Bamboozled No More: Untitled


 

born in a poor neighborhood
brown skin, hair of wooly sheep,
found work as a carpenter, paid hourly, no benefits,
hung out with a bunch of guys and one woman with “a reputation”
spoke the word in spoken word
nailed to a cross
refused to die
went home to his father
Won’t be passing our way again…for awhile!
