New #poem #ShortSkirts #FirstDraft

They say she lacks self respect 
So why respect her?
That the length of her dress is reason enough to shorten her breath 
Bruise her flesh to where not even makeup could cover up what she rarely covers… Since her outer body isn’t a mystery, she’s inviting men (and women) to spray graffiti all over the walls of her inner temple as if she’s an abandoned building 
Possibly once one of those abandoned children 
Or love has abandoned her 
But for now let’s say she’s not
Not even broken or lost 
She just likes to dress sexy 
So…
Saying No is forbidden…
It’s always yes… I mean… Look at how she’s dressed… She’s asking for it, right? 
Like… The victim should find ways to not be a victim 
Never mind the system doing a better job with crime and finding ways for criminals not to continuously commit them… This is the world we live in
Nudity is taboo 
Sexuality is confused 
So cover yourself up or don’t scream rape…
Wait… So there’s levels to being abused
Like a woman loses her choice 
If her ass is out 
She has no right to fight 
If she’s drunk, half dressed, and it’s late at night…
Her voice should be silenced to violence 
Cuz she’s been twerking for hours 
And you saw her underwear or lack there of in the club 
She clearly wanted to hump like she’s getting over a long Wednesday 
And sex with a random person would help her forget Thursday 
Cuz it’s Friday 
You’re dressed nice 
You’re with your boys 
She’s easy… (So you thought)
So you thought how could this “hoe”
Tell you no… And if she did she really means yes 
On some Robin Thicke ish… All you really know is you want it
Reverting back to your animalistic ways 
No means no no matter who is saying it…
I don’t care if she’s a prostitute or stripper and you just tipped her 
I mean where do some people get off with this false privilege. 
And those who say she got what she deserved are worse. 
I mean…
Women are being killed, raped, hurt…
Just because of the length of their skirt… #poetry #poet

Been happy for so long I was a fool to think it’d last forever… That black cloud’ll remind you about the bad weather… I have a choice 
Run away 
Or stick it out this time… Make sure I do it cuz I want to 
Not for the vine… Cuz social media will eat you if you let it… I’m far too malnourished to be treated like I’m breakfast… So check it… I message God every day
Pray for an answer…
Strength
Even a stand up guy falls when he’s trampled
Mufasa… Man I was
Young Simba 
Losing pops in Katrina 
Water came through like antelope 
Lion kingdom… was destroyed… The void 
The void 
The noise 
The voices in my head 
While I’m fighting his death between some legs… Trying to be a better man than he ever was 
Showing women extra love 
I know what’s it’s like to not have enough… I been through hell and felt a lot of bad energy 
So much that even my demons would show sympathy…
I do my best to stay strong tho… And pray that God be protection when traveling up the wrong road… #thoughtswritteninrhyme

#wordconnections is this Thursday!

So #SexvsLoveNOLA is a week away right, so let’s get the history real quick. In 2012, with the creative genius of Smut Da Poet, Smut, John Lacarbiere , and Dave Lemon put on the biggest spoken word and R&B show New Orleans has seen in a while called Sex Vs Love. It was held at The Suite on the Westbank. People drove from all over. The event brought in 200-250 people. The crowd raved about the show. It’d birthed relationships, jump started artists, introduced people to spoken word, and entertained many. Social media sites were in a frenzy. sex Vs love trends ever year. Artists like Jamar and Celeste had hashtags created for them #teamjamarcangetit #teamcelestecangetit. 
Now fast forward to 2014, we were scheduled to be at The Suite this coming Saturday June 14th, but due to circumstances beyond our control The Suite lost their liquor license. We thought about canceling the show but we did not want to disappoint y’all. So many of you have been looking forward to it and so have we. God came right on time. We were able to find a venue that’s actually larger in terms of space to hold the event in. It also adds a element to Sex vs Love that has yet to be touched… That outdoor element. That’s right! Sex vs Love This year do to unforeseen circumstances is being moved to Legends Food & Spirits’, On 2501 Canal St, outdoor patio area. The area can hold well over 400 people. We will have tiki lanterns, lightning, candles, and the moon and stars to accompany us this time around making sex vs love even sexier. By it being in that outdoor patio area, ladies we know you might have some concern but no worries we are making it as comfortable for you as possible, you can also dress as lightly as you like. 
We truly apologize if this causes any inconvenience for anyone but like we said this was beyond our control, but could be the outcome of something even better. They say God works in mysterious ways… We look forward I seeing y’all this Saturday, and thank you all for your continued support. #theBig3

New Poem #HonorThem

Death before dishonor 
Your honor… We often judge people based upon their actions 
So while this world spins on its axis 
There are people paying more than taxes 
To ensure that we live happily
Sadly…
We sometimes take it for granted…
In this… land of the… free 
Home of the brave 
We coward behind our opinions and rage 
Go on with our day to day 
While a mother of 3
With a husband at home 
Is blown… up… overseas 
Making sure her family remains free 
And we… Won’t even say thank you because we are against the war… Disagree with our president’s policies 
It’s like…
We can’t stand trash but no one wants to step up and be the trash man… But those brave men 
And women 
Who are willing… To put their lives on the line 
At the drop of a dime 
To ensure that the sun shines… On the faces of those who often mistake them 
Should be placed in… Our memories 
Their energy should forever strengthen these…
United States… No matter the case 
We shouldn’t care if there’s a hidden agenda 
Remember 
Somebody’s brother or sister 
Father or mother 
Aunt or uncle 
Cousin 
Gave their life not only for their families but for Every family in this country… So for those who lost their lives in the Civil War 
World War 1 and 2
Vietnam 
The war in Iraq 
Fighting terror 
Making sure America 
Is safe… Make no mistake…
We honor your lives 
For you have died…
With purpose… #HappyMemorialDay #poem #poetry #unitedstates #america #armedforces #nationalguard #army #navy #marines #airforce
