    Inspired by the bleakness of the employment outlook due 2 Bush's presidency & his decisions of allowing illegal immigrants 2 stay & work as more of AmeriKKKa's citizens are counted out of the game.


    What's up young brother, how U feelin'?
    Me, I'm just chillin',
    Playin' the hand that life's been dealin'...
    It hasn't been a good game 4 me, but I'm still in.
    Sometimes I feel like stealin' chips,
    but then I rethink my gameplan & put on my poker face.
    Hopin' fate will get on my side 1 time & bluff 'em outta they're game.
    I'm scared but remain seated with the big wigs wipin their sweat.
    I get my bet on the table & hope they fold...
    Wonderin' if the doubt behind my eyes show...

    I've been playin' this game since I was a youngin',
    so my skills are solid.
    I count cards & if I get the one I like, I mark it...
    I haven't been caught yet.
    I'm not the smartest but my mind has gotten me this far.
    I play how they play in appearance, but I gotta switch cards
    with the ones up my sleeve.
    Cuz they're out 2 deliver my defeat.
    But I still have my seat at they're table
    & it's starting 2 look promising.
    "I'm A Survivor" is the song I sing as others begin 2 leave.
    But I refuse 2 lose.

    at the white shack

    Bluewater, thanks 4 the feel of this flow, this game is a serious one, & if U ain't tryin' 2 play 2 win, then you'll be @ss out, 4real.

    Brother rasheed, here's your ticket, watch a brother get wicked...(P.E.)
    Thank U 4 overstanding.

    Thank U mzblk, count the cards.

    verse, say it again cuz I don't think they heard U right.

    Brother $$, that's all i can do, if I don't then I've failed myself, my bredren & my sistren. Thanx 4 the read.

    watz, as ill as it is, it really ain't playin', it's serious... Thank U 4 the words, sister.
