Help Wanted #BlackLivesMatter

A Poem by JustZo

Desolation of the Black Community


Help Wanted


Attention! New job opportunity! Seeking young black males ages 18-25

From broken homes, shattered internally

Posted on the corner, abandoned at the borders of America, "the hood"

Hoodlums, gun toters, heavy weed smokers, dead beat dads

That kids never even had a chance to have

Apply here and apply now, Heres how:


1. Shoot a n***a

2. Sell drugs to a n***a

3. Treat your queens as less than just that

4. Tear down your fellow brother and community, s**t, who needs them anyway

5. Give the world exactly what it gave you.....Hell!


Come one come all to join your local urban circus!

We need more young weak brothers, preferably with no purpose

Weak minded and slow with kindness but quick handed with steel

Angry spirited and ones who won't hesitate to retaliate to kill

You will fit in perfect in this urban circus


Behold, come see the amazing black man!

In prison, 3 kids, not out yet but already on his way back in

Second to the stage, see the vein black woman

With nothing to show the world but a*s and breast

Believe me, this is one wine that will not get better with time

Now! For the main attraction

See the young black child

Lost in the world, living by their own rules

Governed by a higher authority, that wasnt meant to elevate them in the first place

Mis-placed, futile efforts, reaching for goals that have already been deferred


Apply now or get your tickets here!

Exact dollar amounts please

Cuz we dont have "change" here

See you soon at your local urban circus
