The clearest description I have managed so far about my blog is that it is not about cats. In general, I find predators pretty predictable while prey on the other-hand, because they live in universes of anxiety, develop more textured personalities. I also have as a writer a deft hand when it comes to making matters worse, so of course , the already panicky are ready made for me. I will try to grow this blog into an assortment of laughs, because that is what my life has mostly taught me to do. I will use the famous people I have known to get your attention and then tell you small but many times wonderful things about them. I will never name the ones I say ugly things about but I hope you will guess who they are.
You Own Me
by Regis Boff
You needed a slave. And I was handy. To clear your conscious, about what you had done you let me die in your Civil War. I believed it was about me. I stepped up for the white World Wars because I thought I was free. I gave you willing millions. You dragged me from my home for Vietnam. Black skin goes so well with body bags. I am there for you when your kids do drugs. I go to prison for them. My children stay home alone, and you argue about other people’s children crying on TV. So here I am, Not your slave now your criminal. With you, for you still belonging to you. You own me.
