Poem For A Lady Whose Voice I Like - Poem by Nikki Giovanni

so he said: you ain't got no talent
if you didn't have a face
you wouldn't be nobody

and she said: god created heaven and earth
and all that's Black within them

so he said: you ain't really no hot shit
they tell me plenty sisters
take care better business than you

and she said: on the third day he made chitterlings
and all good things to eat
and said: "that's good"

so he said: if the white folks hadn't been under
yo skirt and been giving you the big play
you'd a had to come on uptown like everybody else

and she replied: then he took a big Black greasy rib
from adam and said we will call this woeman and her
name will be sapphire and she will divide into four parts
that simone may sing a song

and he said: you pretty full of yourself ain't chu

so she replied: show me someone not full of herself
and i'll show you a hungry person
