    Corner store choirs
    Holding their desires
    From the crotches
    Of their Pants
    Singing alcoholic hymns
    On bended knees
    Gamblin'
    Praying
    That btych seven comes
    The Young
    Old men chant
    Can't see pass
    Selling somebody's
    Sister's
    Mother's
    Auntee's
    Daughter's
    Thought she was his
    Lover
    Just some
    Come up
    Ask any
    Corner store choirs
    Only desire
    Aspire to
    Make Black dollars turn
    Illegally earned
    The Hustle is learned
    Even if it sho' nuff
    Be a crime
    Ghetto congregation
    With no paid vocation
    Long ago
    Lost their souls
    Goals?
    Only to escape doing time...
