a cultural icon and so much more

the brown bag prophet
looking quite
dapper
stopped me
and
said
i’ve decided
to make
a music video
encapsulating
urban sounds
as
my background
while i
read poetry
lines
of verse
that
bounce around
in
four
five time
something
different
for
shuffling feet
a city beat
full of cosmopolitan heat
a beat
of
gritty words
often heard
but
ignored
with artificial deafness
like
the virtual blindness
that causes
some folks
to
step around
the poor
when entering
park avenue style doors
to meet
some poor working whore
who pretends
not to be bored
with
pinstriped suits
worn
by those
clients
who babble
with pouts
about
first this
and
then
that
as if someone
should pass around
mercy’s hat
a high price
to pay
just to have food
for the day
i’m certain
it’s going
to be a hit
folks
love hearing
about those
headed
for
hell’s pit

  1. It does have a good pulse, reflective of our fast society that is in such a hurry to accumulate wealth and power that it doesn’t have time to listen to its soul.
