To Spread The Truth Like a Disease

When I was hungry, you fed me

by sending me to the grocery store

I tried to use my dollars earned

to stock up on some wholesome scores

when they met me and told me

I could not pass into the promised land

without denying my face to my self

without first putting on a mask

is this what freedom means?

i ask

I had my cam and shot the man

tried to rip his off and spit

into his face the holy word

with speckled bits of my disease

love one another,

etcetera

wear a condom, keep your legs closed

or else you’ll do as I have told

and face the wrath of

the garden’s own border police
