    Ain't no title to this poem
    no titles to pigeon hole the content before you
    read it...cause the title may scare some
    before they learn they need it..

    current times, events, rhymes, last breaths spent
    impregnate this no title poem...this poem is transient
    this poem has no home...no parameters...no boundaries...
    no dotted lines to be signed to make it official...
    no yellow tape to hold out the public...no blueprint by the master
    for systematic constructs...this poem is amoebic... it takes the
    shape of the readers frames of references
    and speaks on the truth on racial differences like
    "what is white privilege?"
    and why is that everyone peeps it except white people?

    there ain't no title to this poem cause this poem
    refuses to be labled or stabled like House *******
    in the bedroom, boardroom, or stuck scrubing
    **** off the floor of the bathroom of the pentagon
    this poem likes to carry on, carry on
    the Kocktails that rocked the sixties well and blazed
    like hell 'til the economic structures tears began to swell

    this poem is not titled ******, porchmonkey, jungle bunny,
    spearchucker or "awwww...that muthaphuka", or NAACP or
    UNCF (Who is COLORED and Who is a NEGRO)...this poem
    aint' titled but it will
    keep it real...yes it can, yes it can can...

    this poem will provoke emotions and anger
    cause see this poem just don't give a @#%!

    this poem ain't titled because 9/11 was known before
    the buildings were blown / but those chickens were home
    when the call came in on the White house phone
    and if they want to act like they didn't know..then
    this poem acts as if it don't know itself so
    ain't no title to this poem...no name...no secret identity...
    no social security number...no sku embedded in
    it's skin... no bar code on it's life...no way to recognize it
    to be followed by big brother...this poem don't even have a
    concrete home...this poem is a spirit...this poem is a feeling...
    this poem is an agitator...this poem is an awakener...this
    poem...is a pro-black mechanism programmed to
    destroy fallacies of a stolen history...but this poem has no title...
