The Ugly Show

poetryToday I’m posting a piece I came across a while back but never got around to adding it to the site. It touches on the infamous Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged the Gulf Coast and, more notably, the city of New Orleans. I figured since I, and a lot of my friends and family, were in New Orleans when this tragedy occurred now is as good of a time as any. It is entitled The Ugly Show and comes from Black Ice, a Philadelphia poet with an epic name to say the least. (Quick shot out to my extended family from Philly…… know I got y’all!)

Now this poem may not be for everyone and is definitely not for the faint of heart. But seeing as how I and several people I know and love went through this storm and so much after it had passed, this is just one way I can try to let them and many others know that the storm may have left, but your stories & pain will never be forgotten.

Especially with me.
