Poetry

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD/OR THE LATE NIGHT HORROR SHOW
NOT FOR I BUT MY BRETHERENS CARE.WHAT I SAW SHOOK ME FROM MY TOES
TO THE TIPS OF MY HAIR
E=Mc2 DRUGS =DESTRUCTION AND DEATH
FOR A BAG OF DESIEL 911 TANGO AND CASH
357 MAGNUM 24HOURS THILLER BLACKJACK LAST CHANCE
BLUE MAGIK THESE ARE NAMES OF THE DOPE DEALERS BRANDS THEIR BAGS
OF DEATH .
AND JUNKIES USE IT ABUSE IT TILL THEY LAST BREATH.
I WATCH THEM COME THRU THE PROJECTS FROM MORNING
TILL LATE LOCK IN LIKE PRISON GATES, BUT THIS BE THERE OWN DEATH ROW
MUCH LIKE A LATE NIGHT HORROR SHOW
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD BURNING BRAIN CELLS OF THE HEAD.
SKEEZERS INVITING YOU THERE DRUG INVESTED BEDS
BABIES MAKING BABIES THE NEXT GENERATION OF DRUGGIES AND DRUGGETS
GUN SHOTS RIP THROUGH THE NIGHTS AIR POLICE REALLY DONT CARE
THE MAYORS NOT DOWN THERE LOST AND FORGOTTEN BY THE POLITICIANS
THIS BE THE CITY OF NO HOPE!
AND WE ARE JUST LIKE OUR ANCESTORS OF OLD NOT THE KINGS QUEENS
BUT SLAVES TO THE WHITE POWDER OF CRACK AND SMACK
GO ON,BOARD THAT SLAVE SHIP,REACH YOUR DESTINATION
PICK DOPE ON MASTAS PLANTATION
HURT AND MOAN TILL THERE NOTHING LEFT BUT SKIN AND BONES
JAWS SUCK IN LIKE SKELETON
TRAP IN LIKE RATS IN A MAZE,SICKENING TO SEE THE DRUG CRAZE.
HOW CAN A CRIPPLE FIGHT, MY PEN IS MY WEAPON AND HOW I CHOOSE TO FIGHT
DONT KNOW IF I CAN EVER WIN BUT NEVER WILL I EVER GIVE UP ON MY
SISTEREN OR BRETHEREN
NEVER FORGET IT C.I.A. A BUNCH OF THE SOLD DRUGS TO CRIPS AND BLOODS
IT WAS BAD WHAT FELT WHAT I SEEN ILL NEVER LET A FIEN COME BETWEEN
AND MY DREAM! PUTTING MY LIFE IN ORDER I GOT LITTLE ONES THAT I LOVE
ABOUT ME THEY CARE ABOUT LANAISA NYASIA JALA SENEYA DUKE JR.
BLAIR ,YAZMIYN , AHMAD , NASIR , ZAHIRAH MY GRANDSONS DAUGHTERS
