Show me that there is there is something inside you
bigger than your booty or your breasts.
Show me a wetness from your eyes that tells me you care
more about what is happening to our people
than how juicy you are between your legs in bed.
Show me a high level of thinking about your future
more than what you can achieve by smoking weed today.
Show me a drunkenness of self respect sweeter
than the smell of Moscato sweating from your pores.
Show me a pride in your blackness
that is not covered by a crown of store bought Asian hair.
Show me an honoring as a black man
by not calling me by a racist name
which you would not accept coming from somebody white.
I will show you
worthy of the Queen
that you truly are.
