I AM THE BADDEST IN BENICIA:
I am the baddest in Benicia
With an attitude as peaceful
as a Dove.
I walk tall, carry a Big stick,
with a smile everybody loves.
My Pen do my fighting
When I am not in the ring.I don’t physically fight
I don’t touch a thing!
Kids say, “Oh Badd one
I want to write like you.
You write about LIFE, LOVE
and sometimes SERIOUS things too.
I say I’m like a Black Panther, aware and curious.
And like a cat I use my head.
Never moving too fast or too furious.
I feel no shame when I write the truth.
About racism, sexism, and sometimes
I float like a mosquitoe
and when I write I sting
like a flea.
There is no other Badder in Benicia.
Truly you must agree!
I’m a Bad Mother(shut yo mouth).
I’m just talkin bout me!!!
I’ve read Maya, Baldwin, Mailer and Dickinson too
And Nikki Giovanni, just to name a few.
But please don’t sell me short
Because I say I write.It’s the size of the fight in the dog
and not the dog in the fight!!
And when I’m finished with you
I’m not gunna brag.
You see this fight was already
Really, in the BAG.
But I will offer you a hand up
and the news that is the latest.
It will read extra, extra read all about him.
He REALLY, REALLY is
THE BADDEST and
Dare say I,
(I’M A BADD MAN)!!!
