    NO REGRETS

    I killed a black man today
    And I’m sitting here in this rat infested alley drinking gin
    I can’t help but remember the reflection of terror on his face
    The same look my mama had when she said you aint never gone be chit!
    Dude had a tattoo on his left arm that said Shay
    Sounds like a hooker he met in his hey day
    I saw a sun around a rose covered in blood around her name
    So it must be his daughters name

    Is this the dude I rolled dice with?
    I remember he cheated so I knocked his front teeth in with a pool stick
    Is this the mother f*cker I smoked my first blunt with?
    Naw cuz that cat blew smoke on my manhood when other brothers tested it
    Did I do time with him?
    Cuz he looks like the ***** that sold me a bible after our bench press bet

    This must be the mother f*cker that told me education was the key
    But on my way to college a white man in a red suit said ,“Ni**er you still ain’t free!
    Naw this the cat that raped me when I was five years old
    Playing with G.I. JOE’S crying and praying to God why me?
    Is this the mother f*cker that said be all you can be?
    So I joined the army
    Fighting for high priced hoes
    Pouring gasoline on projects while deliberation moved my soul to suburban condos
    From slangin dope to hangin hopes
    A bonfire for freedom papers
    Up with coke
    My freedom was a joke
    So I robbed the next ni**ga who was afraid of my trigga

    I follow a dark path where street lights fight the police
    Where black boys say F**K toys
    I’m killing the next ***** that disrespects me
    Where black girls turn tricks
    Cuz they mama’s drain souls with dope filled water hoses
    The same hoses that sprayed black folks when segregation was taught to mold
    Where ghetto’s turn boujou
    White causes that pause to toss debree to lost black souls
    Media controlled
    Shake ya *** cuz I’m told
    Give me drugs cuz this animosity needs to be covered with blindfolds

    This ***** that lay beside urinals
    Pot holes ,city life swallowed wino’s
    Crack heads got PHD’S with robbery goals
    And who a gives a F**K who dies I need my next blow

    This ***** I killed looks like my uncle
    And my daddy aint complaining cuz he’s a vegetable
    Veteran with no dividends
    No promised land but mental shackles
    And his medication sedates so he wont hear his master’s call

    This ***** I killed is the same brother I scratched my first record with
    The same ***** that robbed my mother for a designer outfit
    This the mother f*cker that told me black women aint chit!
    Beat her down to make ya ego bigger
    Pour tears on her figure
    FU** her confidence
    Destroy her soul with no future intentions to make her whole

    Spent years selling black secrets to white republicans
    This the ***** that shot me for a fresh pair of ones to fit in
    I’ll pour his ashes on the four corners of the world for my explanation
    Gang banging in slave chains made more bullet holes
    And I’m trying hard to look in this *****’s heart through my chamber
    But it stopped beating the minute he said ,
    “NIG*A F*** YOU”!

    I understand rich that's why I edited it as much as possible without taking the original content out of the poem.
    Indeed it is in raw form so if I offended some except my apologises but If all anyone saw was the curse words then the meaning of the poem has blinded many about the reality of brothers killing brothers.
    Enjoy your day rich and fyi I see it's ok for many to be sexually explicit yet profanity is offensive? Double standard but again your rules are your rules.
    Have a great day!:picture:

    Not so much double standard just a set rule we all must follow
    even me , going extreme or sexually yet none have broken lines
    to where they are harmful yet steamy , but the B / N and F words
    just not allowed sistah .

    Thank you for understanding

    Thank you,
    Understandable so the next time i see another poet do that I should see you there explaining to them the same rules,which many have done here.
    I just saw where you made a nice comment about a poets work who used the b and n and,s, and f word.
    Is there only so many b's n's,s or f's you can use?
    I am not trying to be difficult but I am seeking clarification.
    I have always stood up for what I believe is fair or just.
    I will not be posting anymore of my work here.
    My work is my work and I put my heart and soul in it each time.
    I am truly insulted as a poet/spoken words artist and songstress for not being able to express my self freely.
    what you do for one do for all,that is fair as a moderator!
    THANK YOU!
