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,


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
