Poem

Dis ‘fro
Coiled or curled or kinky,
Uncombed
Ain’t no ‘Do
A brush won’t do

Dis ‘fro
Lines on the scalp,
Take me to you
I mean a ‘lack’, lovey
I mean Black, bro
I mean fear, father
Baking me black, boo
Taking me back, brother
Taking my swag, sister
Leading me to me..

Ain’t going back
A relaxer, a wig,
Is all it takes , dawg
To fix it all
