    Syllabus 101

    Now listen carefully if you will, to the ounce of info
    I will spill
    Understand that Your ear is just not big enough to
    Catch the vibe of even one of my life times
    So accept the reality of who you perceive me to be
    Based solely on your knowledge of me
    and
    Always suspecting the free cards dealt to you in “love”
    By your know enemies

    I know you don’t know when the script was flipped
    So just listen carefully as I navigate this trip

    You say that I don’t know you and I am sure that that is true
    But if you recall I always sat and listened as You talked all about you
    So don’t be surprised to know that I know more than you think I do

    In the play of life I have played many characters
    One of which you think is the fool
    But if you will
    Press the rewind button
    And play the script back carefully
    Do the math totaling the wins and losses
    Look in the mirror and laugh at yourself
    Than maybe you are truly ready (grasshopper)
    To understand the nature of the game

    Now
    Don’t be bitter and mad
    cus a lesson earned is a lesson

    Learned

    and you have earned this lesson

    And now you have learned
    The advantage of perceived ignorance
    And if you are wise you will
    Recognize the real ignorance in ignorance
    And learn to respect the wisdom of time
    Make no assumptions
    And
    Listening more carefully next time

    I told you the name of the game

    Long before you went
    Insane
    you just wasn't listening

    1st thang that came to my mind as i was
    reading this was... "well! it just be dat way sometimes!"
    2nd thang was... "don't hate the playa, hate the game!"

    itsallLove, chile.
