    Easy as it seem
    some view money as green
    but it da power of greed
    standard of our oppressor
    yet a greater obsession of need
    deeply found we are da creed

    Money is not so green
    it's devil eyed RED upon our head
    the destroyer of living dead
    lone da urge to splurge
    inside the trend of money bend
    we all need to survived
    keep a place to where we reside
    pay off forever debts
    never sure passing oppression
    of deep inner community poverty

    Like a material possession
    so many fight in this degression
    to strive for the wealth
    what we see as green
    yet not what it seem
    it's da RED of blood
    how we kill , steal at will of it
    and sell out our soul to have it
    how we use betrayal to get it
    how it divide the nation of us
    money is a deed note of goven
    and the paper line to struggle

    what color is your cash
    the money of death
    that our future
    how long will it last
    this myth of green seen
    filled with presidents of the pass
    to control our working @*z
    smoke color on my back
    dark skin yet not so black
    that still lack this treasure to life
    born empty naked not a cent
    silver spool i'll never get
    just some more ancestor old slavery
    welps and depression to da oppressor
    is how so many is kept

    this great wealth of color paper
    continue to rise like a skyscrapper
    yet it take all u earn and
    it's easly burned yet the yearn is high
    it's what get da world now by
    O' Father how i try to understand why !
    what seem green not at all it's just
    growing into a deadly call
    C~O~L~O~R*O~F*M~O~N~E~Y bold

    RED........
    :cry:

    life is beautiful it's the people within it......whom for RED
    money will kill steal and destroy , use betrayal and lose faith
    live in greed and unworthy structure to keep another struggling
    in oppression and poverty as human beings , money not as green
    as it seem.........Thankz for the visit into the world of realism of money!

    Things cost so much money, unecessarily so. People almost going crazy trying to make ends meet. And then you have those who would cut their own mama for the almighty dollar. Deep drop Rich, go head and talk about it.

    ...one of the most insightful pieces I've read of your work
    and so true...
    Money is a tool that is needed and necessary
    but to often are the hearts of men tainted by greed
    and thus...blood is shed over the love of it

    good topic
    and nice flow
