PART XLII

Grownupism!

1 Day, When I Grow Up!

So, I wuz sittin' an' stinkin' 'bout my wounded arm an' watery brain.

It's not like I had a car accident or sumthin', but it's on accounta the dragon-teecher an' her nite mare ideas.

Man, this woman alwayz has ideas, for other peeple to work on day in, day out!

She's alwayz claimin' she's educatin' us victim students an' wut's even wurse my perents agree!

But sumtimes you jes can't trust perents on this kinda subject, 'course teechers an' perents cum from the same seed!

A work all the time, sweat seed!

So, my opinion is, we kidz culd still learn sumthin' or other, without so much darn readin' an' writin' an' homework!

I have to stay up at nite till almos' 1 in the mornin' tryin' to finish all the drudgery stuff me an' my pardnurs are forced to do, in the name of education!

Man, what a drag!

Sum of my pardnurs say, it's not gonna make much difference wut we learn, 'cause there's no jobs to be had anyway!

Unless you call slavin' at food stands an' other stuff like that, jobs?!

'Course my perents say: "No matter what the future brings, you will have your education and no one can take that away from you!"

O yeah, maybe so an' then agin, maybe no!?

So, the dragon-teecher has lotsa water stories for us to write 'bout.

Her favorite water story is named Katrina.

Man, that's a nice name for such a yukky story!

I gotta admit, seein' those peeple on roofs an' streets an' great big halls for days an' days on T.V., wuz hart to look at!

Grandma sez, "How can this happen in the richest and one of the most developed countries in the world? Something is wrong, somewhere?"

The dragon sed, "Did you notice that almost all the people looked alike?"

An' than she asks us to explain, on paper of course, how this culd happen to so many of the same peeple?

Oh, oh, when it cums to paper writin', I'm off to grandma an' papa for sum R an' R, research an' releef!

So, I waited till after a mama delicious dinner, to git sum answers for my homework!

Maybe I shuld say, our homework?

'Cause I write, an' grandma an' papa cum up with the answers!

I'm a smart kid, I am, I am!

Papa an' grandma sed, "Son, you should read the history of the water people or at least look on the internet for an overview of the folks you are writing about and then you will find some answers, because what we and the world saw, was the result of the historical approach by the USA to the people you saw and Katrina brought all this treatment to light through the light of television and we saw the results which had been hidden from view for so long!"

Wow!

So, I ran to my room an' started harrasin' the internet!

Next day, I red my paper in class an' the dragon-teecher sed, "Thank you young man for your presentation of some of the often hidden and misunderstood dynamics of American and world history."

Man, I didn't know I had done all that!

But if the dragon is pleased, than I know my perents will be pleased an' I can breeth easy for another day or two or three!

Cool man cool!

All this brainwork is tirin', so I think I'll go to sleep an' git ready for another day of doin' this an' that an' wutever?

G'nite,

I luv you,

G'nite!

PART XLII

Erwachsensein!

Eines Tages, wenn ich erwachsen werde!

Also, ich war am Sitz'n und Stink'n üba mein' schmerzenden Arm und mein schwammiges Gehirn.

Nich' dass ich 'n Autounfall hatte oder sowas, sondern das geht auf das Konto der Drachenlehrerin und ihre Albtraumideen.

Mann, diese Frau hat ständig Einfälle, and're Leute arbeit'n zu lass'n, tagein und tagaus!

Sie behauptet imma, sie würde uns Schüleropfer unterricht'n, und was noch schlimmer is', meine Eltern sind damit einverstand'n!

Aber manchma' kannst du Eltern bei diesem Thema einfach nich' trau'n, 'türlich komm' Lehrer und Eltern aussem gleichen Samenkorn!

Einem Arbeite-die-ganze-Zeit-, Anstrengung-Samenkorn!

Also meine Meinung is', dass wir Kids auch noch irgendwie oder was and'res lern' könn', ohne so viel blödes Les'n und Schreib'n und Hausaufgaben!

Ich muss in der Nacht fast bis 1.00 Uhr morgens aufbleib'n, um zu vasuch'n, diesen ganzen Kerkerkram zu erledig'n, zu dem ich und meine Kumpels gezwung'n werd'n, im Namen der Ausbildung!

Mann, was 'ne Quälerei!

'N paar meiner Kumpels sag'n, es macht kein' Unterschied, was wir lern', weil's da sowieso keine Jobs zu hol'n gibt!

Es sei denn, du nennst die Schinderei in Imbissbuden und ähnliches Zeugs Jobs?!

'Türlich sag'n meine Eltern: „Egal, was die Zukunft bringt, du wirst eine Ausbildung haben, und die kann dir niemand nehmen!“

Na klar, vielleicht ja und dann wieder vielleicht auch nich'!?

Also die Drachenlehrerin hat 'ne Menge Wassergeschichten für uns, um drüba zu schreib'n.

Ihre Lieblingswassergeschichte heißt Katrina.

Mann das is' 'n schöner Name für so 'ne scheußliche Geschichte!

Ich muss zugeb'n, diese Menschen auf Dächern und Straßen und in großen Hallen Tag für Tag im Fernsehen zu seh'n, war nich' leicht zu ertrag'n!

Oma sagt: „Wie kann das im reichsten Land und einem der höchst entwickelten Länder der Welt geschehen? Irgendetwas stimmt nicht, irgendwo?“

Der Drachen sagte: „Ist euch aufgefallen, dass fast alle der Menschen ähnlich aussahen?“

Und dann wollte sie von uns, dass wir erklär'n, schriftlich natürlich, wie das so vielen gleichen Menschen passier'n konnte?

Oh, oh, wenn's ums Aufsatzschreib'n geht, dann geht's ab zu Oma und Papa für'n bißchen „R“ und „R“, Recherche und Rettung!

Also hab' ich bis nach Mamas leckerem Abendessen gewartet, um 'n paar Antworten für meine Hausaufgaben zu bekomm'!

Vielleicht sollte ich sag'n unsere Hausaufgaben?

Weil ich schreib' und Oma und Papa liefern die Antworten!

Ich bin ein schlaues Kerlchen, bin ich, bin ich!

Papa und Oma sagt'n: „Sohn, du solltest die Geschichte der vom Wasser betroffenen Menschen lesen oder wenigstens im Internet nachsehen, um einen Überblick über die Leute zu bekommen, über die du schreibst, und dann bekommst du ein paar Antworten, weil das, was wir und die Welt gesehen haben, das Resultat aus der Geschichte ist, die den Umgang der USA mit den Menschen wiedergibt, die du gesehen hast, und Katrina hat diese Umgehensweise durch das Fernsehen ans Licht gebracht und wir haben das Resultat gesehen, das dem Blick verborgen geblieben ist für so lange Zeit!“

Wow!

Also bin ich in mein Zimmer gerannt und durch's Internet gejagt!

Am nächsten Tag hab' ich mein' Aufsatz in der Klasse vorgeles'n und die Drachenlehrerin sagte: „Danke, junger Mann, für deine Präsentation über oft verborgene und missverstandene Vorgänge der amerikanischen und der Weltgeschichte.“

Mann, ich hatte keine Ahnung, dass ich das alles gemacht hab'!

Aber wenn der Drachen zufrieden is', dann weiß ich, dass meine Eltern auch zufrieden sein werd'n, und ich kann erst ma' Luft hol'n für einen Tag oder zwei oder drei!

Coole Sache das!

Diese ganze Hirnarbeit macht müde, also denk' ich, ich werd' schlaf'n geh'n und mich fit mach'n für den nächsten Tag, um dies oder das oder was auch immer zu tun?

'Nacht,

hab' euch lieb,

'Nacht!

Ode To Katrina

What would Fredrick Douglas have to say about it,

For he has seen Black folks fenced in.

Would Chrispus Attucks go for it,

put up with it, I don’t think so!

Harriet Tubman would surely start searchin’ for another place to bury the dead in a respectful manner and not left floatin’ face down in

The Muddy Mississippi flood waters.

All Sojourner Truth could do is turn her pained face to the heavens and moan,

please don’t tell me ‘cause I’m Black, that’s the reason why!?

The Buffalo soldiers would turn in their uniforms and ride off to the hills.

It would make even Jesus fall on his knees and weep.

Wake Nat Turner from his restless sleep.

Couldn’t you see Louis Armstrong walkin’ out of St. James Infirmary?

Where he had found his loved one stretched out on a long white table, then walk out into the streets and blow a blues that would make the full moon break down and cry.

W.E.B. Du Bois couldn’t do nothin’ but shake his head and say, tricked ya’ll again into believin’ a lie.

Marcus Garvey standin’ on the deck of his Black Star Line screamin’, if them Black Folks had of been white folks, help would have been there at first light.

I told ya’ll to depend on yourself, but no ya’ll won’t listen.

Cause when it’s Black folks dyin’ they always a day late and a dollar short.

Dafur, Ruanda, Burundi, Sudan, Gambia,

and New Orleans.

Caught ya’ll hangin’ out at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Down in New Orleans now you ain’t got no means.

John Coltrane’s horn would scream, where is A Love Supreme?

The Last Poets askin’, will the real Black people please stand up ‘cause This is Madness and all the other poets includin’ James Weldon Johnson, Lucy Terry, Phillis Wheatley, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Fenton Johnson, Claude McKay, Langston Hughes would turn to T. Bone Walker and ask: What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it fester like a sore?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or does it explode?

Nikki Giovanni, Lucy Smith, and even Walt Whitman would be at a lost for words, but Martin Luther King Jr. wouldn’t, his words would ring out and Mahalia Jackson would sing out, Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen, but now the whole world knows.

Thurgood Marshall and Paul Robeson would roll over in their graves.

Make even Ghandi lose his patience.

Rappers rappin’ out a flurry of ear burnin’ condemnation that would put us all to shame,

‘Cause if there’s a hell below we all gonna go,

You dig.

While African American soldiers fight on the front line,

Grand Ma was left stranded for four hot days on the burnin’ roof,

Uncle Joe served two tours of combat duty in Vietnam and sometimes they was fightin’ hand to hand, they even left him, face up in the gutter.

Is this what you dyin’ for Black soldier?

‘Cause if it is, this would have been your homecomin’. Would they, should they lay down there weapons and come on home, ‘cause that’s where they’re really needed.

That’s what Malcolm X would say.

National Guardsmen rifles pointin’ at your head,

They should have been feedin’ you instead.

Now you tell me. What would you say?

Anthony Earl Baggette, September 16, 2005
