Christopher D Sims - The Way You Touch Me

The way you touch me
is symphony stuccato like.
Leaning towards love and
feelings of lavender.

The way you touch me teases,
tosses, turns, tightens, and
transforms my essence.

The way you touch me
is beyond description.
I can't put a hold on the

I turn to Saturn and Mars for answers
- the experience is just that out there.

The way you touch me
is jazz
is justice
is granduer is great
Carries me to elegant evenings.
is the moon's music, the sun's rays
on the softness of my back.
I don'tknow how to act
when you touch me.

Is love on high
Heaven in purple hues.
My muse, sometimes I
get so confused, but I know
I can't lose.

Your touch I wont refuse.

Is awesome, awakening,

Is evidence of divinity.
Is continuously on my mind
when you're not touching me.

Is subtle, like satire, makes me sing
is incredible, special, brings me solitude.

Is like a Maxwell song, Sade, Jill Scott,
Anita Baker, your touch is major.

Is beyond words, preferred, the slightest verb.
Unnerves me in the most delightful ways.

For your touch, I pray.

Christopher D Sims - Tanya's Hungry

Welfare is not at all fair
Especially when you factor in
The cost of health care
and a woman needing a perm
in her hair. 

She stares at an empty pantry
producing nothing but starving children. 

Tanya's hungry without hope.
Her food stamps ran out
Just like the father of her starving

Mothers in the millions
Face this rediculous reality.
Mathematically, we were
doing better in the 80s and

Tanya's hungry and
who the hell cares??!!

In the pantry she stares,
and stares, and stares.
Hoping that food magically

How can the cost of food rise
when the level of "livable wages"
stay the same???

Politicians remained removed
from most people's heartache
and pain.

Debating about nada
when Tanya after Tanya
deal with the drama in
food stamp offices and
long lines.

Tanya's hungry. She's hungry
as hell!! She asks, What can I
sale? What can I invent? What
can I create? For the baby's 

Tanya's hungry. Tanya's hungry.
Tanya's hungry.

We need more government cheese
to feed the needy. Unbelievably,
the poverty rate is just that high.

Tanya cries and wonders why.

Tanya's hungry!

Christopher D sims - If politicians really cared..

If Politician's Really Cared - A Poem by Christopher D. Sims

if politician's really cared,
we would not be in such
a drastic situation.
we would not talk of inflation
or global invasions.

if politicians really cared
Joan could keep her house.
American manufacturers
would not have relocated oversees
or flooded the South.

if politicians really cared
we'd have a more balanced
political system. less Black and
Latino men would be locked up
in prison.

if politians really cared,
education would mean much more.
how to really motivate our children
would be the most important subject
being debated on the House floor.

if politicians really cared, America
would be more than just the "best."
we'd be a true beacon of light
that held hands and participated
with the rest.

Scrimshire featuring Stac “All I Do Is Think of You (Tammi Terrell/ Stevie Wonder Cover)”

Yes, yes, we know.
Stevie Wonder’s catalog really doesn’t need to be touched by anyone that’s not named Stevie Wonder, though really, does that ever stop anyone’s inner spirit from getting filled with joy every time they hear the familiar opening notes to any one of the musical geniuses’ lengthy list of treasured classics at the karaoke bar, no matter how much the ballsy person behind the mic ends up being a disappointment? No.
File this cover of Wonder’s preciousHotter Than July album jam “All I Do”in the (paper-thin) folder of SW remakes that work on all levels, though.
Brought to life by producer/ multi-instrumentalist Scrimshire and jazzy songbird Stac for the Wah Wah 45s music label’s new compilation Allo Love Volume One, this version may lack Stevie’s groovy post-disco shimmer, but that’s ultimately made up for in the soft-to-the-touch soul-pop sweetness of Stac’s innocent, understated coos towards her exciting new love and Scrimshire’s crisp string-laced backing (both nodding towards Tammi Terrell‘s similarly-styled obscure original cut) that make this number sound like the most sugariest of lullabyes.
