    Ghetto is when you wanted change for a dollar and I gave you just you asked for,
    One hundred pennies.
    It is when my last months phone bill was a ten dollar calling card.
    It is when my yard got nappy and needed to be mowed and I just lit the yard on fire
    It is when I was hungry
    Didn’t have enough to eat.
    Had hamburger buns, but no hamburger meat.
    Ketchup no Mustard
    Collards no Greens.
    Listened on the radio to Black and no Street
    Call me ghetto
    Cause that’s just what I am
    Just so you know
    Ghetto could be, green and eggs and ham
    And Oooh what’s that smell in the kitchen
    Caviar and green candied yams?
    See you know ghetto as sunny with no delight
    You’re very wrong but that too is alright
    You can go to Baskin Robins for forty different flavors of ice crream
    I’ll be smart simply using Koolaid and ice cubes
    Concocting ghetto cream
    You keep on staring through your telescope at all of heaven’s stars
    I’ll keep on watching TNT and all those ghetto superstars
    Please keep on going to sleep and borrowing sandman’s dreams
    Cause I’ll be having visions and great ideas.
    Guess What?
    They’re Ghetto Dreams!

    When you open up a box of chocolates from the ghetto there is no telling what combination of treats you're gonna get. The depth of this, was awesome. Take a bow poet.
