santa claus was james earl jones

if my saint nick fell
through the skylight
almost every aussie kid
wd scream

cz santa looked
like james earl jones
in all my childhood dreams:

with a soundtrack
by sir mix-a-lot
& a laugh / like chaka kahn
the agility / of muhammad ali
& the quirkiness of grace jones

his sack / it held black booty
his red pants did much the same
obeah men made the presents
& black panthers hauled the sleigh

santa claus wz james earl jones
in all my childhood dreams
& i waited / by the skylight
bt i always fell asleep
