OFF THE WALL
Before you charge me with a crime
take the time to hear and see my cry
I didn't mean to deface this building
but look closely at what was scribed
......understand why I needed to write
my thoughts onto this brickstone
at towering heights
I didn't have pen or paper
only this rock for chalk
and well, this sidewalk, it wasn't long enough
nor upright enough...
for my lefts to write
the city train couldn't take the length of thoughts in my brain
so I didn't randomly picked my place to scoll
I just turned about face
and I wrote, a poet wrote
let me ask you...
Did you even read the message at all?
Was there a call about an artist putting poetry graffiti on the wall?
See I'll gladly take the charge
but I needed this idea to come to life
so I had to set it off
So charge me
charge me, for my free speech
charge me, for indecency on private property
Charge me, but before you do
Read my piece, So I can be released
and later be free.......
