Brownsugatoo? She's a black woman and spoken word poet with a lot to say and a bitter-sweet way of saying it. Sometimes harsh, at other times gentle, she still sometimes express in voice so tough it makes you want to sing the Black Panther anthem, "The revolution has come, it's time to pick up the gun." At other times, it makes you want to cry, in the powerful yet gentle voice of Nina Simone:
"I love you, Porgy.
Don't let him take me.
Don't let him handle me with his hot hands.
If you can keep me, I want to stay here.
Safe and forever. I got my man."
Today, Inhumane tugged at me,
Spoke to me,
And tore me to the core:
“Teenage girl gang raped outside
A Richmond high school ‘door’.”
The tears stung
My face was numb.
Emotions just clawed at each other.
‘Cause what I physically WANTED to do -
So I wrote “release”…
“That was somebody’s daughter!”
Guess it was a day too late,
For y’all to be taught
That she is a Queen.
“You were SOMEBODY'S son!”
You could have been-
NO, it IS too late.
A throne for you?
There is none.
