Black Man, Please…(Poem)

​​Black Man, please...

Don't feud.​​
Don't jet.
Get where you need to be pronto.
Look straight ahead
Speak concisely.
Eat and drink clean.
Expect mistreatment. Don't get caught off guard.
Erode the system daily.
Read regularly.
Value sleep.
Train for combat.
Comply for the moment, and survive to fight another day and to fight the right way.
When it's time to defend what you love, fight ferociously with every bit of rage and wisdom inside you.

From the Soul,
