Langston Hughes


If you wanna blues feeling on a diddy bob doo

wop pre-rap toe tapped line, read Langston. How

many biographies does one man need. If a poet,

at least two. Hey you who dream of rivers, 

you who talk the talk about dreams deferred.

Where you get that mouth?


Wrap it up in rhythmical lines, make us sing

the lyric of the blues and the now and the then.

Add a dash of political spice, subtly, and take us
