Snob Shoppe Fraternity - MASTERS OF PENMANSHIP - Detroit, MI
Snob Shoppe Fraternity  - Renaissance Society
 M P                   of
The Masters of Penmanship is the lyrically skilled, word-smith wizards on the Snob Shoppe's stage menu presenting a talented collection of style, literature and showmanship. Poetry and performance is art, a combination of life's episodes using imagination, fantasy, emotion and many other tools of one's self to express their feelings and views through the craft of poetry. Pens, pencils and microphones are delicate instruments used by lyrical-designers to build some of the worlds most treasurable masterpieces of ink-linked bridges across a field of paper. I consider myself, along with others that share the same interest in this craft, a Master of Penmanship.
My Favorite Letter: Q | My Favorite Number: 9
Q - has a bar breaking it's circle making a doorway, this doorway is an entrance into a private space and also an exit into an open area. This circular fence provides a home-base and a freedom of choice to travel back and forth between two places.
9 - is the second one digit number that has a twin within itself, that's opposite by three less than itself and when turned a half-turn clockwise or counter clockwise becomes a six. This defining changefulness, mood-swing, like yes and no, both
are answers of response (in common), yet differ to favor of.
Nine is the numerical synonym and antonym; one in the same, yet opposite.
Second-best and runner-up to Ten which is used as a symbol of perfection or
best of, but it's a two digit number. With that being said Nine is the best in it's
class, remember he's a one digit number out ranking the infamous #1 which is
also used as a bar of perfection or excellence and yet it takes nine number one's
to amount to him, the often over-looked and quiet champion # 9.

This body is a book and love story
open up your arms and hug it for me
You are that girl and I'm that guy
we don't need wings for us to fly.
Endless this beat, rhythm and blues
we make good music, let us rock.
Exploding with emotions, we can't loose
we got the bomb, let it drop...... BOOM!

I am one,
the one and only son,
the middle of three siblings
Alfa male second to none.
Accompanied by two
one older and one younger
my guardian angels
through and through
one of lightning and one of thunder.
2nd Best of a Three-Best Set
made up of blood and love
this as rich as it gets.
This over-protection
provided me goods
served as my guiding light
as I traveled through deep woods
and I appreciate this armor,
sisterly shields that surround me
and the arrows of close-knit
that will pierce through my enemy.
I am blessed as 2nd Best
my needs are met
to pass any test
this be my truth and spoken word
of 1st born Peanut, 3rd born Bird.

Denim City themes
loose-fit access scenes
boot-leg and straight leg
daisy-dukes; mean-ass-jeans.
Zip-ups and button-ups
which do you prefer?
Doctor Denim prescribe some rhythm
for this blue-jean fever.
I like my jeans
with pockets that are green
so when I walk, money talk$
to finance my dreams
Always in style
Denim City can't lose
white or blue collar
a steady income is good news.
Rather at work or at play
any occasion night or day
Denim has a rhythm
and plenty shit to say.

I've been looking for my prince to come..
I've been searching for the white picket fence..
I've been doing everything you've said would make my mate come..
I've been praying that he would, should and could come quick..
I've been thinking that a man would complete me...
I've been thinking love and sex go hand in hand...
I've been going about this all wrong now I see...
To Truly be loved I must start by first loving me!!

                                                                               - Urban Angel -
My prince has found me and I HE,
My fence is not white it's invisible and you can't SEE.
My soul mate I tried not to want or NEED.
It took 20 yrs. but there was always that SEED.
He doesn't complete me, GOD made me WHOLE.
He is here to help fill my SOUL.
Friendship came first, love soon after the sex took AWHILE.
I didn't want to miss out on his wonderful SMILE.
When the sex is gone there is just ME.
Loving the other half of life's love for ME.

                                                                 - Queen Of The Hill -
I can't be a prince for I'm already a king
What I value in life are the simple things.
White picket fences are nice to be seen
What's needed in my kingdom is the touch of a queen.
A royal highness with to spend the rest of my days
Finding her pearls she's my oyster I open in many ways.
What I give can't be found at the dollar store
My love is priceless and too special to ignore.
I want you to love you first and foremost
Then let's become one in front of the father, son and holy ghost.

What Age, Love And Life Has Taught Me
Is that forever has a face
Three-Fifteen, Nineteen-Ninety-Three
sure enough, forever has a taste.
Yodie Prince has built his white picket fence
around his kingdom of joy a.k.a. Chavon Denise
ever the prince, with such splendid essence
a constant joy she so employ
My wife and queen Chavon Denise.
Age Has Taught Me respect and love
and Love Has Taught Me
to mix my blood,
so much that it began to flood,
into What Life Has Taught Me
to plant my name,
inside my wife; creating new life
extending my name.
All the above has taught me
marriage is royal fleece
and that forever has a face
her name, Chavon Denise.
Age Has Taught Me to teach myself
all my accomplishments and failures
help define thyself.
Experience is lesson,
The Book of Life, blessings in text
this knowledge, a fruitful truth
apples to you from a "teachers pet".
Maturity is a bridge;
an expansion from house to mansion
crossing over the vast fields of adolescence
discovering new feelings enriching youth and essence.

Spirit of Style #6:
I confidence
How the winners got that way
SURE, YOU WANT her--as in, right now, yeah, in the produce section. but, key point: You don't need her. Kids need their mothers. She's not your mother. And even if this particular sweetness doesn't come to pass behind the bananas, something else urgent will, soon. Style knows life is bursting with opportunity, that there's plenty to go around. Sure, you want this deal. And you'll work to get it. But guess what? Style doesn't need this particular deal. There's always another one. Something even better, perhaps. Confidence is born of faith.

I have been cooking you meals
raising your kids
cleaning your house
stroking your ego
Don't get it twisted
I have also been rubbing you down
swallowing you whole
taking you in
and screaming your name
but don't get it twisted
a lady I'll always be
having my man's back
making my house run smooth
putting my family first
but don't get it twisted
I'm the one your momma groomed you for
I'm the one your daddy adores
I'm the one your brother can't get enough of
I'm the one your sister is
Don't get it twisted
The black woman can still bring it
we are what others strive to be
it has never been easy
but I am a black woman god I thank thee
Don't get it twisted so be a black man and come to me!
                                                       - Don't Get It Twisted -
                                                           - Urban Angel -
Queen and every man's dream
sister-soul, black man's gold
enrich my goals and self-esteem.
Yes! let's get it twisted
and design a unique vine
that will strengthen over the ages
providing guide lines for youth to climb.
So it is said, let it be done
man and woman,
black love one-on-one.
Soulful unity, cultural identity
two spirits bleed into one entity.
Again! let it be twisted
and design a unique vine
that will strengthen over the ages
providing guide lines for youth to climb.
Let's plant a family-tree,
let's make history
and water this seed with knowledge,
be fruitful with this gift.
Inter-lock full circles
brain-storms bring forth tornadoes,
successful generations, a legacy set adrift.
