Tell Them

by Jermaine Hicks


They say I'm negligent
but so intelligent
casting blame without evidence.
To those who hate,
tell them the world is my residence.
My mind is so heaven sent,
rhythm is my instrument,
my name is one verse,
and my heart is the president.
My purpose is to operate.
My life,
a plan to obviate.
Other poets, I aggravate.
Tell those women who immoderate.
My walk is to navigate... never negotiate.
I bang for myself and the youths who associate.
Haters, I exterminate,
with these poems I invented,
tell them I facilitate.
Assemble and I fabricate,
the qualities to fascinate.
My world be the law,
so tell them I federate.
A particle to figurate,
my realness I demonstrate.
You do what I never do,
Tell them I educate.
