    Negro had the nerve to walk up to me and say
    “baby doll don’t hate the Player hate the game”
    Brother don’t you know?
    Step up and realize YOU are the game!
    The joke of the past 2 Centuries.
    Your game ain’t new, It’s older than my grannie’s hamhock recipe.
    I heard it all before
    seen it time and time again
    learn, realize, check your self.
    Your game is played out triflin
    and un original
    The gold tooth
    the leisure suit
    The pimp daddy wanna be feather in your
    frayed edge hat
    I can’t do much else but laugh
    I can’t feel angry
    only pity at the sorry excuse you turned out to be
    No my friend without the clue
    I don’t hate the Player or his game
    I can’t even say that I hate you
    What I mind most of all
    is the waste of the potential
    all the man you could have been
    The promise of the future that might have been.
    All the things you can not see behind those dark Shaft sunglasses that even Richard Roundtree wouldn’t have been caught wearing in 1973
    I think of you and your game and cry

    Natasha :D

    an oldie but goodie .........had this pet peeve for quite sometime !

    Don't be too hard

    If it wasn't from the wannabe playas I wouldn't have a **** thing to write about--they provide Bernie Mac entertainment for me--of course I know they ain't funny worth a **** in real life, but when I see one, I start laughing and then I think about the 6 months it took me to outgrow that and wonder I didn't get smacked silly--Amun-Ra

    :D
