I like to take late night strolls
I like to say I’ve made friends with those big ole light poles
I like the quiet arousle I hear from a distance
I like hearing the sirens in the background thinking “Phew I just missed it”
I scroll through Twitter and I see another Black face
Have you seen her ? Have you seen her ? I told her to take her mace!
Of course it’s another Black woman why so surprised
Please retweet ! Please help us find her the clock is tickin right before your eyes!
Walking down these streets at night is a fine time to spot men
Some of them pale and some of them my kin
But skinmenship ain’t kinsmenship so I better watch my back
Cause those white vans?
They’ve plagued the streets worse than crack
I just want to take a stroll guys is that too much to ask
I’m sorry to even bother…I guess being a gentleman is such a hard a** task
