    a good man, with... (edited- duo w.info-moetry)

    Dont step to me
    with out a bachelors degree,
    or first hand experience,
    of what life has tought thee,
    you better posess world knowledge,
    wit and humor too,

    I dotn have pity,
    on how your life has been gritty,
    tell me what have you learned,
    from your actions, and strife

    Aint crap in life free,
    you cant build a family tree,
    without any money,
    unless u wanna be slave
    to the man,
    so he dictates,
    what u can,
    and can not do..

    You call me bourgeios,
    that I may be,
    because i have social glaucoma,
    I just cant see my *** bein broke,

    I want to travel far and wide,
    seeing all that the world
    has to hide,
    Nope! Just cant do it,

    Im jes sayn,
    give me hope for tomorrw,
    a better future than the past,
    fall in love with me every day,
    and make the love last,
    Educate my children,
    feed my soul,
    I value a good man,
    more than king tuts gold!
