"A" is for Album
Sample page "A" from My First Graffiti Coloring Book
A is for Album, a collection of songs from a group,
a singer, an artist,
or a total-fake-make-a-star
in front of an underpaid troop.
This poem goes out to that Album that's first on your list
and to all the songs waiting to be written
that are somehow strangely missed.
"I" is for Injustice
Sample page "I" from My First Graffiti Coloring Book
I is for Injustice,
an awful thing that could happen to us all...
It happened to Ghandi,
and to Mandela and to Mumia Abu-Jamal.
It's been brought on many cultures
for the riches of their lands.
Everyday it's killing mother earth,
and all this by our hands.
It's our shared job to try and stop this...
To fight back when we see
a person, place or animal
treated in ways they shouldn't be.
"O" is for Obama
Sample page "O" from My First Graffiti Coloring Book
O is for Barak Obama, our first black president
As for the 43rd that came before him
Few cared much where he went
It's now a time for hope and change
with hard work and love let's rearrange
the pieces of the mess we made.
Cuz in every sense our country's broke-
and for many, just a violent joke.
It is time for a major cultural revoloution.
Hopefully Barak Obama
will be part of the solution.
"U" is for Underground
Sample page "U" from My First Graffiti Coloring Book
U is for the Underground
Where do you go to find the best?
How do you pay your dues?
and thereby pass the test?
What is so often imitated,
or properly appreciated?
The underground has acquifers of talent,
and prolific artists springs.
When will the man control the underground?
On the same day that lil' piggies grow wings.

"This book happens to be a finely crafted and beautifully illustrated piece of literature... in spite of being created by a graffiti artist."
"Painting something that defies the law of the land is good. Painting something that defies the law of the land and the law of gravity at the same time is ideal."
