I’ll Take The Fried Chicken Mega Cluck Cluck Special Please

Deep_frying_chicken_upper_wing“Even when I get the fried chicken special of the day,
I have to dig into it like it’s filet mignon.”

that quote is from viola davis in her new york times write up.
funny part is she wasn’t talking about food either.
that quote gave an instant “a-ha” moment…

i have been showing up and giving my all in the fried chicken shack.
“welcome to cluck clucks…
can i take yo ordahs…”
tumblr_lzz3m1DXL51rpyhbbo1_500maybe i should be like everyone else?






…oh gawd no.
i have been accepting foolishness for a long time now.
chasing behind wolves who arent that into me.
being respectable to people who don’t respect me.
living paycheck to paycheck and wondering where my money goes.
biting my tongue in fear offended people.
…and for what?
knife in my back.
tossed to the side.
used and abused.
asses to kiss.
no respect.
“get that shit out my muthafuckin face”.

i deserve filet mignon.
i deserve 5 star.
i deserve vip.
…and i’m not talking about material.
as i walked around the city yesterday alone,
i came to the conclusion i’m not respected by people in my real life.
i give all this great advice,
always there with a shoulder or ear,
go to work and do a good job…
but when it comes to me,
i get thrown greasy plate and no napkins.

157409131i’m glad this is happening though.
if things were too perfect then it wouldn’t allow me to grow.
if i got what i wanted,
i wouldn’t fight so hard to want more out of life.
if fake people didn’t show their true colors,
i wouldn’t have the joy of making them bow down.

largei’m up now.
as someone said in my comments yesterday:

“i’m a vic-tor not a vic-tim”

this as the “gold digga” system wide bitch fix.
say goodbye to the chicken shack.

  1. If I had connects I would help you out big time. You sound like a hard working trust worthy person. But as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had to deal with snakes in the music industry and now I’m back at square one. I understand how you feel. Seems like no one cares. Everyone is off in their own little world until they need something from me. And my dumb ass always tries so hard to be what I think they want me to be or just do the right thing. You’re right. Being that way doesn’t get you far. It’s best to just not give any fucks like everyone else. I do that for like a week and then slip back into my old emotional self. I do like the fact that I get to experience the world this way. You get to see everyone’s true colors.

    That’s also why I like being a black man. I couldn’t imagine living in the privileged world that white people do. I have to take a step back sometimes when I hear their comments about certain things. I love the fact that I can see the world for what it truly is. I also like the fact that I’m a gay man. Tho I’ve struggled with it as a youngin and still do every now and then. If I was straight, I’d be missing out on so much sexual pleasures that go unexplored by many men in life. They don’t know what they’re missing. Anyways, I’m going off on a tangent again so I digress.

    1. You’re mostly right. However, you have to give a fuck because it shows that you care. Not giving a fuck will only result you in you living recklessly and making irrational decisions, which may end up leading you on a path to nowhere. You have to trust somebody eventually because we can’t make it on our own, and that is something everyone needs to realize, but some fail to. It’s a shame because there is always somebody who has the power to humble you quickly. People like K Michelle constantly disrespects her fans, but if no one is buying her albums, getting tickets for her shows, she would have to resort to a basic 9 to 5 like the regular folks. The point is, everybody needs somebody.

      1. ^thia does make sense.
        i only wanted to treat those who give me nasty treatment the business.
        people that are good to me will get the same kindness.
        I give a fuck about people who give a fuck about me.

  2. It’s tempting to treat people the same no good ways as they treat you or react badly to situations that go awry. Doing what is right shall come easy when you realize that the world has enough no good people, and that bad things do occur. Sooner or later in the end, good will always prevail.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
