    As I was entering the flow
    Expecting to come to Destee’s Playground
    I was transported to another realm
    Parallel to this one yet different

    I looked and there was no Destee
    But there was Desiree
    and this was her Backyard
    I searched a little further
    Looking for familiar faces

    What I saw was an aggregation
    Of poets similar yet different
    From my family

    There was no Amun Ra
    But there was Osiris
    Spouting words of Wisdom

    No $$Rich$$ flying through the air
    But there was G$Money cruising
    The boulevard in his Turbo Saab

    I saw one who reminded my of Alyce
    But she told me her name was Alice
    The creator of vibes from Wonderland

    There was no Watcher
    But there was a Listener
    Who was an ear to those in need

    I thought I saw baller
    But instead it was someone
    Called
    *Bling* *Bling* flashing his
    gold and diamonds

    Da Street So’Ja in this world
    Was called The Revolutionary
    Liberating the world
    From itself

    I saw a blak man
    He called himself
    The Nubian Night
    Sporting a raised fist on his shirt

    Then there was Georgia Peach
    Who promised to bring a ray of
    Sunshine to my life

    Afri I thought I saw you there girl
    But then I realized it was
    Ashante Singer
    Man she could lullaby me anyday

    Cocobutterskyn girl I met your twin
    She calls herself Aloe Vera

    MaddRapper was replaced by
    The Happy MC
    And the GQ man himself
    Had a brother called
    Ebony

    I looked up in the Haiku Forum
    And I thought that was Joyce
    But it was Janet
    Spouting vibes from her new book
    Holy is a Sistah’s Luv

    Ubzorbshun was replaced
    By Release oooooweee did she release!!!

    Reason’s Twin was named Logic

    On the Mountain
    I saw Dunamis
    Brother of Dnommo
    Flowing from his lab
    About the goodness of the Savior

    An on the erotic side
    All Spice was an equal
    For our own Garlic Salt

    Hey Bruce I saw a guy
    By the name of
    Cardiac Arrest
    Man his flow will kill ya!!

    And then off in the Distance
    I saw a Lighthouse
    So you know I had to go there…

    What do you know my key worked
    I went in but I did not see a Black Panther Rug
    But I saw a bed in the form of a White Tiger
    No Champagne being chilled
    But a bottle of Merlot in the ice bucket

    No Jazz playing but instead it was
    Classic love ballads ringing thru the air
    And I turned around and behold I came face to face
    With he
    Who overlooks Love Sea
    In this reality
    He calls himself the Doctor
    For he heals the maladies of Love…..
    He is Love’s Physician

    Then just as I appeared I disappeared
    only to reemerge
    back in Destee’s Playground
    Be it ever so humble
    There’s no place like home.
