    WE COLORED AGAIN
    =================

    Playing in the sun

    Dumb slumming today

    Sure nuff tanned...

    Being Colored again

    Soul on fire ~

    Cool in the talk

    In hip-hop attire

    We walk the walk

    We shall overcome

    Some other day

    We chillin' now;

    Around the way

    We can't be Black-

    Just stuck on proud

    Baby, don't play me

    We gettin' down!

    Thanks, I thought that perhaps some brave soul would comment on the impact of this piece-

    Stay Black!

    STUCK ON PROUD
    is the rhetoric of the day
    through stupid things we say
    and the games we play
    day after day
    and into the night
    wallowing in our pride
    we live in our lie of
    brotherly love
    WE GOT NO LOVE
    for one another
    just another lover
    claiming to be something
    we're not
    toooo
    STUCK ON PROUD
    to allow
    others into our space
    to comfort a race
    that doesn't want comfort
    WHAT DO WE STAND FOR
    if not each other

    LET THE RIVER FLOW

    the abstract the ironic!!!
    loved the approach to the
    mounting hypocrasy and delusion
    that must ultimately be dealt with.
    Well penned, Poet!!!
