Black Man Hung in Mississippi – Grown in the USA- Poem by artikle  copyright 2015.

STRANGE FRUIT
STILL GROWS IN AMERICA.

GROWN IN THE U.S.A.
STRANGE FRUIT.

LATELY
SEEMS AS
ORGANIC AS WHOLEFOODS.

T,T,T,T, TJ MAXX.
THANKS FOR PULLING THE HANG LOOSE TEES
WITH THE NOOSE
OFF YOUR SHELVES.

UOK  FRAT.
SINGING GOOD OL’ BOYS’ PEP SONGS
ABOUT ZERO NIGGER TOLERANCE.
R WE OKAY?

strange fruit, poplar tree, black man hung mississisppi

STRANGE FRUIT STILL GROWS IN AMERICA.
FROM A POPLAR TO A CHOKE HOLD
TO SHOTS THROUGH THE BACK
WITH HANDS UP!
IN ’15
STRANGE FRUIT IS BECOMING
MORE AND MORE POPULAR.

AS WE ROT IN THE STREETS
SOME FOLKS THINK
THIS FRUIT IS free.

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
