    This poem is for those who lie.

    (LIE = lying to others, lying to self, breaking promises)



    "Knock On Wood"



    *singing* "How sweet it is to be loved by you..."


    ...and you.


    ...and you.




    It just happened ?
    Well SOME things should NEVER FUCCIN HAPPEN
    you LOVE Aladdin but you over here fuccin' w/ Jasmine ???
    Touchin & Laughin
    actin like it's nothin
    Attraction stuck in the dash
    but you SHRUG when Mu'fucaz is askin


    Energy knows before the **** is exposed --
    but you say i'm 3rd eye blind.


    Energy knows before the **** is exposed --
    but you say I'm out my Mind !!!

    To think you just might do what you said you'd NOT do

    I guess pilgrims , republicans & Judas
    forgot to Knock On Wood too !





    but... you be like :

    " Hey - i wouldn't do that, you ain't got nothin to worry'bout
    whatever you heard about, that **** is word of mouth.
    Please, I know myself - just ignore your gut feelin
    I'd never do those things you fear,
    for you i have too much feelins.
    Trust me. "

    But if you bust "me" in the act in then
    they'll be say "that **** just happened"

    Well SOME things should NEVER FUCCIN HAPPEN
    If i was a thug in my actinos
    you'd be full of slugs w/ a passion
    all the time, I might as well been huggin assassin
    cuz your word is NOT your bond,
    liars just be yappin.



    Energy knows before the **** is exposed -
    but you say i'm 3rd eye blind.

    Bones are feelin' it comin' over the horizon but you promise
    otherwise.


    Energy knows before the **** is exposed -
    but you say i'm out my mind

    ... to need some re-assurance for the umpteenth time.



    and then.... you do it anyway.


    You know...

    that which you promised that you'd not do.

    But hey if my promises were empty I might forget to
    knock on wood too.

    Cuz your mouth is writing checks your actions cannot cash.

    Letting others hang their faith & hope on your word
    and you KNOW them funds are insufficient up the a s s.




    Yes, things DO change - but how much will you compromise
    when somebody's tryin to trust you enough to let
    your WORD straighten their spine.


    Is sacred in the house ????

    Is sacred here ??

    Is there ANYTHING that's still sacred ???


    Oh - and this ain't no hateration or a colder shoulder
    this is principle on call waitin but you won't click over.

    and...

    who am i to try and call it ?
    There's plenty degrees my character is lackin.
    But i'll bend Heaven and Earth to ensure my word being
    broken
    doesn't

    "just happen".



    Knock On Wood.
