Throwing Papayas at Tobias – BLACK LIGHTNING

Episode 11 took-out Reverend Pinky and Jade’s boyfriend, Khalil.
It had an emotional, roller coaster feel.

Episode 12 brought my girl Perenna (portrayed by Erika Alexander) back in.
Her metaphysics are strong like ethanol gin.

Hm. Let’s see… Where do I begin?

Thunder went into the trap and duly kicked the ass
of Black Bird & his crew – and then she took their cash.

For two reasons – if you’re inclined to ask:

1) for Black Bird putting his hands on his gal
2) to pay for Khalil’s funeral; because she’s a pal.

But stealing Black Bird’s money didn’t come without a price,
La Thunder chica almost lost her life.

Black Bird’s boys put it on her; they weren’t for that jive.
One of them mased her face and vulnerable became her life.

Though she healed up quickly and remains strong,
I’m digging her existence and hopes she goes long.

Dear Black Lightning:
Your new suit is exciting.

The series’ fresh content yields praise to the writers and to the producers.
Peep the above-the-line cast; magic is made by reel juicers.

At the conclusion of the episode we witnessed Khalil laid into the ground;
we also saw Tobias planning to live as Jade plans to take him down.

I wish I had a whole bag of rotten papayas,
I would throw them all at Black Lightning’s Tobias.

But when you really think about it, he is the sum of awesome character development.

Digging Black Lightning TV; thus, it’s my pleasure to vent.

Way to nail a role Marvin “Krondon” Jones 3.
I enjoy your work on the BLACK LIGHTNING series.

Oy PaperBoi

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 30, 2018 at 8:15 am

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!

What the CANE – Queen Sugar

In Communication, Griot, TV Shows on July 21, 2017 at 6:16 am

Did you see the episode 6 of Queen Sugar a couple of days ago?
The family dinner that closed the show was pretty hard to throat.

Post their fathers headstone memorial everyone came back to the house,
They sat down at the table before the dine to commune for a while
and ooo child

let me tell you what went down then:
Aunt Vi and Hollywood witnessed frayed ends.

Ralph Angel (RA) is the youngest and only Bordelon male child
he found a letter addressed to him from their father after he died

Ernest Bordelon left the lot of his farm to his son Ralph Angel to passed down to Blue.

Initially he shared the letter with Aunt Vi
And her surmise: the letter could ruin their lives 

Because big sis Charlie has invested big dough – she’s the farms financial motor.
Their fathers last days were spent cleaning toilets, learned (middle sis), Nova.

Charlie was blindsided by all and asked the fam to ‘hold the phone,’
And clarified that the letter Ernest wrote gave the farm to RA, alone!?

RA said, “Yeah. Y’all can read it for yourself.
Both his sisters got up – but no for the mail


Nova and Charlie both started heading for the door.
I got the impression they were done with the “unity” score.

Aunt Vi, Hollywood and Darla sat at the table in silence…
I wasn’t talking either. I was busy writing this. 📝

What the Cane is going on with the fam?
The farm belongs to Ralph Angel. The ladies are like ‘damn.’
What now?

Episode 6 is titled: Line Of Our Elders and rightfully so.
We are passed down and inherit our ancestors beloved whoas.

The content of this series is sweet, sticky and thick.
I’m Qui
A candy lover though eating too much Cane can make you sick.

The family vibe
is mud and Ernests’ letter is the stick.
