    corners chilled
    brothers hang
    livin' today for
    today
    tomorrow is
    never thought
    only today
    mat ters
    future is a foreign
    word (word)
    with no passport
    on the boundaries
    of misguided minds
    pothole filled souls

    (can I get some sweet potatoe
    pie and fried chicken to make me
    feel whole?)

    blood is spilled
    brothers slain
    givin' away scores
    of tomorrow's
    caskets bought
    (they got two for ones
    at Wilder's funeral home)
    for all those brothers
    from Lee Lee to Ray Ray
    nothing mat ter ed
    eyes sutured shut
    don't want to see
    to mor row
    dreams are pourin'
    dying on concrete
    beyond the boundaries
    of misguided souls.

    (Can i buy some hope and faith
    for two dollars B.O.B?)

    You wrote the verb on this. Sad...so sad, because it's so real.
