    No decent advesaries
    To talk to or see
    No one to laugh to joke with
    This city brings me tons of grief
    No clear radio station
    Or any kind of joy
    That's what I'm experiencing
    In Cahokia Illinois

    No guaranteed employment
    To choose as we please
    No freedom to walk out your door
    Without seeing the police
    No driving with confidence
    And hearing a rude voice
    Why did I make a mistake
    Living in Cahokia Illinois

    No teamwork or affection
    As the world continues to turn
    No respect, love and unity
    As far as I'm concerned
    No children with manners
    That's pre-adolosecents girls and boys
    There's no way to rescue
    Cahokia Illinois.

    :wave: Haaaaaay Legit-Writer :wave:

    Great Flow ... Legit-Writer fits you perfectly!

    As i read this peace and learned that there are no clear radio stations in Cahokia, IL ... well ... i had to let you know that we have our own radio station here ... www.************/radio ... and we have some of the other things, that Cahokia is missing ... such as ... people to laugh and talk with, teamwork and affection, respect, love and unity ... just to name a few ... so please don't feel trapped, because you're not ... just turn on the computer and escape from that spot ... c'mon home to us where respect is a must ... you can even talk with Sisters and Brothers, from all over the world ... just stop into voice chat, c'mon give it a whirl ... www.************/chat ... and even though you're in Cahokia, IL all ya gotta do is come home where there's much to enjoy! :)

    :heart:
