me with those disgraces
Evil parasites that continue to live off of the Black race

Killing for profit
I know we can stop it
We're fighting till it changes or they nail the lid on that coffin

I can't breathe

Corona virus is everywhere
Which goverment lab
Created it why now
Where is the cure
Doctors need to work

Because people on

At crazy ass prices
And people are killing
Each other for this
End this now PLEASE!

Letter To Donald Trump

To Donald Trump:
You need to need to push the
Doctors/Scientists to find  
the cure for this frenzy
quickly because this  
lockdown is making
people go insane and crazy
To which I say insane in membrane  
Insane in ths brain
So please I ask you
To help us and pray  
That Newton 3rd Law won't happen
For every reaction there is an opposite an equal reaction
Meaning people are afraid and crime will happen

Lockdown

Crazy I am
Frenzy is getting to me
I want Freedom
But I understand
People need to be safe
But when will the cure
Be found
Which goverment is  
Responsible for the frenzy
Will everything be the same  
After the frenzy is over

Piece Of Wood

Sweet song, oboe, a piece of wood
hollow deep like braying hounds
made from a tree's elbow
dark stick of ebony
imprisoning my soul
on a scholarship's infinity
in the friar's forest
with dark reeds cut from willow
whispering to the spirits
I'd be with you if I could
sweet song, oboe, a piece of wood

Thirteen Carousels

In years of the moon, thirteen carousels
of my mythical fantasies when I was young
hearing ghosts but life is a beautiful thing
as I step through the mirror of my past
setting a pace for one like I
closing a chapter of my book
in years of the moon, thirteen carousels

Where's Alice

Injustice, fed by piecemeal for the
followers, desperate and hungry.
What have we become?
A collection of hypnoid mortals
 beyond reproach?
Ejected from our pattern, thrown
 into preformed geometric shapes?

 Laying ourselves down on sheets
 of mica, our books no longer used,  stacked high as a nightstand beside
 our multidimensional mattress.

We sink into our psilocybin dreams,  
the sleeper, who cheapens reality
by ripping dull  pages,  from glossy magazines, model lives leave no
excuse,  to pay attention.

Deceived and dazzled, we  build
 furrows with broken collarbone's,
a garden for mother earth.
Rabbits and hares run screaming,
for Alice to rescue those who have
 fallen deep,  into the rabbit hole.

Generations, their nescient behavior
ingrained,  has  produced scum
covered fish eyes, that cast
a downward glance at poverty

While Farceur,  incessantly pens
 for the elite,  scheduling rehearsals
for the next disaster,  drawing out the next pawn,  in their game of life

Amour Propre

Acrid filth initiates, harvest
Chalky bones provender, for
bastardized longevity.
Desperate music plays, from
the mouth, of a desiccated sun

Plastinated cadavers showcased
replicas of beauty, for the
quantified tourer
Sequencing marks in a
beaker of Corning
Drops of cum tally the eld

Gourmandizer of Amour propre
grasping juvenility sempiternal
Abnormal usance the naked
unprotected
Snakes, eels, Spanish fly
Sacrificial celebrations
Just a little more

The gentler gender for gentlemen . (For contest)

[font=Arial]      
          
I'm proud of belonging to the female race,        
To hail from the fair sex        
To be a part of womanhood , earthly sisterhood          
Not only because I have far less hairy        
Smoother, softer fairer pinker skin        
than the gents and men        
But also because it is only        
Our womb that cradles the unborn human        
That's why we are the cradle of civilisation and humanity.        
And our womanly lap that ensures the survival of the human race        
Our motherly lap is said to be a child's first university.        
I don't even mind being referred to as the weaker sex        
For I connote it to refer to how we are a delicate delicacy          
Upon which our men ravish and feast upon        
Wherein also lies part of our powers ironically.        
I mean I have read of kings who gave up thrones        
Just so they can feast their enamoured eyes upon and love a woman!        
         
The chauvinistic world of men has tried to sideline us        
Yet powerful women have risen and shone in all ages nevertheless.        
Thank you God for creating the mother of all humanity, our first mother, Eve.        
Long live womanhood, be proud of your gender.        
Let's change the male dominated masculine mindset of this world        
And make it more women friendly and feminine.        
Men are referred to as gentlemen in English,        
yet that can be paradoxically harsh in reality        
For more women are gentler ironically .        
       
A woman is flower power      
That can shake the world with her delicate petals      
As her softer voice has learnt    
to pierce, melt and mould his fierce metals      
of masculine armours of physical strength      
Without employing swords or guns.      
   
A woman is divine art admired by her admirers      
A vital divine creation that creates and nurtures      
because the Creator has entrusted her with that magnificent role.      
       
         
        ( comments are fine but I don't invite them for such contest entries)
