People are arguing over whether a black woman should star as 007 in the next James Bond movie. Others are saying a black woman should not play Ariel in the next “Little Mermaid” film. All these things are BS diversions. Instead, we need to focus on how Trump is destroying our environment and promoting hate and racism. That is why I wrote this poem:
The Final Distraction
Suddenly everyone was staring,
directly at their TV’s news cast.
Today was the day that the government
would reveal what they knew about
outer space aliens visiting our planet.
The news reported that aliens exist.
At the pentagon suddenly everyone was staring,
out the windows expecting to see protestors.
On Wall Street suddenly everyone was staring,
out of high rise offices expecting to see investors,
on sidewalks outside screaming for their money.
They saw no one gathered anywhere.
That is because at the very moment
of the outer space alien reveal,
suddenly everyone was staring
at their cell phones as they dinged,
with a different emergency news flash.
The public was now totally transfixed
on this more important news story.
It concerned the Cardi B. and Nicki Minaj feud.
Nicki Minaj threw shade on Cardi B,
accusing Cardi of trying to stop her bags.
Cardi B said she gets it poppin with these hands
and while she’s busy winning awards,
Nicki is getting dragged by her lacefront.
Nicki responded, “Unlike a lot of these whores
whether their wack or lit/at least I can say
I done wrote every rap I spit.”
The public is being asked to take sides.
Lil Yachty, DJ Akademikis, and Dj Spinking,
have all decided to join team Cardi B.
Lil Uzi Vert, 6ix9ine, Raj Ali, and Iggy Azalea
have all declared for team Nicki.
People are trying to get Lil Mix to take sides.
It’s a fight to see who will be top queen.
I can’t believe as humans we have sunk so low.
I neither know who any of these people are
or give a damn about their idiotic feud.
Suddenly everyone is staring,
out their windows and doors,
into the streets where aliens have landed.
The public was pre-occupied with tabloid B.S.,
now we are occupied by alien invaders.
People are screaming in absolute fear.
I for one am staring with a welcoming smile,
happy to see some intelligent life on this planet.
