I'm offering a lot of money for a poor black kid.
I give you food and clothes . . .
A southern plantation type structure.
cars and houses . . .
They will take whatever conditions I give them.
Who gives it to you? Who makes the game?
Look at those beautiful black bodies.
Do I make the game or do you make the game?
Donald Sterling is the owner of the L.A. Clippers. He was recently caught on audiotape making extremely offensive racist remarks. The non-italicized lines of my poem are quotes from the audiotape (I've altered the pronouns from "them / they" to "you."). With the exception of the "southern plantation" line (that was former General Manager Elgin Baylor describing Sterling's vision for the Clippers organization), all of the italicized lines are older Sterling quotes. Hey, NBA; What does it take for you to get rid of this guy?
As to who makes the game . . . well, I can't resist . . .
Eighteen seconds and down.
Roll the shoulder
loose and liquid.
at the arc.
Sure hands . . .
And, all of the above blathering is for Helen's prompt at Real Toads
