    Trails of piss run rivers
    from walls to cracks in
    the sidewalks in a back
    and forth crooked manner
    quenching the thirst of
    a seed that wants to
    bless the world with it's
    future...
    ...despite being surrounded
    by broken glass and shells
    that used to hold 9 milli slugs
    that now hold old debts
    paid for by a life...

    ...what is now
    is insanity
    crazy /
    will someone please stop
    this ride.................................

    smoked up after separation
    trees evaporate like new development
    in a new world / and people
    run the streets and hitch rides on
    public transportation and
    don't even notice that the
    oxygen is in shorter supply than
    before...

    what is now...is
    insanity...and people are
    gagging and don't know why

    capitalism will have you buying
    oxy gen in small increments
    to exist beneath the margins
    of profits belched out by
    smoke stacks of big business...
    and all the "help" programs will
    be cut / and all the poor people
    will perish, simply vanish without
    a headline to say goodbye /

    cause they can't afford to breathe...
    and smokestacks have no love

    ...what IS now
    is insanity...

    jails are becoming the new public
    housing and there's plenty of
    section 8 money to place a brother
    on cell block 8...when he grows
    his own trees for oxy gen to circum vent
    the system...

    the system smells like a dank basement
    with old leather boots, rotted apple trees
    and piss...

    they used to sell to seeds

    so they could grow and bless the
    world with it's future
    of promise despite the broken glass
    and swollen shells

    ...what IS now IS insanity
    can someone please stop this crazy
    ride?...

    ...cause those with the jars of piss have
    stopped selling and big businesses
    are rolling up the poor and toking them
    in smokestacks

    ...please stop this crazy ride.

    N2,

    Slow down mode? what's that? It never rests (and a brother's been trying). Thank you, however, I have yet to amaze.
