Follow ‘Da’ Yellow Brick Road (Oh My)

Off to SEE a Wizard in Oz???


Dorothy ‘wit’ friend’s like us

Who needs ‘luv’?


A state of mutual trust

Shared tween only us

What ‘kinda’ friends


‘Dis’ love?

‘Wit’ friend’s like ‘deeze’

Again Dorothy

Who needs ‘luv’?

A lil’ bump on Ms. Dorothy’s head

‘An’ her

Storm clouds rise


strong winds they blow

She can’t withstand

Being thrown to and fro


She bails ship

From home


This kind of friend will leave you ‘fend’ in Kansas


‘Da’ Scarecrow bums along

‘Freeloadin’ Freddie

Can’t stand on his own

You guessed right

Pick a straw

Short man out

Get him fired up




Up, up, up

‘An’ away…

He’s out!

Mr. Tin Man

Old man down

Rusty round ‘da’ edge

In ‘da’ club

Ol’ G’s

Known to thee

Corrupting minors

Game so weak


You ‘da’ man

You ‘da’ man

Scraping oil from cans

Go sit down

‘An’ leave ‘da’ ‘youngins’ stand

Young men SEE visions

Old men

Dream dreams

Come out ‘dem’ clubs

‘Wit’ kids



Like your eighty-three

King of the jungle


‘Hidin’ behind a lil’ girl


Yeah ‘dat’ be you

‘Talkin’ trash

WRITING checks your hind can’t cash

All ‘da’ while expecting

‘Evr’ybody’ to jump in

Your mess

While you snake


‘Outta’ it

Leaving your friends to bite ‘da’ dust

‘An’ another one down

But to you

No big deal; what’s the fuss?


‘Da’ Yellow Brick Road

‘Wit’ friends like ‘dis’

‘Da’ blind shall lead ‘da’ blind


Ev’rybody falls in ‘dat’ ditch

‘An’ you know THIS

If it weren’t true

I wouldn’t’ve told you it


A state of mutual trust

Shared tween only us!!!

What kind of friends


‘Dis’ love?

‘Wit’ friend’s like ‘deeze’

Who needs ‘luv’?


Dedicated to: Make new friends but keep ‘da’ ol’ ‘SUM’ are for keeps; the others NEED TO GO!

I, Renee’ B. Drummond-Brown, am the wife of Cardell Nino Brown Sr. and from our union came Cardell Jr., Renee and Raven Brown. I am the offspring of Mr. and Mrs. Peter C. Drummond of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My siblings are Delbert D. Drummond and the late Pastor Shawn C. Drummond. I was born in North Carolina, at Camp Lejeune US Naval Hospital. I am a graduate of Geneva College of Pennsylvania, and my love for creative writing is undoubtedly displayed through my very unique style of poetry, which is viewed globally. My poetry is inspired by God and Dr. Maya Angelou. Because of them I pledge this: “Still I write, I write, and I’ll write!”

“Renee’s Poems with Wings are Words in Flight” is flown across the seas by God’s raven. There are several Scriptures that I love; however, this one speaks volumes during this ‘season’: “And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.” (Genesis 8:7 KJV)
