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

If you be my Lucious, I will be your Cookie

Awww sookie, sookie! 




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!
