MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY POETS CONSIDER THE LIFE OF MAYA ANGELOU!!!



A sad bit of literary news dominated the media cycle today in Kansas City and throughout the world . . .

Phenomenal Woman Maya Angelou Dies At Age 86

However . . . What's noteworthy right now is that local poets are taking this occasion to celebrate the life and work of Maya Angelou . . .

For instance . . .

WE TROUBLED KANSAS CITY RISING STAR IRIS APPELQUIST FOR A COMMENT ON THE PASSING OF POETRY ICON MAYA ANGELOU AND SHE OFFERED A THOUGHTFUL RESPONSE!!!

We've long been a fan of Iris and realize that she's one of the best and brightest in this town . . .



Iris Seyz: "I don't have anything to say that no one else is saying. Except maybe that we should be not focus on her mortality but should have paid more attention to her legacy while she was still living. Its easy to lament the passing of someone great who tried hard to achieve some measure of equality and peace. Its harder to revere, accept, and join those who are doing the same work tomorrow."

To that end, we want to take time to remind readers that Kansas City has a vibrant poetry scene . . . Accordingly:

KANSAS CITY'S BOLD NEW POETS ARE DEDICATING A MAJOR UPCOMING EVENT TO DR. ANGELOU!!!



There's sure to be more reax and we welcome your FREE SPEECH reflections but it's worth noting that the passing of this literary legacy was not unnoticed in Kansas City.

Maybe not the right forum but I admire the effort. Ur right about one thing, there are some great poets in KCMO, other than rappers of course.

Phenomenal Man
A modified Maya Angelou poem by Commander Gently


Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not a hunk or pretty face you'd recognize.
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The sweet of my lips,
The stride of my step,
My caress of your nips.
I’m a man
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal man,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a woman,
The ladies swoon or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the smile with my teeth,
The taper of my waist,
And my touch with it's heat.
I’m a man
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal man,
That’s me.

Women themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so hard
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They melt with my touch.
I say,
It’s in the length of my member,
The glint of my smile,
My body so limber,
The orgasms for miles.
I’m a man
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal man,
That’s me.

Now you well understand
Why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me in passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the thrust of my hips,
The tug of your hair,
the command of your body,
Your lust for my care.
I’m a man
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal man,
That’s me.

Much ado about nothing.

A cultured lady and credit to her race. Too bad they don't try to model themselves after people like her instead of the latest rap thug.

She's rotting now, so get over it said...

Celebrate this dead old bag or not, we would have been much better off to have left her kind back in Africa to bang their drums, kill each other, and eat dirt.
