    Been gone a minute
    incognito
    wore the mask to blend in
    soul still blak
    still hanging bush posters on the block
    to show who the real gangster is
    to show the leader of real criminal biz

    wiping the blood of dead children off
    ghetto street concrete
    still shedding trears for those gone
    to ensure my spirit is complete
    still spitting that prophetic ****
    like that man standing on top of
    the Statue of Liberty tip

    still walking around with my blak fist in the air
    cause a brother is thorough and I just don't
    care
    still squeezing the fat cats jackets until
    all the oil wrings out
    screaming like T.I.
    so "Bring 'em out, Bring 'em Out"
    still political as hell when I write
    but can break down that Love thing
    for moods at midnight

    can drop a haiku or free verse when I need
    maybe a cinquain or sestina indeed
    still grabbing mics when the stage is open
    standing tall and representing for all the
    strong brothers/no time to be a token

    still vandalizing deaf minds with sound
    with a boom bap or soul clap when it's time to get down
    still giving the hot foot to the new jim crow
    and most definitely to the new negros
    got 'em jumping around and doing the harlem shake
    the truth of words will make a fool shake

    Still combining nouns and verbs into a whole
    new language / verbal diction decisions have sentences
    gang banging / trying to annex paragraphs like the U.S.
    is doing Iraq /

    still keeping things righteous because I am that
    man blak.
