    DIS POETRY AIN"T NO LUXURY

    Me bawl like me belly
    When it ain't been fed
    Me feel de poundin an' de crushin
    Of 90 hammer pon mi head
    When i bear witness
    2 dem lickle rich pituquitos*
    Slummin in my hood
    Cuz in detroit, hell dey gots it too good
    Bummin 'round 2 "find demselves", dey say
    When if me an' mine
    Failed 2 find wi selves
    Des de el tiempo que heramos guaguitos*
    We all woulda died
    Without ever feelin de sheer joy of makin Love
    Or de taste of sweet victory
    Drinkin de oppressor's blood
    Neva woulda had no luscious laughs
    At de man's expense
    Livin like we meant 2 Live
    With no pretense

    Dis poetry...it ain't no luxury
    i Share dis with U
    With de urgency
    De todos los antepasados*
    Who could neva let no pale-faced baldheads
    Deprive Us of Our history
    Neva let no onward christian soldiers
    With their onward christian penises
    Rape Our grandmaddas an' Our dawtahs
    Deprivin Us of Our humanity
    As dey deprive demselves of dey own
    Dis poetry is de difference....
    Between an explosion of pain rage terror hunger bitterness
    Swallowed up an' finally combustin
    An' de bombs rippin apart de cargo trains
    Built 2B transportin live bodies 2 de death kkkamps
    No, baby....
    :drink:
    Dis poetry ain't no luxury
    Dis ain't de masturbatory doodlings
    of de espresso bar gentri******s
    It's de seeds fallen between de cracks
    Growin strong an' bustin up
    De concrete death dat likes 2 play God
    But soon shall B comin 2 pass
    Like all things else
    In dis oh-sweet Life
    It's de colours
    De sweetness
    De Love
    An' de Spirit
    Created an' nurtured deep within
    Even when U locked de **** down
    in cold concrete an' steel
    It's de FIYAH
    No one can ever take away
    Bunnin everyting an' still B blazin
    No matter how much overtime
    Dey forcin U 2 work
    2 keep your **** job
    Shovellin ****
    4 $6.80 an hour
    Amor querida....*
    Dis poetry ain't no luxury
    Cuz dis baby don't care 4 clothes
    Dis baby don't even care 4 shows
    Dis baby just cares about Livin
    An' Bein
    An' stayin free
    an' Knowin my true Responsibility. :drink: :drink:

    *Pituquitos = spoiled little rich kids
    *Guaguitas = infants
    *De todos los antepasados = Of all de ancestors
    *Amor querida = My precious Love
