    Man say me jobless
    On the job today
    Naught for me trouble
    Just sent away

    Man call me shiftless
    At the unemployed place
    Cause me don't work
    Any **** place

    Man call me lazy
    White on him face
    Them want the day back
    When Black men slave

    Woman go away ~
    She don't want to stay
    Her economic...
    And love don't pay

    This is very good.

    I laughed as I read it because it reads as if you're speaking in the tongue of Native Americans represented by country western movies. I can see Tanto reading this poem to the Long Ranger right before they hooked up to fight crime. :lol:

    When it rains...it pours. smh

    :thanks: for sharing

    :toast:

    I really enjoyed this piece very much. Like Monetary, it bought a giggle but at the same time, I realize the seriousness (is dat a word?) of the matter at hand.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.
