Rhetorically Speaking Am I a ho Because I love Black men Because I love to love them Whether I have one to 50 Is it a bad thing If I've loved them wholly In a certain space and time Am I a ho Because my hips move With the rhythm That rocks the worlds Changes grown men Into sleeping babies Let me know So that I'll point the next brotha To a narrow-hipped, stiff walkin' Asian or white woman I have a hard time accepting the label Because I choose my lovers carefully Brothas needing love A few with the rare ability To love me Sometimes I choose not to choose at all Tell me Am I a ho Because I love myself and am free To love others I want to know Why should I keep all this good pussy To myself
