F.H. Broxton: Who We Be

Spring '07 TOC

It ain’t enough to
Just be who we be
Jumpin’ through hoops to
Make sure everybody sees
Flappin’ about, hollerin’ and shout
Slappin’ that same old ashy knee.

People watchin’ everything we do
Some imagine us swinging in that ol’ tree
Wantin’ to yell shoo, fly shoo
Can’t we just be who we be?
No title, no categories
Rap, shoo-wop, twiddly-dee.

No matter what we make
Gaspin’ and scroungin’
They come to take
That new ideal, distinct appeal
While we loungin’
Thinkin’: Is this for real?
