Sometimes the things that pop into my head, though true, are better left unwritten.

Is she the one who wrote...”Kill my landlord....Kill my landlord....C-I-L-L my landlord”?

Someone who was called a poet. You wouldn’t have gotten that impression if you read anything by her.

Former poet laureate of the US and liberal activist. Highly celebrated by the Left.

Unfortunately, I won’t have time to mourn today: must put air in the tires, floss my teeth and go to the drycleaners.

You’ll know in 30 years when you’re enduring her poetry on the 30th annual Maya Angelou Day: the most solemn day in the USSA.

The liberal media and the WH will canonize her a saint by the end of the day. May God have mercy on her soul.

I won’t necessarily say good riddance, but it is evident that this woman had zero talent for writing poetry.

........And I can count on the fact that someone else will come along and write what I’m thinking.

Moving along will not be very easy though. Every third school in your town will be named Maya Angelou School for Diversity.

Saw this quote from her posted on Twitter:

“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.”

Ummm. What?

A bad poetry tribute to Maya Angelou:

Gone from us Maya, we all haz a sad
You were so old with poems so bad
You wrote what you felt which sadly was poo
We miss you already oh my Angelou.

Back in ‘92-’93, I worked with a white, middle-class, college educated woman in her early 20s who described Angelou as her favorite poet. I should’ve regarded that as a portent.

Yep no doubt. Orca is one of her closet friends, so no doubt there will be a movie about her.

She was a poet and writer, if I recall correctly. She did a poem at Clinton’s inauguration, if I recall correctly. So she would be a liberal favorite.

Trayvon
by Maya Angeloo

I sing of thee Trayvon
Lamented burnt umber crayon
Shoud of stayed at home
and got your lay-on
But you heard the siren song of wet grass
and headed for Seven Elevon.

Zimmerman the triggerman
Big game hunter lay in wait
White hispanic in a panic
Rubberheaded, held your fate.

By punching him, you tried to reason
You cant of known - was black-boy season
Stand your ground, ground and pound,
Frito Bandito shot you down.

Nothing you can say will be significant compared to facing her Creator.

Even if she is saved, she will be held to account, perfectly, for every word (as will we all).
