Yes, this poem is your skelton to hang meat on to bring it alive. It's a flat black and white. Write it in color in 3-D. Don't give up on it. I thought it a creative use of rap, hood, and panthers (I assume the Black Panthers). I remember 1971 well. I was in Detroit. I don't remember rap then. But, could be wrong. Did rap exist in 1971. Hmmm.
Thanks very much. I thought that my line "took me back" would separate the rap I was listening to 3 days ago from 1971, but maybe I wasn't clear. Yes, the Black Panthers. Again, I realize that my cultural signs are recognizable to only a very few: their newspaper's(rag) motto was 'All The News That Fits'.
