I have to come clean here.
The first time I heard on NPR
Jessie Smollent (the ‘Empire’ actor)
walked into a police precinct
with a noose around his neck
my liddle voice said ‘fake news’,
then moved on to more gabble.
The first thing a black man would do
is get that noose off.
Now, he Will get hung high.
Too bad we can’t see the future.
