In the poem Black People by Amiri Baraka, there is this line:

"words. The magic words are: Up against the wall motherfucker"

I found the poem in the most round about way ever. It is buried on page 9 of the Google search results for ""Black People" poem Baraka", in Google Book results.

Talk about silence.

When I read the line the first time in a post about silence, I misread them with no punctuation.

The magic words are up against the wall motherfucker.

No truer words as to writing, I gotta say.
