    Sidewalk College

    Wisdom too wise
    To be contained in books
    An intellect shunned by universities
    Now
    Forced to learn by those
    Who are studied for a thesis
    Pontificating
    With those who don’t know
    What pontification is
    Discussing bondage
    And slavery
    With disillusioned free men and women
    Yes
    I went to school
    On your back porch
    The sidewalk in front of your house
    Where I used to work
    In the hair salon
    Of the corner store carry-out
    Waiting
    For my burger and fries
    Yes
    I went to school
    An while you
    Politic about crime
    I perpetrate it
    While you pay tuition
    To go to school
    I pay dues
    And give your books new information
    I am what you spend years
    Trying to understand
    So yes
    I went to school ​

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!



    LadyBelle,

    You are killing me softly, I must break from you, momentarily. The education of this world is foolishness to God, and you know this:

    Wisdom too wise
    To be contained in books​


    I am what you spend years
    Trying to understand​


    Forced to learn by those
    Who are studied for a thesis​
