Skin-game

by BAR Poet-in-Residence Raymond Nat Turner

 

The skin-game’s a

Thin game, melanin 

Game, Mickey Finn

Game, kingpin game,

No-win game—

Benjamin game, 100%

For the one percent…

Wage-slaves betting, Stockholm Syndrome-style, 

Against solidarity and losing their shirts to sheets,

Dunce caps, camouflage, blue uniforms, Brooks Brothers suits…

Prosecuting, redlining, foreclosing, pepper-spraying, killing

“Chinks” “camel jockeys,” “rag-heads,” “gooks,” “spooks,”

“Spicks,” “spades,” “niggers,” “sand niggers,” “fags,” and 

“Cunts” on command!

 

The skin-game’s a

Thin game, melanin 

Game, Mickey Finn

Game, kingpin game,

No-win game—

Benjamin game, 100%

For the one percent…

Trip-master monkey business 

Of Bacon’s Rebellion—

When the “white race” was

Invented, circa 1676—

To Occupy Oakland 2011

General strike-port shutdown 

Talks stalling: cultural nationalists 

“People of color” tossin’ “decolonize”

Dust in “white” activists’ eyes…

 

The skin-game’s a

Thin game, melanin 

Game, Mickey Finn

Game, kingpin game,

No-win game—

Benjamin game, 100%

For the one percent…

GPS leading bassackwards into the

Arms of Strong-arm Williams, Thom-

Ass Clarence, to Temples of Afrocentric 

Professors, Pinocchio politicians, Ringling 

Brothers of Rhetoric, torturing reason, trading 

Resistance for rubbing elbows with warlords &

Pledging allegiance to serial wars for slavery…
