    For my sistahs strugglin with these baby daddys

    We have an epidemic on our hands
    It has spreaded across many lands
    It knows no race or color
    But happens only in brothers

    It seems to spread like AIDS
    Keeps comin back like Cancer
    Will there ever be a cure
    Only He'll determine the answer

    See I became a victim
    And there are many others :look:
    Just take a look around
    Victims = single mothers

    They know women out number men
    And this is where the game begins
    And We women need to learn not
    to fall for these men :bowdown:

    If he got kids he don't care for
    And stayin home with mama
    Why in the world would you want to
    be in the midst of that drama


    Then they start planting their seeds
    Like a freakin peas in a pod
    Then they run from responsibility
    Leavin many broken hearts

    It's time for men to start standing up
    Start mending these broken homes :court:
    All it takes is Gutz
    And a little backbone

    Just think of the lives you can change :angel1:
    How many homes you can make Happy
    By not becomin infected with the
    Nappy, Crappy, Pappy

    I hear U loud & clear.
    It's a terrible pandemic whose only cure is respect.
    Respect of self as well as 4 others.

    Nice piece.
