IDFWU (a poem inspired by the Papoose Alphabet Slaughter)


Pay me what you owe me

Unequal pay

Unequal love

Unequal education

Unequal respect

Unequal in the eyes of the law

Dreams Deferred

Yes we can, yes I can, yes I did

Dreamer keep dreaming, dream for the future, no dream too small, some don’t dream at all

Sweet dreams sweet lover of mine see you in your dreams

Financial Aid Woes

I’m poor, I can’t pay, IDFWU Sally Mae

You took me for all I had before I had anything at all

Financial aid, aid me

I’m wounded (well my credit is)

The doorway to my future is blocked, unblock me allow me access to the essential building blocks in life

 White supremacy

White man you’re not better than me my skin is a blessing you cannot use me with your supremacy you think you’re so supreme American horror story the next supreme you scary you devour the very beings you set out to become white man you’re not so bad said my third uncle through marriage he ain’t blood blood white man your hands are covered in it look at it. Look at your face why is it the same color?

UNITY (Queen latifah voice)

Uniting a people who hate each other

United States, united we stand

We stand on the backs of others who crush the spirits of those who are different

Divided we fall

We were divided way before we fell

We fell because there was nothing to hold us together

Is all lost? I mean, how could it really be?


Unite together

Unite in peace

Peace is the answer

Peace or deuces

Deuces to you

You’re untrustworthy

Deuces to the alternative facts

Two fingers to the fairytales

Here’s a wild idea: maybe we can be there for each other the way we use to be, you know, to really get shit done.
