‘all natural’ by Lamont Lilly

all natural

i like the kind of hair
that will stand up for its rights
the kind that kicks
screams and protests
the kind that resists
and boycotts with every coil
the kind that fights
riots and rebels
the kind that won’t
be quiet for nobody
the kind that won’t
be anything but black
the kind that refuses
to relax
