A Poem for Chris Brown


From One Virginian to Another

You sir, have been dipped in asshole sauce
and baked to an embarrassing glaze.

You sir, wrapped in tabloid newsprint,
are stinking up the kitchen with your fishiness.

You Chris, will be forever remembered
as the singer who gave Virginia-

the great confederate state of racism and 6 inch waves-
a bad name.
