In a Nut Shell

To say in a nutshell
Asked to say in round ups
Just in few words


It's like southern hospitality 
But not of chickens on the run
More to do with the blues


Parables on walls 
Verses, left for the masses
Heroes made of the ordinary


Smooth, slow, inch by inch
Note by note; in inscriptions
In rhyme, in rhythm, in play


That sound with passion
Built into the DNA of vision 
Seen in revolution, this is silent rebellion 


Coded sounds for the faithful 
To hold like promises of emancipation
This is a new genre, in the know


Before explosion, outburst
Graffiti on the walls 
With coded messages


It will come to have its followers 
And believers, doubters, critics 
This is what we came to make of poetry


Comedy and made it our own
This is free thinking 
From pen to paper and beyond 


To thought provoke 
This is words without borders
To say in a nut shell, just in a nutshell

  1. What a lyrical poem. In a nutshell, to quote Simon and Garfunkel, "the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenant halls..."

    Brilliant!
