    i've been conditioned by
    these tapping keys connected to
    this computer / whose company is
    owned by some white man / ****,
    he got me again / see i've been
    conditioned by the tapping of these
    keys cause the rhythm of
    tap
    ......tap.....tap.....tap
    tap tap tap tap
    tap (space bar) tap
    makes me return to my
    conceived inherent self
    rhythmic /
    words seem to flow easily to
    a beat
    and when I stop tapping
    my eye is stripped and i
    lose my way
    and upon feeling around for the
    keyboard i hear "tap"/
    i've found myself again
    and that white man that i
    mentioned about 20 or so lines
    ago was just an example you know
    ie, eg
    of how conditioning can stunt you
    strip you of your third eye
    and if you don't hit that key
    you'll be lost forever
    (but it be seeming like
    all kinds of brothers and sisters
    be singing hitting all kinds of keys
    and we still searching)
    tap...tap...tap...tap
    tap
    tap
    tap
    (return)

    I .... I ...

    I can get with
    the
    rhetorical
    thought processes
    brought on
    by this
    conditioned disease,
    but brotha
    I've got to tell
    you exactly why
    sista keep
    tappin' these
    keys...
    in my "just
    makin' it" world
    I've got to
    survive...
    the necessities
    of life depend
    on my 9 to 5
    I be
    waiting on
    my check
    yes, there may be "the
    white man" on the
    other side
    of them bills
    them keys
    them dollars
    but me and
    my shawty
    have got to
    do more than
    survive...
    ...Gots to have
    money to pay
    for these living
    expenses...
    There's a cost for
    rent
    to maintain
    a crib
    and I'm shelling
    out loot
    for that S.U.V
    then comes
    ...daycare expenses
    and basic utilities
    I've got to
    do better
    than just
    tappin' on
    PC keys
    I need to
    show my daughter
    constant
    STABILITY
    and yes, in my
    mind I'm never
    at ease,
    cause a sista
    like me is
    ONE PAYCHECK
    SHORT OF
    PHUCKIN' POVERTY

    I hear what
    you sayin' bout
    Chez Whitey
    but brotha I gotta
    tell you ain't nobody
    but me
    gonna take
    care of my seed

    .... So, we do as we must!


    Peace Blak
