    *sigh*...i almost got lynched the last time i posted this...sooo, let's try again here @ Destee :)

    Shameless hussies
    …**** ain’t what it usta be…
    …**** ain’t what it usta be…
    women broken down into dime pieces
    …slivers of sexuality devoid of their
    cervixes’ full scream …

    if it were possible to make poems fly
    (in the same vein of writing god’s sigh)
    I would sign my name to a scripture & tell
    Assata its okay to come home
    …its okay to come home…

    if it were possible to make stanzas deadly
    (in a similar way rhymes in hiphop kill children steadily)
    I would happily conceive daughters & teach them
    Iambic deathgrips to those who grab their
    Jeweled ****s & diamond tipped dreads with
    No understanding
    …that a country exists in a womb.

    Now
    …we don’t need to ride a woman’s rainbow that
    ends at the point of her startling orgasm to know
    …women shake this world’s soul loose…

    Now
    …some might construe this blackpoembluerevolution…
    as my attempt to make ‘em wet & soft for my
    own design…
    I suppose
    …I find it humbling to know…
    my manhood can never be
    until I find a woman to serve…
    (whatcha mean, mensah?? Women serve us)
    trust
    …that we are their servants & protectors…
    this pleases me.

    Shameless hussies
    …give’n dap to whoever they ******* please…
    …inviting men into them whenever they ******* please…
    revolution in its essence.

    My woman ain’t got to be submissive
    …pin me down in bed just as hard as I
    do you.
    …yeah, I said my woman ain’t got to be submissive…
    talk slick, pop **** & ask me to hold you in the same phrase.

    Now
    …we don’t need to count every 10 minutes to know
    a women is
    (as we convene here)
    getting her blood smeared by a man…in front of her daughter…

    and we don’t need to line for women in a row
    (to really get to know)
    that one of them has been sexually abused/
    or will be.

    Heh…and we **** sure ain’t got to
    Open a vagina’s monologue
    (cuz we men never want to hear its song…unless its being
    beat up, licked out, get’n hit from the back in all angles)
    to wrangle in the myth that women
    comprise the weaker sex.

    Shameless hussies
    …slappin’ men who step out of line…
    …throwing men’s clothes out the window when
    one two many strange women call for him….

    Blacktalk, liberationspeech, afrikalove aside…
    Cuz, ****…
    You ain’t got enuf poems in your journalography to tell me
    …women ain’t the most subjugated
    on this planet.

    Diatribal incantations about my ancestral wetdreams aside
    Cuz, ****…
    You ain’t got enuf semen on your right hand to justify
    Striking her down & thinking she’s gonna
    Sniffle to the kitchen & fry up some ho’ cakes for you
    …****…
    a shameless hussy will mosey to the kitchen
    and come back swingin’ diaspora lowblows ‘til
    the clock strikes high noon & your erection’s been
    sucker-punched and you go fetalposition on her.

    That’s the woman I want.

    Shameless hussies
    …sitting in elizabeth clubs loving their men from afar…
    …smile when they’re wet & we nod to the smell…

    get wit’ that **** right there, little boy…

    ?
