Wide Open Wednesday

I had to think on it a while – pardon my expressive delay.

I enjoyed the CNN broadcast last night
and I think Sen. Warren did alright.

There were no hot topics that were cooled to the core,
and Sen. Warren did a great job at being honest and not sore.

How many times has someone said something hurtful to you with no witnesses nearby;
tho when the tale was retold, that person chose to lie and deny?

Good people say foul stuff all of the time,
and a good handshake is not an appropriate response in-kind.

At the end of the debate Sen. Warren approached Sen. Sanders (they’re friends but not the best),
so when he extended his hand to shake her’s she clasped her fingers and drew them into  her chest.

Sen. Warren began to speak; though no audio was shared with us.
Tom Steyer approached the two in talks and his face looked like “hush.”

You know?
Tom’s smile turned into an “Uh-oh.”

Who knows what Sen. Sanders and Warren were saying?
Men devaluing women isn’t a joke and Warren isn’t playing.

Why on Earth would she handshake with a friend to ‘his not being honest?
Instead she approached him civilly to broach the topic; friends be up-on-it.

Real friends lay it out on the line, on the floor and on the table.
Bernies ‘overlay for the underplay‘ was an unappreciated fable

that Elizabeth Warren wasn’t feeling. Folks need to learn:
A woman can be sharp and graceful, but if you cross her, there’ll be a burn.

Even during ‘said burn,’ Sen. Warren was lady-like; she did it right and to that, I salute.
Mika Brzezinski missed the mark on MORNING JOE;  Sen. Warren displayed her value.

She spoke according to her own truths.
No shade to Sen. Sanders, tho, I bid him adieu.

Other than that, the debate was a smooth ride,

Omg! Omg!
Whose The Birthday Girl? — I am she!

So the weekend is fast approaching
and the triple digit temps have been encroaching.

But that won’t stop me from birthday celebrating;
Gathering with friends, breaking ends and relating.

There’ll be some red wine, good conversation;
Chopping up future plans about game elevation.

There will be lots of good head in the house – because I cannot resist.
There will be GRIOT rhymes on a fly and on a dime – for I’m the GRIOT Ms.

This Birthday Weekend will find me flawless and fly.
Breaking ends with stylish friends, will surely get me by.

I’m sure to hit the MAC Counter and divvy funds to paint a prettier she.
I’m sure to stock up on shades of matte, because the lips are important to me.

I plan on cutting the rug – oh yes I do like to express through dance.
I plan on hitting as many scenes as I can, for celebrating is my entrance chance.

I’m a workaholic. I really don’t go out too much.
So this weekend will be spent, reaching out and keeping in touch.

I won’t be spending it on Twitter or by watching CNN.
I’m the birthday sheOoo Oui! Ooo Oui!
I will spend it on friends.

Not to be compared to Jennifer Aniston and that ivory casted show.
Because most of my friends have deep melanin skin & can conjur up an afro. 🙂

Not to exclude any of my white friends and fam, for they too are good to go.
They don’t deep tan, but in my heart they stand – and we’re working on their afro’s.
I just have more brown friends than whites – YO!

This Birthday Weekend will find me partying at home, at the mall, and letting loose at the pub,
I’m Qui
Approaching four decades of birthday celebrates — and looking forward to this one with love.

please believe.
