Black Power - Poem by Twiggy C. Tubercio

the autocrat of racial slur
empowers itself through the fall of the bottomless cross
anti-Christ superstar in a whole new form
new sex falls and regurgitates her followers
swimming in 'sterile' blood
but blood not cleansing
washing with a dirty rag
stifle the Eiffel tower
max the train tracks
only 4-8 years of hell on earth
make your mark on the iron curtain
against all odds the appearing underdog takes its stand
