Black Steel In the Revolutionary Theater Of the 21st Century

Like Cinque
Nat Turner
Malcolm X
& Huey–

Because I’m a rebel…I rebel.
Nothing revolutionary
About it. Just plain survival.
I can’t fathom fighting
For this nation of disarray indifferent
‘Bout my living or dying.
Don’t mean to sound incendiary
But never will I beg my

Own pardon
For who I
Am or what
I’ve become.
