My Wardrobe Makes Me Mean Business - Poem by Terry Coates

I mean business
I mean business when I put on my shirt
My shirt that comes down to my neez
My shirt that is pitch black and no other color
My shirt that means respect where I come from
My shirt that makes me stand out in crowds
My shirt that over power everything it sees
I mean business
I mean business when I put on my shorts
My shorts that go down to my ankles
My shorts that have a fade of black but is white
My shorts that symbolize the struggle I go through on the streets
My shorts that make all others the same and simple
My shorts that make me who I am
I mean business
I mean business when I put on my shoes
My shoes that are a dark, dark black
My shoes that make me walk to get anything I need
My shoes that give me the serge
My shoes that also give me respect
My shoes are my third home
My wardrobe is my first home
I mean business
