    Most people know that
    Most money grows slow thru
    Real-a- state equity and retirement accounts
    But according to our videos
    Our money grows thru
    Flipping kilo’s and shoot outs and big booty hoes
    And a poet aint shyit if they can’t
    Give the crowd summing to think about
    And to me
    A pussssy poet aint got to talk about sex
    What makes a poet pusssssy is his refusal
    To stretch the minds of the listeners
    In a time when off brand rent a centers
    Are getting paid off of rent to own spinners
    And losers feel like winners
    When they spend more time
    Thinking about they car accessories then they do their children

    And women are losing their sense of purpose over
    800 dollar boots and 2500 dollar purses
    and to me
    if a poet cant give a crowd summing to think about
    Then all on his verses are basically worthless

    I see these poetry forums like churches
    They say whatever they have 2 to get your wallet open
    But then if u dig deeply beneath the surface
    Ask why u do this for, she says she just trying to get rich quick like jay-z
    The ink on criminals fingers lingers longer than the careers of our favorite
    Rapp singers and still catz seem shocked to find that a life of street crime only buys you jail time it don’t buy you no daamn maybach

    (sing)
    and its like yaaaaaaaa
    and u don’t stop !!!!!!!!
    cause its like a 187 on my people fucckk a cop

    if I refuse not to speak truth to power
    so I need you to feel this
    like a dry fountain pen being slit across your ribs
    that’s why I kill myself writing
    until I read reasons to live
    And keep my ego shouted
    Integrity I never read poems with out it
    im a soul scribe that means I have to take it to a letter beyond a M.C
    And try to save lives like a M.D
    And right from inside M.E. to rip this forum like a M.F
    Till every poet in this forum breathes my breath
    Till we all connect and your eyes stop blinking
    Cause a poet aint shyit if he rocks the mic if after he drops it the crowd aint left thinking
    ,,hookup :thinking: :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:

    Hook you layed another blast on the world. This flow unfurls into the mind and leaves the reader thinking. You have reached another plateau of penmanship. Keep this one current and in the mind of many. :time:

    (one for the book ) :grin:

    Definitely true. I love being fed knowledge, and i agree that some of the best oems/spoken words artist in my opinion are the ones that leave me thinking.
    Don't be afraid to step on toes...good write

    ...love the 187...that was the hottness

    What can I say...except that YOU are an inspiration
    and an integral part of the bridge that will hopefully connect
    the fire and passion and REASON FOR WRITING of "the real poets"
    such as Huges, Giovanni, Neruda, Sanchez...(this list goes on)
    ...connect the gap that leaves today's poet AMISS when it all comes down to it...
    Cause poetry...should never be pimped and unfortunately...
    It's so cliche and cool to be a poet...
    The artform is broken to pieces...
    and everyone wants a crumb...
    even non-poets, who simply just wanna make a profit....
    off the poets and the crumbsnatchers
    As one artist to another...it's enough to make
    the soul of poetry...cry

    Boy...You know....You soooooooooo KNOW

    :bowdown:
