Diva Philosophy by Demitri Tyler

Don’t need no man

Don’t need no hand


Do it myself

And can replace that between your legs


Don’t respect your stance

Can’t support your plan


Nigga you must be mad

I’m gonna sport these pants


My mama wore these pants

Her mother before her


And you bets believe

Going to pass them to my daughter


So she won’t trust your ass

Will disrespect your ass


Be quick to check your ass

Every last one of you


Sad . . .


Just like my home girl said

Black men be trifling


That’s why she’s single

And so am I


Cause there ain’t no good

Black men under this sky

About the Author

Writer, orator and activist, Demitri the poet with the Greek name that if translated would read “dedicated to, follower of Mother Earth,” is a rising voice out of San Francisco planting words of wisdom as if seeds beneath the flesh. His talents as a rapper formed his early years gaining him recognition as mc to watch in underground circles with performances at the Upper Room the cities hottest poetry/rap venue at the time as well as his activism in and around the community and state college campuses.

Family tragedy and the realities of life caused this man to hang up his music career and vanish for over ten years but it was time well spent for out of the darkness has emerged a streaking comet who has made the transition from rap to poetry look seamless.
