Poor People Food

"I want grease in my gravy and fatback in my greens"--Doug McCloud



There is a class divide among some blacks in this country that if it weren't for the gravity of the split would otherwise be comical. Over a year ago I heard one of my friends speak of poor people's…

the poor are breeding stock

the welfare and food stamps

the rich dole out to these sows and studs

serves as the paddock’s lock

and the lure to lead them up the ramp

so the ones with promise

can be separated from the duds

each season they trim their herd

this one has a beauty

worth cultivating

this one is tall and quick enough

to play pro ball

here is a voice to make them even richer

if they decide to let it be heard

a few with minds worth…

The Reverend John J. Raphael: Hypocrite!

This one has been kicking around in the back of my skull for nearly a year. I thought it would slip away like other stupid issues, but this one one kept coming back as I found it repeated at other locations. Finally, I felt it necessary to at least rebut the wet-dreams of a Catholic idiot.

Unbalanced scales of justice
There are people out there who think that the wold is supposed to be a nice, happy, joyful, fair and just place. It is not and it never has been. The world is a cruel unfair and unjust place. Bad things happen to good people, bad people get away with doing bad things, shit happens to every one, innocent people suffer and ass holes don't get their comeupance!

Hey Brother Can You Spare a Buck?

It seems that everywhere I go these days I am being beseeched by someone or something. It used to be that other than the random bum on the corner, the only time I would be harassed was from the government in the form of taxes or other types of theft, but lately it seems like I can’t go anywhere without being besought . I had become accustomed to the bum on the corner with the “I will work for food” sign in hand and the occasional parking lot confrontation of “hey brother can you spare a…
