    W.O.D. Woman of Destee
    What else can I do
    Why didn’t anybody tell me
    The truth
    You are colored and colorful
    I just want to be real with you


    I heard your considering

    An argument for pescetarianism

    I wanted to invite you all to enjoy
    Some ribs with me this weekend?
    I wouldn’t force you to eat this
    If you truly believe in what you are doing.
    Ideas remain un-actualized until
    they are created through the power of speech.
    Say it outloud.
    Keep chatting “ I will no longer eat steaks,
    chicken, or pork.
    I will only eat seafood and fish”
    Just keep practicing your

    Mantras

    Be careful some of that seafood contain mercury
    I read it makes some people do strange things,
    I am going to ask you this
    Please don’t get upset

    Do you speak to Ancestors ?

    After a few meals?
    I swear somebody told me that it happens.
    I was downtown yesterday

    My Girl and Me

    Trying to get some help.
    I stopped this man
    At the train station
    I asked him could he translate some documents I had.
    He started talking funny.

    I told my girl
    His speech could use some

    Translations

    Cause he sound crazy to me.
    We crossed the street and entered the building.
    I figured we could ask for help there
    The office we ended up at gave us some

    Resourse link to classes Aug 31, 2008

    Told me from their

    Website Download Software

    And on there I would find

    Class recordings

    There from

    Blackbird O wise one

    The man speaking the foreign language came into the office
    and tried to tell me something else

    My girl set him straight.
    She told him it would be
    nice if some people had their

    Mouths taped shut

    The man then said.. as he started speaking English
    I am sorry. I thought when you showed me the paper
    that was the language you wanted to hear the readings in.
    He said have you heard the news?
    The lastest head lines in the news?
    I said no…
    He then said the news is

    OBAMA WINS Pt ll

    of the election process.
    I then said.
    That is fine.
    I am voting for John McCain.
    He said you must be crazy
    To vote for that man.

    NOT SUPPORTING OBAMA IS ASSUMING YOU HATE

    Your own people.
    You have a problem with your own race!

    He got so mad.. he pulled out a gun.
    He said…

    Is there a solution to Doomsday?

    Cause buddy today is yours.
    He aimed his 45 at me
    I was scared not knowing what to do.
    He said you been rude with me now your
    going to pay for the things you do.

    I had to think fast.
    I was sweating.
    My knees were buckling too
    I grabbed my girls hand and whispered
    keep up baby.. we must make a run for it.

    When you find your in a situation

    Answers don’t always come to you
    He pointed his gun, someone yelled duck son
    and he fired and shot the lady behind the counter.

    Well It gave me time to run.
    I looked back to see her name.

    as I ran out I screamed

    R.I.P ms choochie

    :nuts:

    I would like to thank the poets whom titles I used to create this flow.

    Thank You so much Watz
    I appreciate the support you consistently give
    You are there for all of us time and time again.
    While we try to :climb: to new heights.

    You are a gem....:spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :thanks:


    Doing a flow from titles help me sharpen and work on my poetry skills
    Using titles that do not have an association and tie them into a story can be difficult, the story has to have continuity and end flowing to close the story. I have done two other flows this way. Each time they get more challenging. The topic titles have no relation and having to make them flow can be challenging and fun.

    If there was an exercise that could help strengthens the poetry skill. I would say something like this would be it.
