I died in custody
Police brutality

My story started way back
Before I lived like a rat in tha kitchen
I swear you’ve been here before
You’ve seen this face – you’ve seen this face before
Picking the fag butts off the floor
Destined never to be more
Deep in the underbelly
Of “inclusive society” – not like a saint

Never to be seen again

You don’t like me or my urban poetry
Deep beneath the epidermal layer
Of your urban
Metropolitan bliss – now face a score of us
That’s why you’re scared of truth
My lifelong mission’s been to figure you out
Why I’m so UGLY to you, in the back of your mind
Like a figment…

Tell mama,
“Once I’ve found my feet,
I’ll be more than just a black boy”

Police brutality
In the 21st Century
