No Thanks to The Man!
No thanx to the man
on this day
a lie crafted by uncle sam
no thx to the myths of
supposed pilgrims gifts
no thx to the killin
caused by so many under the lie of thx giving
No - the thx i have
is the thx for the land,
So i have a new list-
not defined by pilgrims myths
coming from our collective lips
the thx i have is for the spirit of uncle al, mama dee
tony's love, tiburcio's heart, marlon's mind, jewnbug's rhymes, bruce's words, muteado's eyes, thorntons' time, charles designs, joes climbs, corazon de ingrid, voce de teresa and all of our lives...
the beauty of of our unending work & struggle
as uncles. mamas, sons and bruddahs...
i give thx for the, care, silence, truth, pain, change, art , poetry, words, resistace and all with the deepest humility-
becuz without u all there would be no me...
