Oy PaperBoi

AtlantaGood morning o’ neighbor, dear WordPress kin,
I’m back on the subject of PaperBoi again.

I like him and his cousin Earnie, his friends Darius and Tracey too.
I’m into exploiting the schemes, their dreams and the things that they go through

because the episodes are packed with potential to teach someone a lesson.
The fact that PaperBoi didn’t die in episode 9 was a miraculous blessin.’

Did you see it?
The luck of PaperBoi; I wouldn’t want to be it.

I love the show and the cast of members
who pull me back into the south and its consequences…I remember.

Season 2, episode 8 of the ATLANTA series
PaperBoi went to get a pedicure and ended up in trees.

A forested scene showed up when he decided to walk home from the salon.
It was a half-thought-out idea because he needed to get his ‘clear mind‘ on.

In route, he ran into 3 dudes on a cruise who attempted to beat him black and blue.
It’s true and PaperBoi was solid on delivering those 1’s and 2’s.

Via his handy-work, a can of whip-ass was unleashed
and that’s what lead him to run through the trees.

After fighting off the 3 dudes including one firing a gun
an immediate run through the forest seemed to be safer fun

as well as a reasonably good effort to get away from them.
PaperBoi’s life is full of circumstantial hem.

With a shiner on his upper cheek and blood in his mouth
he was still his even-keeled self, with no time to wince or pout.

As he submerged himself into the forests’ fist
he met a homeless man who wasn’t sure if he’d let him live.

The homeless man had mental health issues and such,
it appeared he was in the thick creating deer guts.

Yes. He had a box-cutter and was suffering a mentally-ill head;
he was slicing deer at the bowels and the deer would drop dead.

Upon discovering PaperBoi in the woods, lip bleeding, and cheek cut –
the homeless man started to stalk PaperBoi – calling him “deer guts.”

The man was nuts. PaperBoi asked the homeless man to ‘please not follow!’,
the homeless man put the box-cutter to PB’s throat; making it hard to swallow.

It was some truly hairy stuff.
PaperBoi started to tear up – but he was not cut.

The homeless man didn’t relent but kept the box-cutter at his throat.
PaperBoi had just dodged a bullet in the street and this was like ‘whoa!’

So, he took a chance and fell backward – away from the blade at his throat.
Then he ran through the lush green as if he was a starved and grazing goat.

He did not eat the green, but he didn’t let the forest eat him either.
Had my dad’s life not been so comparably wild,  I’d call the writers outliers.

The show is crazy fantastic; though the stories still ring real.
I’ve got a thing for PaperBoi and Donald Glover’s ATLANTA appeal.

That was episode 8, don’t get me started on episode 9,
but PB, Darius, Earnie, and Tracy wandered across a culture line.

A frat pajama party that PaperBoi was due to perform
lead him to a frat house with a Confederate flag, major weed, and little alarm.

Did you happen to see the show?
It’s about trees, again – but the one folks blow.

Oy PaperBoi and cousin Earnie! It’s a pleasure for me to dig your style,
I’m Qui
Missing the south but no reason to pout, for your series, is relatively wild!

LIFE with a Side of Bacon and Waffles

Three Saturdays ago, I began my morning at The Waffle House on University and the 101. The food was good, however, the company inside of the establishment is always a subject to keep your eye on. My last visit was around 10:30 am, I ordered the ALL STAR special: a waffle, bacon, eggs, and grits. Like I said, it was good. I tipped well, but not as heavy as I usually do, because they were a bit busy and slacking on the swiftness of service. Still, the food was good. In fact, that’s why I keep going back; food consistency.

Last weekend James Shaw, Jr. had a hankering for a waffle and ended up at a Nashville Waffle House franchise. All was well until a half-naked gunman comes in shooting. James was quick on his feet and fled to the restroom. The gunman kills four people and the gunfire stops. James sprints from the restroom and bum rushes the gunman – wrestling his gun away from him. James tosses the gun behind the counter and continued in a life-struggle until the half-naked man squirmed out of James’ grasps and ran. He is currently on the lam and James is being hailed a hero. He’s only 29-years old but embodied the courage of an entire police force since that’s what it normally takes to bring down a gunman whose taken public civilians hostage.

Four lives were lost and at the speed at which the half-naked man was shooting, it would have indeed been more had James not taken him down. James is without a doubt the ALL STAR of the Waffle House and the Nashville community today. Nothing tastes as good as life. James Shaw, Jr. preserved many this weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited
to hear good news and be able to cite it.

I’ve been eating breakfast at home – no butter, bread or rice.
I’m conscious of my health and it’s preserving my life.

23-year olds Rashon Nelson, left, and Donte Robinson, right are being arrested. The man in the silver sleeveless bomber jacket is the friend that they were waiting on.

The Waffle House is cool if you want a good breakfast of such.
Thank God a gunman didn’t decide that he’d shoot up a Starbucks.

 

Can you imagine how our lives would have been further tested,
had just moments prior James Shaw, Jr. been arrested?

Last weekend at a Starbucks in Philly
2-black men were arrested and the manager looks silly.

The black men were arrested for waiting on a friend who was white;
he arrived as they were being handcuffed and lead off of the site.

How could this be legal, civil or constitutionally right?
Had James Shaw, Jr. been arrested – how many more would have died?

We need to think about it America. This is who we are.
We are patrons of a Waffle House and James is the All Star.

We all want to live a good life, laugh and be a dynamic lover.
Perhaps we all need to take a look at who we call sisters and brothers.

Breakfast has no race
and evil almost closed down that place.

Why the limitations? Life is a gift and it shouldn’t be randomly taken.

Drizzling morning wisdom atop of LIFE’s Waffles and Bacon.

Two’s Day

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on April 18, 2018 at 3:00 am

fist-bump-free-stockAnother glorious morning and we are up early to shape the day.
I call it Two’s Day because I like wordplay. I’m obnoxious; I like to play.

But not too much, a childish touch; I adore my playtime with you.
#1. My heart is saddened as the day is dampened by bidding Barbara Bush adieu.

A strong woman with life accomplishments that many of us may never achieve.
She and her beau were 73-years hitched, yo! Can you monogamously conceive?

If you woke up this morning, thank God for life, love, and the ability to read.
I know that you kneeled upon waking up to thank Him for your safe sleep.

Right? Well, that’s what’s up.
Now give God some praise and give me a fist bump.

I could stand for a hug, as well. Human contact is a fundamental need,
as is love, air, and food. Spiritually & physically to live, we must eat.

#2. Speaking of “eat,” I haven’t been eating well. I am brave and stand to face it:
Eating food is difficult to anyone who is new to wearing braces.

I am indeed new.
It’s Day 3 and I’m still having probs with “the chew.

Pray for a sister, too – right after you bless that meal. 🙂
I’m Qui
Smiling silver, still a giver of time for our united appeal.

Let go of all the dead-weight and hop onto “the heal.”
