How Long Will This Bullshit Go On? An Ode To Richard Pryor - Poem by Steven Taylor

Richard was a vessel, an artist that was black,
In a sea of white suppression, that he carried on his deck, …
He made us laugh so hard that we were all reduced to tears,
His message helped us overcome our anger and our fears.

Rich became a voice that we deep down did all desire;
Fearlessly he broached topics that set our souls on fire.
From his first appearance on TV, to his albums and his roles, ..
He steadfastly endured and made the truth part of his goals.

Although his life was mired in addiction and excess,
His heart was filled with love that he did openly express.
His legacy lives on in all our hearts and memories,
Because he knew that racism was not a joke, but a disease.

    What movie was it that Pryor starred in in his early years that he was preaching as they were passing the plate and he said, How long will this bullshit go on? (Report) Reply

    Whoa! You went deep for that one. We could mirror every word in this work. We all miss RP very much and for all of those mournful reasons.
    Your deepness is profound. (Report) Reply
