    she had to leave cause
    rosefire told her secret
    sent a thousand gasps
    every man she knew
    was after her ***
    so fine as she stood
    chocolate brown like warm syrup
    with eyes that made men confess things
    beyond their own souls
    rosefire was something to behold
    she walked with such a sway
    that 19 ordinances were passed
    to keep her fine *** off the street
    between noon and midday
    her touch brought claps of heaven
    made many brothas coo
    she had skills that would cause tears
    while she worked them
    through and through
    rosefire lived for today
    in many ways that made her beauty
    all the more timeless
    at best the desire was just to be near her
    catch a wift if her perfume
    for those who went further
    rosefires passions would consume
    but one day the earth seemed strange
    clouds refused to leave
    paperboy carried the news
    rosefire had to leave
    the story created a firestorm
    whatever could it mean
    everyone gathered at town hall
    examining the scene
    legions filed out in tears
    bent over full of grief
    rosefire had to leave
    cause she told her secret
    infected 1000 brothas and counting with h.i.v.

    ***wrap it up***

    Now you know you told the story!

    To quote the magnificent "TLC" RIP Lisa, "Don't go chasing
    waterfalls stick to the valleys and the streams you are you used to...sometimes you moving to fast!
    A powerful message, with a poignant undertone, tastefully done.
    AS ALWAYS MY BROTHERMAN...
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE ALWAYS!
