"A serenade to a tattoo not yet tagged..."


Alkebulan* encases the sounds
of transgressed feminine tribal cries.
Indigenous mic held tight
with spit saturated rebellious sixteen bars.
The insurgency was lost when
hip hop teleported the griotess
into the 21st century,
but he failed to protect her virtuousness
instead selling her into indentured servitude.
Drugs, fast food, chemtrails, broadband,
a ceiling on the mainstream
and a dose of baby momma drama
poison her womb.
She now serves suicidal triplets-
insecurity, sex and money.
What would Hottentot Venus
think of the video vixen?
Modern day freak show.
Her remains sprinkled over music videos
of scanty and unclad bodice.
Where are the matrilineal tribal descendants
of Alkebulan?
Warrior womyn I unleash my mojo
upon the mic
with lungs filled and diaphragm trained
I emancipate guttural calls for female combatants.
In the spirit of Majaji, Mbande Zinga,
Llinga, and Nandi*
I return to the dark matter of civilization birthing reincarnated warrior womyn souls.
