    Come on in
    and wait your turn

    Don't let the ongoing
    banter concern you

    Feel free to jump in
    at your own risk

    Your favorite barber
    holding court is being
    challenged by all comers

    This is the spot ~
    where lies come to die
    ain't nothing but the truth

    Photographs
    line the wall
    testifying

    hieroglyphics
    to our proud
    enlightened
    past

    Here,
    however…

    Black history
    is rewritten at
    the drop of a hat

    Like a man child
    in a promised land
    storytelling is who I am

    So enjoy
    the special camaraderie
    that exists between soldiers
