    OUR ECONOMY

    It’s morning got a legit warning grabbed a basin of water
    Now facing slaughter as I start the day life out of order
    Like broken machines, hoping extreme to succed in this economy
    A gallon of milk more than gas, bored with this trash astronomy
    Search for stars while I eat much jars of canned food stabbing
    Spam and collabbing with ham sandwiches while girls babbling
    Feel unpleasant revealed as a peasant on the streets having
    Pride is funny tried to put aside some money wanna be grabbing
    A new car to add a true bazaar to my life, my methods although
    Savage I fall below average like flunkies in school couldn’t go
    To college, in life misled doe my head took a blow now dizzy
    And somehow busy putting pieces together brain and hair frizzy
    Have pride and choice write rocky script and use a jockey’s whip
    When I ride horse not really just bet on horse races mind done flip
    on bike my fate is to pedal got a plate of metal for chain repair
    petro in the ghetto is a very expensive and intensive affair
    little peace in the Middleeast crisis unloaded as prices are quoted
    folks soar and holler regular gas reaches four dollars and noted
    worldwide, can’t be hushing doe because it’s a crushing blow
    to our economy, write hood rhymes and try have good times go
    See JJ and Stelma and become calm and famous like John Amos
    Low on a cash is a groove corrupt wanna move on up in this lame dust
    Like George and Weezy, ride bicycles in stride for nickels my mood
    Is good been booed in the hood and like glued wood my attitude
    Stick together must be slick true and clever to hussle with muscle elude
    Bad habit, in great stress ready to take a test need knowledge to pass
    Garbage and trash give wrong answers

    The prices just keep on rising, higher and higher beyond our reach. We keep on striving though, trying to make a way out of no way. Speak on it.
