Protect Yourself

Poor's Box
Protect yourselves
and NEVER let them fear you
or they'll shoot you.
Stay poor. Stay quiet.
Live inside the shadows
Or your jail cell.
Have children who have children
Keep them stupid.
Keep them breeding.
You can be anything


  1. Wow I would love to know what inspired this...seems to have some political undertones? I love it.

    1. It was actually inspired by a news story read about a Black honors student who was shot 25 times in St. Louis. He had had a gun to protect himself, and set it on the ground, but it didn't stop them.

  2. Yikes. Hard lines, and such is life at times. How you be Ben Ditty???

  3. This is good and seems to highlight some class conflict which is always an interesting topic.


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
