Can I find a Black Man, to give me what I want?
A white picket fence with red roses
roses in the garden, aligned with the fence.
Give me that big house
a porch with a swing set
somewhere out in the country
right next to my white neighbor's house?
Can I find a Black Man, do like my daddy did,
open the car door on my side
give me his hand like my daddy did my mother?
Would my Black Man drive a nice car
and I would drive one too
instead of you leaving me home
and go out.
we both would have cars.
Can I find a Black Man who owns his own company,
work hard for a living.
or one that never works
and I have to take care of the family
Can I find a Black Man who would be romantic
or one that thinks he has to
be hard, use curse words
in order for me to understand him.
Can we go on trips
were we would fall in love over and over again
eat in romantic restaurants
or would you only do take-outs.?
Can I find a Black Man make
to make sweet passionate love to me
all night, satisfy my cravings
do me like this, do me like that
till I screamed in ecstasy
from being satisfied,
or would I have to beg
for a little bit of your time.
Being Spiritual would be alright too
if you mind.
Can I find a Black Man,
who understands, all ladies want
to be treated and spoken to,
like the Queens we are
Do you think, I've been reading to many books?
