"Arrakis runs on Duncan" ~Imani McCalmon

I know My generation
can be amazing, trail blazing
flags waving, faces bright and brazen
Saying I want to go to tomorrowland
Let me Blaze through the promised land
Than let me take my lover’s hand

I know my generation
Generators and instigators
Who lit the fires in the dark
Because we turned out the lights
Even in oceans of tears we break faces with pearls
Like Saturday morning cartoons
Baked like Allen every East End afternoon
Rising o his plum of Mary Jane Watson
Higher than Peter Parker diving
From an Empirical Statement building on his basic facts
Yet failing to keep it up
So Babylon falls like Skrillex
Oh, My generation; Like Rufio’s lost boys
Yet, free and forever

The author's comments:
This poem came to me all at once really, It was inspired in some form by Dante Basco's "Nikki", jut because of the slick and cool attitude found in his voice. I tried to echo that same excitement, and channel the sound of youth's electric howl. Enjoy.
