To dead beat dads everywhere

Walking around here
Like the earth is your throne
Working your third leg
Gotcha thinking that you grown
Always talking shit
Most of the time bragging
'Bout all the ladies you can get
And all the sex that you been having
Where's the love
Don't you know a fuck is a fuck
You done found your way to stupid
And it looks like you got stuck
Any chick getting with you
Is just swinging on dumb
Responsibility and money
How much you got - NONE
Always ripping and running
Fronting for ya peeps
Ask the homeless where they live
The answer will always be the streets
Ask the useless how they living
They say beg borrow and steal
Ain't you doing the same thing
Oh you say "I'm keeping it real"
You need to gift wrap that bullshit
Before the flies begin to swarm
Send it to a dude in Nebraska
Planting corn down on the farm
'Cuz we don't need it 'round here
What this home needs is a man
With a job and stability
Doing everything he can
To step up to the plate
And put some food on that bitch
Take care of your shorty
Say good bye to the clique
Get involved in your child's life
Spend some quality time
Buy the things your child needs
Get off your dead beat behind
That big bad nigga routine
Is getting kinda old
You just a niglet anyway
Already bought and sold

i remember this from the first time around, and again i have to say that the energy floors me, it is spoken with the profound understanding of what this shit feels like. i'm trying to get a grasp on what mr Stewart is trying to get across here, does he want to see a different view, the woe is me of the jerk that takes a hike and thinks he's all that? what i see here is visual in your face work and I LOVE IT. then again i see it as a real part of life, unsavory at best, maybe I'm missing something, wouldn't be the first time.......
continue on ms jack, glad to see you back

OKAY HERE IT GOES: in truth i'm not a spoken word poet but here is advise for all poets: most important, show, don't tell! i want to experience with you, not be told what the experience should be. also, think of subject matter. Stay away from (or at least look at it from a different point of view) subject matter that everyone writes about. for example there are many dead beat dad poems, all from the mother or child's point of view, yet no one wonders what the dead beat himself thinks, 9 out of 10 times it is not as simple as he's a jerk. there is alot of stuff you can do here.
well i hope this helps you. push forward

I L-O-V-E this. I understand how you feel. I have a little guy that would just give all of his toys know what it feels like to have a daddy. Damn hurts when you can give them EVERYTHING else under the sun EXCEPT THAT....and it just burns under my blood. VERY GOOD work Netta! Thank you...Teresa

lol - love the poem
It has a special energy, and thank God, I am not a dead beat dad. You got it all right. Love that title too! Very well done and thanks for visiting my site.

I never have understood these men, I mean I know what is, but why? Seems like such a waste to leave one child and create another one, that you will leave too.
