    in a day and time
    when it's easier to abuse and mistreat her
    than respect and please her

    ARE YOU YOUR SISTAH'S REAPER?

    do you need her
    so that you can cut and bleed her
    for every dime she's ever saved
    ...every ounce of her love, she gave
    to make you happy

    WHAT DID YOU DO?

    ran up in her...
    chased her pride away
    dignity went next
    when insanity came to stay

    now, you wanna leave

    is that really what you wanna do

    is that the love and honor
    or, the selfishness of you

    open your eyes, my brutha
    to the love you have
    gift-wrapped in ecstasy
    'til you killed her GLAD

    are you ready to see this one with another
    eyes smiling brightly
    in the arms of an appreciative brutha

    is that really what you want

    Say It!

    ****! Some one has to say it and you did. You hit a nerve because it reminds me of what I have seen and makes me angry to think that we never say anything about it and you did--thanx--Amun-Ra
