    theatre
    reality
    images

    lights
    cameras
    action

    this is for the hollywood faction
    hollywood tipped her hat
    spat her seeds
    tap danced her way into being my number one nemesis
    when she
    became a black-faced mimesis
    and then sat in the director's chair
    made fun of buckwheat's hair
    and Aunt Jemima's stare
    she loved to see us spit watermelon seeds in the air
    instead of plant them in the ground of Aware
    and even now she doesn't care
    b/c only on UPN do we get television flare

    may the poets' ink set the spark on hollywood square...

    you will never hear "cut" or "that's a wrap"
    as hollywood burns with her megaphone in her lap
    and we cease accepting her honors for having a 'monster's ball' in our 'training day'
    and not let her
    glare, glamour and glitz of the red carpet blind us
    and the gleam of her global award define our natural,
    ancient glow which was our grand accolade...
    and now the memory must fade
    peace to 'ray'
    but even the Oscar must burn today....

    Can't let hollywood dictate to us what is deemed excellent fare and what is not. Let each one of us decide that own our own. Loading up the ammo on this poet.
