Welcome to Episode Four of the “Unrequited Love Series”. Today, I’ll delve into a different type of love — my love for family, friends and culture.
One And The Same
Ms. Fat Booty, the painted on face beauty, tricking is her duty
She thinks she’s the baddest ‘cause her post just got all them likes
But when I saw her in public she didn’t live up to all the hype
I see the glue on your eyelashes boo
She’s a space cadet, I shaded her and she ain’t got a clue
Looking all dumbfounded
Understanding her worth, she can’t wrap her mind around it
Meanwhile Mr. Sophisticated is some ol’ arrogant prick
Always thinking with his insignificant d**k
Treating women like they ain’t shit
Trying to feed his lacking ego
That’s why I call him Mr. Incognito
He hides his true identity for the truth he can’t bare
After all, without the façade who’s gonna stop and stare
That’s what it’s all about right, attention
Them concerned about the societal effects? Tuh, no intentions
It’s a dog eat dog world and its inhabitants are greedy
Why go the other way when sleepwalking is far too easy
I prefer the road less travelled shout out to Robert Frost
Watch out for them shiny thangs, even pseudo popularity comes with a cost
A reputation I cain’t afford
If I sell my soul, can it be restored?
I wrote this poem after frustration from being around a poorly misguided young lady and a supposedly sophisticated man. They were from totally different worlds. One having a penchant for using her body to get what she wants from men all while unconsciously diminishing her worth. The other having a penchant for using women for sex behind closed doors all while he publicly promoted the “good guy” image for himself. They were alike in that sense — putting on a facade publicly to hide all that was really going on inside.
I couldn’t understand how they didn’t see that they were negatively contributing to all that is wrong with our community — more specifically the Black community. So I put pen to paper and the rest is history.
