Masking the Layers

One comment

When the covers come off and the reality is revealed.

Layers1Masking the Layers

Foundation masking
Nobody asking
A pound of flesh

A snip here
A tuck there
The visual lie
Her hidden agenda

Covering the wounds
Never changing the sheets
Masking the layers
Another way to cheat

When she took off her wig and
Revealed her salt & pepper popcorn fro
The reality was clear for all to see and know

But for only a few to know
Evan sat there embarrassed
And went with the flow

That’s life wherever you go
Enough money for the startup kit
With four more operations to go

“The best party ever”
Evan proudly shouted
“Who ordered the girls,
The food and the booze with this
Kind of lovin I know I can’t lose”

Evan’s getting it in, smiling
Ready to enjoy the moment
Isaiah’s waiting his turn but whispered
To Shelly, “I can’t go through wit it”.

Too late because the bet still stand
Close your mouth
Keep your cool
It’s all part of the plan

She was riding but hiding
What’s under her cap
Waiting for the right
Moment to spring forth

Her most undesired trap
She knew her hair could never grow
So long from finger nails to eye lashes
She plotted, did her dance and
Yelled, “Boo, they playin’ our song”

One shot to 4 shots of that Jamaican Rum,
Man these dudes don’t drink.
Evan says, “Yo, I’m bout to c@m”.
WTH was Evan thinking?
What just had happen and
Why are people laughin’ and clappin’

It’s Isaiah’s turn and she performs
Her twirl he can’t control it and
Begins to earl, throwing up all ova the floor
Pointing and staring at her bulge

Evan says “Isn’t she lovely
Isn’t she fly or is it a fact
That I’m that high

That’s Missy from 12th street right
“No”, whispered Shelly
“That’s Bro. Kwame
You played and made basketball plans

With the other night for your bash

The neighborhood Trans”


Heaven is at the foot of Mother…
