Cookie’s Chronicles – A Poem Inspired by the TV Show Empire

If you be my Lucious, I will be your Cookie

Awww sookie, sookie! 

 

Now

 

Listen to this

 

You can keep your money

Because our love is like an empire

 

Wait a minute

Here comes that liar

 

Boo Boo Kitty is in the mix

Cooking up schemes and butterscotch tricks

 

Looking like Halle Berry

But her soul is kind of scary

 

Can’t trust it

 

How can I breathe?

No air

 

Three kids

But I wasn’t there

 

I was locked up

Now I’m out & ya’ll got me f’d up

 

Drama over here

Hakeem way over there

 

My baby don’t love me

He’s getting his mothering elsewhere

 

Yoko Ono

Is his new bae

 

And as long as I have breath in my body,

there will be hell to pay

 

I didn’t raise no fools

But they sho aint acting smart

One is off his meds and jeopardizing this art

 

I can’t lose it all now

I paid too high a cost

I’m counting on you ‘Mal

Sing your heart out baby boy and be a boss!
