    from out of da jungle
    steps a man so humble
    in his daily thoughts and actions
    he's even meek when he's relax'n and max'n
    so down to da river he goes
    to ask da water goddess a question and get her reaction
    with her waves splash'n her water was bash'n the grounded rocks
    as fish darted and dipped in her waters in flocks
    the humble man saw this and knew it was all good
    just then a frog jumped out the river
    off a piece of float'n dry wood
    and then the frog turned to the man
    with the walk'n stick in his hand
    and said...
    what question does ye ask of thee
    don't tarry to long cause i have a meeting
    with the god of the sea at 3:00
    the humble man gathered his thoughts quickly
    and spoke to the goddess simply

    why are most men sheep?
    like da fish in your steam, they follow da leader
    follow'n madmen off ledges that are steep
    to death and the eternal heater?

    the water goddess thought about this question
    then looked at the humble man who was search'n for a lesson
    as she spoke
    the ground shoke
    then she said
    most men souls are broke
    they look for materials to fix it
    mans mind is a midget
    unless mental growth is seeded from birth
    snakes use words with deception
    and weak men think of this as a correction
    to their own flawed ways
    cause crime pays
    ho'n pays
    pimp'n pays
    kill'n pays
    steal'n pays
    -----and-------
    being a false prophet pays

    then as the frog jumped into the river
    the humble man stood his ground
    in a daze
    amazed at what he just heard
    then he realized that man will soon be extinct
    like the dodo bird

    WOW YOU ARE SO AMAZING my brotha :)

    watching the humble man ponder
    the Goddess started to wonder
    quarter till 3:00
    I must be off for the sea
    passing through forests of fascination
    the wind God whispered praises of validation
    for her recent prophecies
    to the humble man’s questioned philosophies
    the birds sang through the trees
    the affirming melodies
    of what had just been done
    “He must be the one”
    she whispered into the breeze
    as she graced the forests with eminent ease
    arriving promptly at 3:00
    she was greeted by the God of the sea
    he questioned her with a glance
    as she smiled and said “his wisdom has enhanced”
    he smiled in return
    as he welcomed the Goddess on the freedom fern
    and as her heart began to yearn

    she spoke in awe
    he questioned me on the things he saw
    never have I ever seen
    such passionate concern and clarity

    and as he spoke to me
    the Goddess within
    felt an urge to sin
    because little did he know
    his essence was aglow
    and I felt him from inside
    his love his fears, all else aside
    I told him what he needed to know
    to stimulate his mind
    to help him to grow
    the Sea God asked
    ”but does he know”
    she responded
    he is the poetic correspondent
    indeed he knows who he is
    that the power is his
    to mold and make
    stir and shape
    the traveling souls he sees
    he is grounded in his hope for prosperity

    and as the Goddess turned to leave
    she pauses to breathe
    yes indeed
    he will succeed

    a weak mind is often blown by every wind of doctrine...
    and destruction awaits for the sheep that is too naive
    to search for the real truth and wisdom of life...the sheep
    that fails to see that

    crime pays
    ho'n pays
    pimp'n pays
    kill'n pays
    steal'n pays
    -----and-------
    being a false prophet pays

    "temporary gratification but long term damnation..."

    Thanks for the knowledge!
