    2k4, paperboy
    ima end this week like
    this

    on this note
    this note, off key the piano be
    stinging

    who wanna sing
    with a boy
    who is forced to be something
    he ain’t ready
    but that something

    he gotta be a man
    quick, the world is credits
    late fees
    he just a boy right
    how he live with no credit at three

    plus 10, trying to make 10 dollars
    into 10 that, plus at school he miss 10 days str8
    10 years from now
    his little girl will be ten
    he destined for ten in the pen
    then ten years after that
    his parole is over
    after ten years at 10 jobs
    10 months being unemployed
    hopefully he can buy a lawnmo
    from pawn and get 10 yards
    at 10 fo da front and ten back
    tin man gossips about his girl in college
    she ten years older
    about to marry a man ten years older
    in the meantime the gift he promised them was 10 times what he could afford
    the reception was an escort to the 10 drinks he sought

    10 hours he wakes up at 10
    hes reminded 10 times the party was over at one
    last night he gets a notice hes got 10 days to pay the light bill
    if doesn’t respond hes got 10 days after that before a late fee
    cuz he was passed by 10 times
    by people who couldn’t spare him 10 dimes

    succinctly laid out...and the development it is easy to see
