    I was a lyrical dame
    Positioned on the poetic corner
    Revealing my nouns, verbs and adjectives
    Slanging, metaphors, similes and prepositions
    Using protection to keep from catching cliches'
    Lecturing affairs of state on my political views
    From periodicals, radio to revolting news
    Speaking for justice and shouting for peace
    Keeping hope alive for equality
    Free styling for the hustlers
    Making extra bucks to read a romantic prose for the couples
    Stimulating mentals performing eroticism
    Hanging my head in shame,
    Pleasing those too that wanted it raunchy
    I was doing what I had to do for clothes, shelter and food

    I’d take the stage on rainy days
    Doing open mics
    Dipping, ducking and hiding from biters
    Because I couldn’t afford to get my words copy written
    Seeking, spamming, and scanning the crowd for my pimp
    I was walking and talking spit
    Smooth words oozed off my lips
    Trying not to contradict
    Being careful not to let the wrong words slip
    Couldn’t stand the thought of more backhand slaps
    Uttering articulate sounds of unordinary speech
    Pleased crowds rewarded me with standing ovations
    My tongue danced rhymes and released them in a trendy sequence
    Up-tempo flows for hip-hop fans
    Silky smooth assonance for admirers of jazz
    Getting paid big head twenties and hundreds
    Never to get a chance to pocket my money
    My poetic pimp would be standing there for his dip
    I wasn’t satisfied with my ten percent
    I realized that there was more to be had
    Taking my pad I endeavored to flow
    I began to grind out a pattern of brilliant rhymes
    The words exploded from my mind with a flourish
    And I came to be me,
    The poet
    No longer pimped to the highest bidder
    Conviction reigns eternal,
    And I speak!
