    Red lights blare
    And stop signs pause
    I keep up traffic
    and make all the laws

    My wardrobe is tremendous
    With temper-tantrum hues
    I crave self-indulgence & lust for attention
    Baby just look at my shoes

    Smooth like hot cognac
    Slick like cold silk
    I have the aroma and persona of street success
    Look at the network I’ve built

    I’m peddling a poison of sin & secrecy
    I sell dreams to the hopeless
    Even trade responsibility & focus
    For a quick profit called intimacy

    Talk is cheap…so I don’t speak
    I use actions to voice my commands
    I run a tight ship of hips & glossy lips
    With an encouraging, swift back hand

    I’m the ugly side of sexy
    Frail bodies, fish net and stilettos
    I’m a marketing genius that attracts some of the cleanest
    white collars to the dirty, seductive ghettos

    Kisses are forbidden
    In this brief intermission
    loves takes longer to climax
    so emotions are chilled
    in this cold, distant thrill
    just let go and don’t look back

    Judge me as shallow
    Label me cruel
    But we’re all guilty of sinning
    I’m the 1st to admit
    That I’ve been good at this
    Since pimpin...been pimpin...been pimpin

    Explanation

    Peace everyone,

    by no means am I glorifying pimping. This poem was my attempt at expanding my subject matter. A friend challenged me to write about something totally foreign to me, something I'd never written about before and the subject she posed just happened to be pimps. Hence the title "The Challenge" and the poem you see before you.

    if anyone else would like to engage in challenging their pen, I invite you to hit me up at [email protected]

    blessings,

    NittyGritt

    Very nice work. I wasn't quite sure at first
    what the piece was about. I could not put
    the title with the contents, but then I figured
    it out.

    Much Luv
