A dream deferred

A dream deferred


Good morning, daddy!
Ain't you heard
The boogie-woogie rumble
Of a dream deferred?

Listen closely:
You'll hear their feet
Beating out and beating out a --

You think
It's a happy beat?

Listen to it closely:
Ain't you heard
something underneath
like a --

What did I say? 

I'm happy!
Take it away!

Hey, pop!

    Sooner or later this site might be declared to be breaking south/african law!

    Oh, I don't think its a 'dream deferred' anymore; its more of a nightmare.

    @ Lebogang:

    "Heard about the guy who fell off a skyscraper? On his way down past each floor, he kept saying to reassure himself: So far so good... so far so good... so far so good. How you fall doesn't matter. It's how you land!"

    from the movie "La haine" directed by Mathieu Kassovitz

    "What happens to a dream deferred?

    Does it dry up
    like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore—
    And then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over—
    like a syrupy sweet?

    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.

    Or does it explode?"
