Oh, what. You thought I was done, huh?
Well this is Leap Day 2016 and like many days, this is a extra bonus. I did this with the Olde to Sagittarius Poems, so I’m going to do this with the Black History Month thing. And trust me, it’s long waited to do this. So it’s time to do this on Leap Day in which many might forget about February 29th or so.
Listen up black folks: Black History Month is, was and our time to shine to start.
Without the use of our ancestors, we wouldn’t have a part to spark.
No matter we talk about the Pharaohs, Kings and Queens plus Presidents that ruled like a boss,
Never forget their triumphs and challenges that the purpose that caused.
As usual we must continue talk about the roots of Slavery, and the use of Civil Rights,
If we gonna be real about it, never ever give up those fights!
We can do, preview, summarize and examine our proud black history, with the honorable things up the latter,
For you non-black folks hating, and those side-eyeing, Our Black Lives INDEED Matter!
Continue to march on folks of color, we are done yet!
Sometimes we have to make that gamble to make the bet!
For the regular, irregular, educated, partially learned, the Conscious, the Semi-Conscious, the Brave, the REAL Activism, the REAL Evangelists, the Introverted, Extroverted, Ambiverted, the Bold, the Beautiful, the rebel, the Handsome, the Rugged, the Strong, the Mindful, the Doers, the Energetic, the middleman, the middlewomen, the anchors, the straight, the techie, the religious, the freethinker, the gay, the tranny, the BiSexual, the mixed, the supporters, the secretive, The Singles, The Married, The Widowed, The Life Partners, the honorable, the distinguished, the grounded, the down to earth, the political, The American, The Canadian, The British, The French, The Australian Black, The Afro-Latino, The Italian, The Haitian, The Jamaican, the Jazz, the Gospel, the Hip-Hop, the Rap, The R&B, The Folk, The Rock, The Metal, The New Age, The Dance, The Vocal, The Opera, The Classical, The Old School, The New School, The Sporty, The Medical, The Dental, and many many others with the Black Fist in sight,
Strap on your seat belts no matter what you think, we taking this everyday flight.
For our Black men, women and children of our black community that has gone home to glory,
Us here on the planet, we will and must TELL your story.
So no need to ask permission, or asking for to be valid,
We should be out doing us anyway, from the time we come, and to be candid.
So as we close out the 90th Edition of Black History Month of 2016 and make way for beyond and 2017,
Never forget the lessons that were and were not peachy keen.
From the lessons, causes, joys, concerns, and missing pieces that us Black folks we need to flex,
As we continue to know about us, I ask this: there have been many many firsts, who got next?
