    Revolutionary Dreams By Nikki Giovanni

    I used to dream militant dreams
    of taking over america to show
    these white folks
    how it should be done

    I used to dream radical dreams
    of blowing everyone away
    with my perceptive powers
    of correct analysis

    I even used to think I'd be the one
    to stop the riot and
    negotiate the peace

    then I awoke and dug
    that if I dreamed natural
    dreams of being a natural
    woman doing what a woman
    does when she's natural
    I would have a revolution.
