    I do!
    The arranged marriage has taken it's most important step!
    Thank you W.E.B for your help,
    Booker T told me the both of you had the same energy.
    So, I refused to take sides, I only took knowledge.
    I kiss you under the moon light Queen Sheba, your lips are as soft as
    your hair.
    You must have used Charles Bailiff's shampoo head rest
    and sat in Madam C.J Walker's chair.
    For you I will risk my life, BLACK history.
    Protecting you as a huband secures his wife.
    Nat Turner style,
    Hannibal style,
    Desmond TuTu, listening to Miles Davis playing TuTu
    Jim Kelly 70's Kicks
    Paul Robeson's Pre-Hip-Hop Hits
    Elaine Brown hold my left hand as Assata embraces my right,
    Now, I fear no evil with Mama Tubman holding the shot gun
    in the middle of the night.
    This arranged marriage will never end in divorce.
    Lorraine Hansberry, share a cab with me, as we discuss Kwame Nkrumah's views on reality.
    Ahhh!
    That back rub was needed.
    Over 100 millions hands touched my skin but never touched this land.
    I will follow you Malcom but can we get more directions from Brother Matthew Henson.
    I know you don't drink, but Sister Bessie Smith "got the Blues"
    I will perform the libation and drink to the good news.
    You capture me, You intrigue me,
    just when I think I know you, you give me more to love.
    Thank You for helping me with self-hate, my Burning Spear guides me through the Crazy Bald Heads and places me in the land of the those who are great.
    Mama God, Daddy God keep my blackness among the God of All.
    This marriage will work.
