I think about Howard Griffith ” know your place —
I think about on some levels since being displaced to Skid Row
I escaped the bondage of capitalistic America and corporate prostitution
While losing my programmed mind of knowing my place in the Stepford wife and June Cleaver syndrome I gained my militant Angela Davis will
Yet the bondage is still prevalent and caught up in the Kim Kardashian hype .
Sadly, the bondage exists even in the movement …..
So, I no longer live in a million dollar neighborhood . Instead in a dilapidated SRO that I pay $56 a month for.
I used to go to work and considered myself privileged with my own office and name plaque on my door .
I now consider myself free and call my office the streets.
