    THE HAND GAME

    one two three four five
    six little babies barley alive
    mother went out to
    bust her head
    five days later five babies were dead


    Where's my brothers

    my mommy's pregant
    she's having twins
    but she's been shooting
    that stuff again
    i seen her in the bathroom
    sticking her arm
    but she kept saying
    aint no harm

    my mommy had her babies
    but when she came home
    she walked trough the door
    all alone
    where's my brothers
    i started to cry
    one was addicted
    and the other one died

    your works reflect a harsh but true reality
    of our society today........a part that is often
    hidden...or rather ignored by the masses...
    no one wants to see but it must be dealt with


    I really like the title, very creative play on the constrast
    of a series of urgent issues at hand....conscious flow

    I love the grimm fairy tale rhymes. Come with another. How about

    Little Jack Horner.
    Sold drugs on the corner.
    To buy his po family some bread.

    One trick.

    Two tricks

    He's liking the silver.

    Making bank.
    Exciting thriller.

    Got's some homees hanging out.
    All day long.
    What a life.

    Sipping forty cause the day is thru.
    Man slinging isn't easy boo.

    Next day out early.
    Man he beat the sun.

    Rooster crows.

    Cops.

    YOU'LL RUN!

    POLICE!

    Stop I'll shoot.
    Says the man.

    Knowing he's dealing with dreads of the land.

    No will blame me.

    No one will care.

    Blow away a slinger.

    Lieutenant badge there.

    Bam.. goes the crack of his gun.

    One boy falls other still run.

    Plant a piece on him later.

    Cuff him boys I will see you later.

    I can bag another one.

    I like this sport.

    They keep it fun.

    We have done this so many times.

    It's like everyone knows their lines.

    Bam

    Goes the gun now that one's dead.

    Change the plant.

    To this one instead.

    Now lets get our storys straight.
    For the report
    I'm going to make.

    Me and my partner.
    Rounded the corner.
    We saw these perps.
    Slinging rock.

    I told my partner to come from the back.
    I would come from the front.

    As the perps saw me coming.

    Jack rabbit.. I can't say that.

    They start running.

    Pushed past my partner.

    I screamed stop.

    Pulled my weapon.

    Made a pop.

    I was defending my life you see.

    They are always trying to kill on me.

    I am here to protect and serve.

    Case closed..

    WE gots nerve. The judge is on my side.

    Their parents pay our salary right.
    From the taxes of the income fight.
    I know we should be real grateful.
    But I don't like their kind.

    Little Jack Horner dead on the corner.
    This ain't no nursery rhyme.
    :cool:
