 Old people speak of death frequently now… Quincy Troupe from Skulls Along the River

This Ol’ Building (Negro Spiritual)

There's a leak in this ol' building 

And my soul has got to move

My soul has got to move

Yeah my soul has got to move

 There's a leak in this ol' building 

And my soul has got to move

To a building not made by hands

FOUR X a.k.a. This Damn World

To have a place to live I’ve recreated the universe

I’m writing an afterlife in case

The dominant culture over there thinks of me as an object  

Without poetry fiction and music I’d settle for this damn world 

Which makes me sweat beg and lie for food shelter and love
