PO' Poets


April 15th Everyday On The Paper Trail

(The Chorus)

White paper, green paper get that paper
White paper, green paper get that paper
White paper, green paper get that paper

Doctor smacks your ass
You are off to the races
Parents say get an education

(The Chorus)

White paper, green paper get that paper
White paper, green paper get that paper
White paper, green paper get that paper

On stage, cap & gown rolled up white paper in your hand
High school diploma means nothing
Lint in my pocket feels like sand

Sign the doted line on white paper
To get some green paper called a loan

Trayvon is my son

Property Monopoly

Property Monopoly- A poem for all Displaced peoples across Pachamama-( and the people that displace them)

 

Property Monopoly

buys one house

then the other

Evicts all the families

even their mothers

 

Moves People Out

Moves people in

Buys another house

but never sees within

 

"Clean up the Neighborhood",

Living Pimp-Free...

Dedicated to all warriors for Decolonization from this web of lies... thx for NEVER giving up the fight!

 

Living pimp –free

is not eas-y

because to be really, truly pimp-free

is to be without

the security

 

Of systems in place,

To secure and displace,

Migrante Indocumentado Seremos parte del 99%?

Migrantes Indocumentados Seremos Parte del 99%?

 

House-Less

 

Still no resound to be

from the night nor ground

the left nor right giving sound

no riotous revelry. . . . yet!

 

yet the blood does violently run

to its highest point from within the young

no longer quite with frustration

no longer thrilled by morbid caution

I am Troy Davis Killed at the hands of overseers of plantations

I am troy Davis

Killed at the hands of overseers of plantations

 

I am Kenneth Harding

Murdered by Po’Lice for not having
