Howdy Ya'll

Hillbilly Love Poem

Susie Lee done fell in love
She planned to marry Joe
She was so happy 'bout it all
She told her Pappy so.
Pappy told her, Susie gal
You'll have to find another
I'd just as soon yo Ma don't know
But Joe is yo half brother.
So Susie put aside her Joe
And planned to marry Will,
But after telling Pappy this
He said There's trouble still.
You can't marry Will, my gal,
And please don't tell yo Mother
But Will and Joe and several mo
I know is yo half brother.
But Mama knew, and said my child,
Just do what makes ya happy
Marry Will or marry Joe,
You ain't no kin to Pappy.

I had to share this poem. I'm doing research for my newest writing venture and I'm finding hilarious stuff. Tis' the reason for my lack of posts. I mean how could I not post about the Oscars, when for the first time in my ENTIRE life I watched the ENTIRE show.

Ellen was great, and....... "We're movin' on up!" all the lovely folks of color nominated and winning...Kudos to my peoples for doing the damn thing and Kudos to yo' people for recognizing and being gracious enough to do the right thing...damn it's about time. It's not like we haven't BEEN doing the damn thing.... Denzel Washington(Malcolm X), Angela Bassett (What's love got to do with it) and so on and so forth and shoobee doobee doobee. I'm still on the fence about Halle Berry's Oscar. I mean come on...The voters were clearly living out some kind of jungle fantasy........ Monster's Ball...gross. That sex scene was gross. POINT BLANK. GROSS. I can't say it enough. I'm not saying Halle Berry didn't deserve one but I am saying that sex scene was GROSS!!!! And offensive. Did I mention Gross? I mean give her one for Losing Isaiah or something but I get it, it's Hollywood...and just like the girls at Eastland Academy, were take the take the take them both and there you have....The Facts of Life!

And the documentary I worked on a bit, An Inconvenient Truth won one of those little gold men along with one of my favorite people out here in Cali (one of the producers of the documentary) very happy for her, she deserves it. Because, documentaries, yawn city. Yes they are great and serve a wonderful purpose, but you go and do some research and you'll quickly see....Research is exactly and search and search.

But again, I must jump and go back to my own research for my fiction flights of fancy. Peace!!!!
