    We are existing in a Modern day
    Roman coliseum complete with
    cheering crowds and perverted kings
    and political(gang) affiliations...we exist in the ghetto

    brothers and sisters fight each other
    to the death /if not in the physical-
    the reflection is assassinated/
    "kick her ***" "I'm gone bust a cap in that
    ******" "yo' I got that rock" "she
    ain't ****, just cause she light skinned don't
    mean ****" and all that other rhetoric
    and thought that maims us/we are the
    lions and we hold the spears we sit in
    the cadillac chariots and are led around
    by a white horse chasing our
    blak selves/with death in mind/which is
    deadlier than if in hand

    We exist in a perpetual motion coma
