    What's up with all this jazz ****?
    not the dizzy gillespie miles davis
    **** brother blow that horn jazz
    **** - that all that jazz-
    social jazz ****?

    cop cars buzzing in on bars
    to kill another brother man of color
    that paints this world beautiful
    terrorists attacking an alledged terrorist
    another man of color
    jazz ****...institution-all
    racism
    hate-ism
    ism isms
    white justice system in black robes
    blowing the futures away with disproportionate
    sentences...too many brothers found
    crushed by paragraphs
    of a "colored only" constitution
    and fool book that this country uses
    to abuse us

    what's up with this jazz ****...not that
    billie holiday ella fitzgerald
    go on girl / scat that / croon that
    ...swoon that tune
    riff

    this social jazz ****
    this brothers hanging' on corners
    in a round world slangin' cane ****
    rocks droppin' from the top of the fourth bar
    to the first crushin' other brothers and sisters
    with conditioned rhythms and rhymes
    maiming each other with stree and hard
    times......

    brothers....blowing each other
    away with bullet filled bent trumpets
    trying to create a better day for them...
    creating some broken jazz ****
    what's up with this social jazz ****
    this "liquor stores will never go out
    of business" jazz ****...while
    folks are watching there savings begone
    because of ENRON

    (crooked *** white dudes)

    what's up with this jazz **** not that
    gerald albright thelonius monk
    charlie "bird" parker **** cat ****
    blow that horn hit them keys
    jazz

    this social jazz **** that has black folks
    hating black folks worse than anyone else

    self-hate-ism.....................................

    caught up reading the music to another
    man's musical to his dissyncopation
    leaving our own African drumbeats
    under the stairs to gather dust

    brother
    sister
    beat them djimbes
    beat those djoun djouns
    clap those claves
    dance your dance
    and get with some
    real jazz ****.
