    Gifted tongues full of magical speech
    Utterances of self-proclaimed axioms
    denotes what he or she or they mean
    via a poetical sagacity

    Sort of like a…

    life incarnate—oh yeah!

    Spittin’ vernacular lines just to feel whole

    But do I gots soul?

    Livin’, breathin’, gaspin’ for the oxygenic
    verve that reinvigorates platinum prose; had
    me stumbling on stage left—fumbling

    and introducing my smooth groove

    as simply…ME and poetry

    Stepped to the microphone with a purpose
    Only to hear the drone of words parlaying
    in the back of my dome yelling…

    ***** YOU AIN’T GOTS NO POETICAL
    SOUL!!!!!!


    Umm…I say I stepped to the mic uptight
    but still feelin’ alright but nuttin’ came out,
    it was lame when I tried to spit dialogue
    deep in the bowels of ya’lls cranium

    Remembering the time when being well-read
    was just a joke to dopeheads

    and the

    casket slammed shut bringing nightfall to my
    eyes that once were alive

    ****!!! Oops upside my head one mo gin’
    I told myself to vibe before I got to seein’ red!
    ****!!! Look what ya done done poet
    Ya vernacular is cold dead!

    Buried six feet deep albeit a tiresome sleep
    Since I felt all I wanna do is slam some
    funky poetry game—forget the cost of
    a versed writer’s fame—this IV stuck
    soul ain’t showing no shame

    Revived just in time to devise my life’s rhyme

    F
    L
    A
    T
    L
    I
    N
    E

    and chalklines
    out of time to claim my strong mind

    Rose up from the stage with the mic in
    hand—big time in demand

    Laying it down—fresh, new, and bold

    Audience snapping, crying, agreeing

    Yeah Poet – You Gots Soul!!!!
