Mother’s Rage


Touch him one more time and I swear by the lump in my left breast, I will slash your throat and decorate your dark soul on your skin for the world to see.
You sons of bitches won’t let black boys be.
Black boys can’t walk on tiptoes.
Black boys can’t like girls in stilettos.
Black boys can’t walk with pocketed hands in the name of swag.
Black boys can’t be white.
Black boys can’t be smart.
Black boys have no right to see the light
And black boys can’t be Superman.
Black boys can’t be scared.
Black boys can’t be right.
Black boys can’t shit brown.
Black boys can’t even breathe!

Touch him one more time, and by God, thou shall taste steel.
