    (sorry this is not really a poem...)
    :puke2:
    its just my mind hollin out loud
    trying to figure out the politics
    of the ghetto has led me to conclude
    there is no foreign trade policy for
    the hood. nor does the trickle down theory
    apply to those whose water has been shut
    off - democracy has been bought out for
    an undisclosed amount; word on the street
    is, its new owner is disparity
    who is now subsidizing substandard
    housing projects for those who qualify
    only negroes and white trash need apply
    and when traveling to the suburbs don't
    forget your passport, police escort, and
    good excuse: i'm going to pizza hut
    because they don't deliver in the hood
    i would order dominoes, but nafta
    didn't include third world cities
    so they deliver black market pizzas
    that taste like injustice. my car died, can't
    go out now, so i walk to burger king
    at 8 pm, but can't get in because
    the dining room closed down at 6 pm
    can't walk through the drive thru,...now im contemplating
    the fifty blocks to the nearest fast food joint
    i wonder what other options do the
    children have except chips, pop and candy
    at the overpriced arab stores selling
    cigarettes and liquor to minors for
    food stamps or brigde cards they'll buy at :argue: :argue: half face value
    sitting secluded in my discontent
    i'm trying to figure out why it's so
    hard to get a pizza brought to the hood
    drugs get delivered twenty-four-seven
    maybe the suppliers could make a deal
    with pizza hut, to deliver seven
    pizzas per day, per kilo sold, except
    on sundays and holidays when you'll get
    a 2 for one special and a vile of
    crack will get you a free two-liter or
    an order of bread sticks, never forget
    your hunger is nothing addiction is
    everything, obey your addiction get
    high/when you get the munchies/remember
    pizza is not a choice for inner city
    dwellers, even automatic tellers
    close down fearing illegal withdrawals
    what's next, armed mail delivery, army
    artillery protecting rite aid, a
    shortage on lemonade because farmers
    are afraid of dissatisfied ghetto
    juveniles renting john deer tractors for
    drive-byes, why ask why, cops are always there
    to give tickets, but have a forty-five
    minute response time to crime, and 9-l-l
    sent paramedics two hours too late
    to medicate my cousin's stroke, and now
    i miss her - maybe e.m.s. could take orders
    and if they take longer than a half-hour
    they can feed the family members of
    the deceased tasty pieces of pizza
    that they couldn't et any other time
    maybe i'm overreaching, to the
    fact that pizza hut don't deliver to
    my urban habitat, poverty in
    black is probably intimidating
    and i shouldn't find it degrading that
    there's not a big enough profit in a
    onion, green pepper and cheese to risk the
    facilitating of my hunger's need to
    feed on a scrumptious thick crust to feed my lust
    for justice in any form, then again
    maybe hell ain't warm and color is just a uniform
    used to decide what side of town pizza
    is delivered to, and if you're black then
    the color is "definitely not you." :deal:

    Not your fault that the dealers make more deliveries than the pizza man does....This was a free flowing expression of an unfortunate reality.

    Exactly...our society is so maddening...
    and it is what it is...
    sometimes we just have to vent
    thought provoking and angering piece...

    Where is justice when we need it...
    Nice flow!
