    BLACKMAN ON THE MOON:
    Moon-walking on 1600 Penn Ave
    By Andre Austin

    1969 Man on the Moon, Cronkite Proclaims
    2009 Blackman takes over DC
    However, White racist Claims,
    A planet of the Apes shall Be

    Is this Evidence
    Is this Evidence
    That Racism has vanished,
    Sky Rocketing Foreclosures $ unemployment
    With Hookers jumping over the Fence
    And Straight Men walking with a Bent

    Bent down because they have no Jobs
    While Bankers morph into pigs and Slobs
    Feasting off an Oval USDA’s Black Angus
    While the General public,
    Have to take kicks up the anus
    Shots up the ***
    While the memory of work pass

    Plant a black flag in the Rose Garden,
    For everyone to see
    Plant a flag on the moon’ s surface
    On the Moon I can see a face (smiling)
    On the Executive’s surface glance at a black face (grins) with Stress
    Trying to keep the Honey Moon, and get blue cheese
    For all the people looking for progress

    America We have landed on the Moon
    BUT
    America We have a problem:
    We are on the Moon but We can’t find the lost cheese

    You have an interesting view of matters and how you express them!

    I like the motif.

    Good social commentary/political poetry here.
