Cornbread & Collard Greens

fried chicken
watermelon
grape Kool-Aid

fried watermelon
and
chickens drinking
grape Kool-Aid

fried brains
sizzle
at the
stupidity of
it all

drinking down
grape Kool-Aid
like poison fed
to babies

all
of the watermelon
has turned
rotten under the sun

rotten under your
judgement
your
jeering
your ignorance

norms stream
in and out
of culture like
Aunt Jemimah’s
bad dreams

telling us
who we are
why we are
where we are

at the
end of it all
blackness
is
Strength.

    Ugh.
    The stereotypes and over generalizations are becoming more and more ridiculous. But of course, “it isn’t that serious” they say *Rolls Eyes* Whatever.
    “fried brains

    Yes, Ma’am and that’s the simple green eggs and ham to it all…
