Your Revolution

by - 20:25

Inspired by Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”


"your revolution will not happen between these thighs
your revolution will not happen between these thighs
the real revolution
ain’t about booty size
the Versaces you buys
or the Lexus you drives
and though we’ve lost Biggie Smalls
your Notorious revolution
will never allow you to lace no lyrical douche in my bush
your revolution will not be you killing me softly with Fugees
your revolution won’t knock me up and produce li’l future MCs
because that revolution will not happen between these thighs
your revolution
will not find me in the
backseat of Jeep with LL
hard as hell
doin’ it & doin’ it & doin’ it well
your revolution will not be you
smackin’ it up, flippin’ it, or rubbin’ it down
nor will it take you downtown or humpin’ around
because that revolution will not happen between these thighs
your revolution will not have me singing
ain’t no nigger like the one I got
your revolution will not be you
sending me for no VD shot
your revolution will not involve me feeling your nature rise
or helping you fantasize
because that revolution will not happen between these thighs
and no, my Jamaican brother, your revolution
will not make me feel boombastic and really fantastic
have you groping in the dark for that rubber wrapped in plastic
your revolution will not be me tossing my weave
making believe I’m some caviar-eating, ghetto mafia clown
or me givin’ up my behind just so I can get signed
have someone else write my rhymes?
I’m Sarah Jones, not Foxy Brown
your revolution makes me wonder, where could we go
if we could drop the empty pursuit of props and the ego
revolt back to our Roots, use a little Common sense on a Quest
to make love De La Soul, no pretense … but
your revolution will not be you flexing your sex and status
to express what you “feel”
your revolution will not happen between these thighs
will not happen between these thighs
will not be you shaking and me faking between these thighs
because the revolution, when it finally comes, is gon’ be real!"
Sarah Jones

This poem is based on the propensity of men trying to change the present society in their favour. It covers several aspects, from sexual relations, shows off male and female behaviour to financial status.
First, the "so wanted" man revolution won't happen to her because she is too determined and independent, then a real revolution it's not about body shape and material things. Trying to woo a woman with rap world's accomplishments is out of the question. Even though there are big names in the rap industries that's not her dream man or dream life, and she will not sacrifice her conscience for a couple minutes of fame. She is not willing to do sexual activities just please a man regardless his social status. Being a man takes more than that, so she is not going to give them value if they don't mean anything to her.
She worries about the future and advises people to be more humble and more down to heart in order to progress. There is a comparison between faking an orgasm and the revolution man are hoping for, and it is not going to happen because the actual revolution is going to be real.
