Hey, Maya how about you talk about how your stupid poems while creative don't do a damn thing for humanity. Isn't it always true stupid people can become wealthy and highly regarded by pretending to be artists.

You are an uncultured idiot if you don't know what her impacts have been. Whats the matter are you jealous you have to work for someone else?

What. It doesn't matter to me if I work for myself or someone else. Try to get over yourself. But I don't baffle people with bullshit to make a Buck. I'm sure you feel superior to the rest of us because you find meaning on the meaningless. See you tonight at the occupy Utica protest. I'm sure you'll be there so you can be down for another fake struggle. Bring a raincoat and some hand Sanitizer.

Here is my impression of the "brilliant" poetry by that black,commie hag:

" Fly, fly, black, rainbow-winged african princess! Fly to the heart of Mother Africa as you escape the shackles of this red, white and blue plantation !"

My version of this tripe:

" Still not enuff food stamps or "free" gum'ment dollars rendered by WORKING white slavemasters ? Too f*cking bad ! Go to Mother Africa and try it there !"

You CAN put polish on a turd, but what do you still have ?

Here is another of my original "Misanthropic Angelou-ian Masterpieces"

" Dump ! Squat and dump, oh, simian hag ! Foul the earth with fecal matter and fecal words ! At least 200 pounds ago, Oprah was almost cute...you, my african intruder can only fill commodes and minds of black youth with beliefs of...success ? A job well done ? Now, you ask, oh, where are the soft leaves to clean this massive poopie hole. Yes ! Yes ! I see rainbows too!"

HEEEYYY !!! Where's my PhD ? My writing is as good as that black, commie hag... Let me write a haiku:

"Black pregnant girl, welfare: angel. White man works, pays taxes: devil"

Too bad you literally have to jump to ridiculous assumptions to attack in an effort to distract from the fact that you're an ignorant retard who got embarrassed for being an ignorant uncultured bufoon. Now who needs to get over themselves? Can you say something without imaginary bullsiyt like "I'm a Occupy" whatever the fk that's supposed to mean in your ignorant fkn retarded yootican head? Typical pathetic scumbag loser comeback! Ya got anything better than that retard? Because "clever" isn't your talent.

Also retard, the fact that it doesn't matter to you if you work for yourself or not speaks volumes about your values. Keep talking you blithering leech ass.

*accomplished. I wouldn't want the judgmental knowitalls to start up. Lord knows they have to resort to extremes and imaginary evil so they can keep talking about things that are far above their little worlds.

Wow "tip" what does someone as Leach ass as myself say to someone as cultured as yourself. Maybe you would be better off watching the reading rainbow than Maya. As shackled as she is her rainbow includes some nice colors but not white maybe what you people should say is kill Whitey not I see rainbows. Isn't that what her poems are about not living in peace with others. Racism is racism even in a poem if you love Her work you must hate at least one group of your fellow Americans.

Listen here retard, Anytime you can accomplish what Maya has accomplished give us a call. And no "correction officer retard" doesn't count got it? Anyone ever nominate YOU for a Pulitzer prize retard? Nope! Anyone pay you to listen to your retarded rants? Nope! Anyone care what you say? Nope!

Get over YOURSELF loser you just made a total ignorant ass out of yourself. Enjoy! Now go catch some pro wrestling and let me know when you come up with something other than piss and feces for a days work!

You are all so gifted to find negativity in everything. Maybe MVCC should have you come on stage and speak your gospel. I wonder what type of impact that would have. That is, if you have the guts to stand in front of all and speak what you do here.

You are ignorant. You are hateful. You are what is wrong with this country.
