No Black Fight

   no johnson

   no Ali

   no Lewis
   no Sugar Ray
   No Black fight
   no fists no backbone
   no elbow grease
   no stamina
   no long distance runner
   no champion in the ring
   no nationalist
   no fearless men
   no fearless women

   no ancestor consciousness
   no cry for justice
   no liberty or death

   no justice no peace

   no death do us part
   no nothing
   no housing
   no job
   no medical
   no music
   only smooth
   only fusion
   delusion
   no community
   only multicultural
   diluted polluted
   convoluted
   gentrified
   homogenized
   pasteurized
   are you surprised
   no Fillmore
   no Harlem
   no DC
   no Philly
   no ATL
   where shall you dwell
   in hell
   the empire falls
   no news to you
   the Republic falls
   where shall you be
   what part shall you grab
   shall you stand
   with dick in hand
   heart racing
   Whites take theirs
   Latinos too
   Asians too
   Gays/lesbians too
   what will you do
   stuck on stupid
   walking like ducks
   pigeons
   reverse evolution
   moon walking like Michael
   remember the time
   look at the man in the mirror
   no look
   no memory
   smoke yo blunt
   life up in smoke
   we did the same
   24/7
   Daddy it's too much smoke in yo house!
   No love for woman
   children
   siblings
   neighbors
   friends
   no nothing
   no God
   no devil
   lone stranger
   rides into sunset
   no Tonto
   no tomorrow
   no yesterday
   no now.
   Women cry,
   I hate weak nigguhs!
   Men cry, I hate punk bitches!
   no unity
   no dialogue
   no consensus
   no plan
   no game
   no respect
   no win.
