Verses and Flow is a 30-minute variety show that airs on TVOne featuring spoken word artists and musicians performing their work to a predominately black crowd. Don’t worry, you’re not the first person who’s never heard of this show either. Apparently Verses and Flow is on its third season of people not knowing it exists.

Anyway, a friend of mine sent me this video clip from the show back in September showcasing poet Prentice Powell performing his work called, “The System.” Its an interesting futuristic examination of corporation and government control over the black masses through manipulation.
