    There's no place like da block

    where sounds ring from da glot
    these streets like hittin da bricks
    pointing , aiming just for kicks
    til the up rise of sir city slick
    controlling da hood wit his fix
    minds gone to waste
    souls linger in steady pace
    stupidity looks on there face
    as i move in to take my place
    teaching the whips and da prickz
    while they lable me this new trick
    but i'm trying to save my kind
    from losing there simple minds
    and don't go insane from the mess
    fed to da brain that has a enternal stain
    too many reaching out to ole kane
    and looking for good shane
    to rock and feed da vein just before
    another ring of bang )) bang )))
    victim child lay still mis-fire kill
    on da block in dead winter alwayz hot
    cleaning up da act for act II .

    Saving our kind is more than just a notion on the block, with each curtain call another child is going to fall. Keep forging ahead, speak on it poet.
