In a Perfect Poetic World


In a perfect world, I’m a follower of God’s son
And happily married to Tessa Thompson
Of course, this after I hit the lotto and move to the Chi
I just wanna be around my people before I die
I don’t want a nine to five just to survive
I wanna keep writing until poetry is revived
I mean why else was I given this God-given talent
To live off of ramen in order to pay my rent
Naw, I wanna go down as the greatest of this time
As the poet who didn’t rap but changed the world through rhyme
If you know anyone who supports the vision let me know
I just wanna make a difference for my art and people before I go
