Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Whitey on the Moon

A rat done bit my sister Nell.
(with Whitey on the moon)
Her face and arms began to swell.
(and Whitey's on the moon)
I can't pay no doctor bill.
(but Whitey's on the moon)
Ten years from now I'll be payin' still.
(while Whitey's on the moon)
The man jus' upped my rent las' night.
('cause Whitey's on the moon)
No hot water, no toilets, no lights.
(but Whitey's on the moon)

Curtis Mayfield's "Think" is one of the most beautiful instrumentals. When I got married, we had a small wedding and I was in charge of the music - we chose "Think" to walk down the aisle to start the ceremony..
Avatar 10:23am woodzepper:

Loving today's show!
Avatar 10:25am Lixiviated Life:

The sound of Curtis Mayfield bringing me back to the days of my youth growing up in the beat down cities of North Jersey. Polyester prints, platform kicks, candy store colors everywhere. Slow cruising prowl with the windows down. Curtains and music drifting down from fire escape windows. Summer nights always hot & cool. House party,on the corner, everywhere it's happening.
  10:26am Behemoth:

  10:27am Behemoth:

Thinking about the Bronx burning and the Newark Riots. I lived in Newark and NY during those times. I was the white boy who loved break dancing and rapping. I would die for human rights.
  10:31am Listener Bop Monroe:

don't. you're more valuable alive.
besides you'll miss the JB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am Itzall Ablurr:

This one from Fred Wesley & The J.B.'s echoes my mantra this morning while walking to my job- "I AM, I CAN, I WILL". I've decided this is the weekend of YES. P.S, this show is doing it hard and great.

@Behemoth there was rage no doubt, but there was a humanity at the core. Down at the every day level, we were all trying to make a life.
