Stein Bop Blues March on Gentrifiers:

 
Shhhhhhhh
Decibel Dictators dislike drumming pouring
 
Poly-rhythms out windows of the Casquelord
Center, poly-rhythms propelling rainbows of
Glistening dancers into ecstatic community…
 
Shhhhhhhh
 
They’re bothered by Baptist get-down Gospel
 
Choir rehearsal sparks charging joyful noise
Spilling from stained glass windows on to streets…
 
Shhhhhhhh
BBQs by the Lake bother them, too. Perhaps
It’s loud laughter, line-dancing, clacking of
Black and white dominoes on tables, smells
of spicy foods feeding faces happy against all odds?
 
Shhhhhhhh
Maybe it’s not verbs bothering them? Maybe it’s the
Nouns—Vooodo Children born of suspicious skin
Tone? Ebony, mocha, chocolate tones of thugs and
Thieves heard in creaking floorboards, rustling drapes
Unwelcome at home
 
Shhhhhhhh
We are Africans—Africa’s all humanity’s birthplace—
We are mostly proletarians. ‘They’ are Europeans:
Italians, Irish, Polish, Scottish, etc., chasing their tales
shadowboxing ‘whiteness’ white noise next door.com
Techno-coated crackkkers, criminal lineage on Ohlone
Land…
 
Shhhhhhhh
It was Ohlone land Ohlone land it was was it Oholone land
They swiped with lead lead lead the way for swiping and flipping
 
Flipping and swiping swiping and flipping flipping houses like
flapjacks flipping people with blackjacks heads they win tails we
Lose…
 
Shhhhhhhh
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
 
Manifest DestinyDestiny Manifested Jerry had a plan a
10K Plan Jerry had a 10K Plan and a Pacifica program
‘We The People’ Jerry had a plan a 10K plan a 10K plan
10K plan resembling 3K plans, 3K plans for Schaafing us
 
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
 
Unsettling settlers settle settling like sulfur over UN peace
Talks Unsettling settlers settle neighborly disputes using police
like cavalry and Kit Carson Indian killers going West Unsettling
settlers settle settling like pesticides on gardens
Killing everything living Unsettling settlers settle settling on whizzing
by whistling “Dixie” as they “Look away, look away” Unsettling settlers
settle settling in Tha Town rather than quietude of Tha Creek, or ‘Cord
Libraries on putting greens…
 
Shhhhhhhh
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
 
Unsettling settlers settle settling on suspicious sub-prime activity
Suspicious scarlet streaks from Wells Fargo BoA and Fannie Mae
Unsettling settlers settle settling Post Racial debates in the Age of
Austerity we work hard walk open-coated wide berths revealing
Weaponless palms show we are not shady up to no good potential
Threats keep techno-coated crackkkers comfortable at ease keep
white noise next door.com down
 
Shhhhhhhh
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
History repeats repeats itself
 
Automatic, systematic hardwired DNA they’re ‘race’ machines watch ‘em
Get down clicking mouses playing ‘race’ cards doing old jobs of every
Euro no matter how dirt poor check challenge question Blacks about
‘Traveling papers’ “There’s cotton/tobacco to be picked, where you goin’,
boy/gal who’s your masta?”
 
Shhhhhhhh
Ducks, quiet geese, they came for Occupy, they’ll come for you next….
