    Common sense
    Doesn't make sense
    If it doesn't make cents
    So called words of wisdom
    From slaves of a different sense
    The transition from steel chains
    To diamond chains
    Was apparently all the change needed
    And since we have a little change
    What's the point of more change?
    We're close to have a black man in a powerful position
    So why change our position?
    Discrimination is seems to be a thing of a past
    So we can let the little things pass
    Because we can't see the future if we concentrate on the past
    Right?
    S**t we know our rights
    We know when we're right
    We can read and write
    Know our left from our right
    So why fight?
    We don't need to hear another speech
    About exercising our freedom of speech
    I heard the Obama's speech
    I like what he promotes
    I'm pro-black so, yeah, he has my vote
    Something about more money for me
    That's enough for me
    It's common sense
    It makes sense to me
    And you know common sense
    Doesn't make sense
    If it doesn't make cents

    and...

    ...to the extent
    that it does...or does not make sense
    i relent
    common sense
    isn't the sense most people sense
    in paying the rent
    or monies spent
    coz bootleg cost less
    and less is more for my cents
    again, i relent
    in exercising my...common sense
    about the sarcastic suspense
    of this sense
    when bent
    on the propagation
    of world sense
    but this was intense


    let the river flow.
    (and no...i don't do bootleg)
