Leaves of rust dot an aggressive sky
The blacktop and yellow lines that divide us…are covered with dew
Such as a, cold sweat from a fever that will not break
Friends to the right teaching from a treacherous dream
Tired and worn neighbors to the left…correspond to the dead
Across the great dissect…acquaintances no longer fed
With watchful eye, I sit on a weathered deck pondering…’where has my neighborhood gone?’
A mortgaged life singing her swan song
Original sin and I…obeying the wrong
How is to be different…more than just an accolade?
A prototype to the wants in needs of those willing to place us on bended knee.
Who, black, female, yellow, brown or in differential love….
Who among us fall for the cross on the wall…
all awaiting the perfect sign…on the perfect stall.
Alabaster is the night that shines on Iron clad…ivory coasts.
The look of the lookers seeking some sight all from beaches that offer wings with no kite.
Poverty Pond, what a lonely drink of water.
Does your name tell a story?
Or, has the richness of a thrashed season…stole the glory.
Gaps in the gleam and the glare…illusions of seeming to care.
What would you know of fanfare?
Black as a demon from a stolen heart.
Ugliness sinking from your lost cause.
Where have the ripples revealed all the flaws?
The world has become a Walmart bathroom…where we are asked if the bathroom needs cleaning…just to hush us up! And, nobody does anything about it!
I saw the kiss by Michael Sam..
It made me mad–he kissed a man!
That’s something I don’t want to see
It’s wrong, unnatural, and it’s not just me.
Many now say, “Homosexuality is OK.”
But God says there’s a better way.
He made men for women, and women for men.
So why are “gays” so prideful then?
Please, no public same-sex kisses, Michael Sam.
We don’t want to see this man-on-man! […]
I do not mean to pick a fight
When I say most Blacks don’t think homosexuality’s a “civil right.”
Far from a “right,” Michael. In fact, it’s wrong.
Must I put this in a song?
Michael shot back: “Not wrong at all, it’s who I am!
“I’m gay. My name is Michael Sam.”
“God made me black and blessed me with gayness.”
Blessed you?! Then why are so many diseases linked to “sex” in the anus?
No, God made you black–not ‘gay,’” said I.
“You’ve chosen to believe a lie!”
You can’t change your skin color, that’s a fact.
But homosexuality? That’s only an act.
