    Tic-Tac-Toe, X versus O

    O a cancer— X an answer

     

    Malcolm X Tic-Tac-Toe in the Age of…Austerity?

    by Raymond Nat Turner

     

    Vertical, diagonal, horizontal moves

    Of Malcolm X, martyr, giant, live on

    Like simple grid, paper and pencil games

    Of Noughts and Crosses, 3-in-a-row—

    Tic-Tac-Toe in the age of… Austerity

     

    X, like exciting, expanding, extending,

    X, like exalting, exemplary, example,

    Excelling, exceeding— revolutionary as

    Exponential, unlimited—far as you dare!

     

    O, as in hollow, phony, posture, nothing!

    O as diversion, like COINTELPRO, Psy-

    Op or false consciousness like blue-collar

    Workers masquerading as middle-class!

     

    3-in-a-row, X versus O

    Tic-Tac-Toe, X versus O

    Shrewd black buck dancer

    O a cancer— X an answer!

     

    Africom boots on the Congo

    Banksters bagging big dough

    Mother Africa their hoe

    A peculiar quid pro quo

    Slaves cheering status quo

    Their beer full of GMO—

    Madison Avenue mojo!

     

    3-in-a-row, X versus O

    Tic-Tac-Toe, X versus O

    Shrewd black buck dancer

    O a cancer— X an answer!

     

    Negroz go pianissimo

    Fiery X’s blocked by O,

    Rich white house Negro,

    Attorney Generalissimo

    Super of Guantanamo

    Teachers rise against O

    Working-class Tic-Tac-Toe!

     

    3-in-a-row, X versus O

    Tic-Tac-Toe, X versus O

    Shrewd black buck dancer

    O a cancer— X an answer!
