What can you do wt somebody like me?
float like a butterfly,
sting like a bee
tap u in d mind & eyes so many times
u see 3 (3rd eye vision)
dumbfounded 4 days
tornado watch
no good
Liberation Poetry
2 rebuild d neighorhood

Muhammad Ali
Gave Injustice givers dey ring back
Re-oriented our rack (minds)
So we could be Free
Physically & Mentally
World Champ
Neva Sugarcoated his Words
Athlete & Freedom Fighter
If we gon bite (copy) anything
Ain’t nothing Tighter
A Lifetime of Hardwork, Unity & Commitment
Then, Heaven on Earth, We Get.
