Langston Hughes

Here you will find the Poem 50-50 of poet Langston Hughes


I?m all alone in this world, she said, 
Ain?t got nobody to share my bed, 
Ain?t got nobody to hold my hand? 
The truth of the matter?s 
I ain?t got no man. 

Big Boy opened his mouth and said, 
Trouble with you is 
You ain?t got no head! 
If you had a head and used your mind 
You could have me with you 
All the time. 

She answered, Babe, what must I do? 

He said, Share your bed? 
And your money, too.
