The Way of Black Folks...

by Trini Poet

The way of black folks always be...
Dat shittin' fool who owe me money
Dah ones who be catchin' all dah attitude with me
Man so we black folks stop yuh see!

The way of black folks might just be...
Dat damn hoochie staring at me
Yeah you!...twistin' yuh neck 
and rolling yuh eyes tryin' to see
Looking at my man who dancin' wit me
Girl!!! Yuh betta step off befo I knock yo'teeth

The way of black folks who trying to be...
hatin' and baller blockin' on me
tryin' to cut me and stick me for my money
Lil'chile can't you see
I work damn hard just to be where I be

But the way of black folks really need to be...
living together in true HARMONY
Enjoying each others success giving to those who need
Being true to each other
Instead of back stabbing your brother
Making a better way for our future
With our elders being the leader

Only then will the way of Black Folks Eternally be..
Stronger than that "Fake" white patriarchy
