everything’s more fun with black people…

the poetry of jazz conceptualist rodger pegues
In the 60’s
we usta run to the TV
to religiously watch
Black Tv shows
I Spy
Room 222
The Jeffersons
if even to lust
Lieutenant Uhura’s thighs
as if our initiation
into our own culture
was required
we genuflected
and survived
up until a point
where a nigga can
have enough freedom
to call you a bitch
and make you pay him
to call you that
and the circle goes on
