Poetry that Gives Birth to Revolution

Author:

We need powerful empowering poetry
Poetry that promotes positivity
Poetry that encourages people to progress

Poetry that gives birth to revolution

We need poetry
that puts on black berets,
black dashikis, black pants, and black boots
Poetry that rises and raises its fist
to run after the oppressor to oppose
its rendering racism

Poetry that challenges the boys in blue
Poetry that kicks butt while we sit back
and say, "Get 'em poetry!!"

Poetry that gives birth to revolution

Black folk need poetry
that gangsters the grime in the ghetto
Poetry that gathers graceless women,
gutless men, and guiltless children
to guide them back to greatness

Poetry that disintegrates crack
and evaporates alcohol so that we don't
continue to fall into destruction

Poetry that gives birth to revolution

This world needs poetry
that puts an end to poverty
to starvation
to homelessness
to A.I.D.S.
to dehumanization
to government regulation
to population control
to depletion of Earth's natural resources
to war
to worry
to suffering
to pain
to the Bush and Tony Blair regime

Poetry that gives birth to revolution!
