    adrenaline drives me
    to drown out my drudginess and jig
    to the jam
    of my own drummer

    i mean i...

    generally have a genuine dream
    to be understood by a
    judge and
    jury of my peers

    juvenile joy juxtaposed with
    drugs and drama
    draws jargon from my jaws

    thoughts throw themselves at my thalamus
    and leap from my larynx
    gesturing towards justice
    or just...
    whatevers on my mind that may
    justify me...

    young brotha
    yoked by
    yachts blings
    bypassing the belief that being bamboozled
    began with boats and bracelets...

    spring chicken
    seeks chips so
    some chump
    seduces smashes inseminates sista
    with stray sons
    and slavery supplements itself

    and with what do we wait?
    hopeless hustles?
    chastised children?
    f**ked up fantasies of false
    hoods?
    (for we all fall faster for the fabricated)

    folks are further fascinated
    by facetious acts of fate
    facts of faith
    gradually graduated
    as our grandmas grasped us
    on their emigration to the grave
    but then grew grey...
    and lonely..
    and as far away as heaven...

    however...
    how heaven could even hear
    half of a hollow heathen's holler
    not even on her own
    be half
    is be tween
    where i be gan
    and where i be now
    and still be yond
    me...
