    STREET PLAYERS

    The jungle creed
    Says the strong must feed
    On any prey at hand
    So branded as beast
    Vickie sat down at feast
    And learned that her prey
    Was man.

    By Donald Goines

    Street Players 2001-2002 or,
    The Response from Dre
    By Andre Austin ã

    The new jungle is concrete
    The strong maintaining a grip on the streets
    Or else they shrink into the sand
    Players feed on shrimp
    Runaways, drug addicts get pimped
    And the Mob keeps them on the land

    Pimps what are we to do with you
    Soliciting customers for sex is what u do

    A sand box is good
    A coffin made from wood
    Cover it up with concrete
    Slaying you down from head to feet

    Then throw it into the sea
    So there will never be
    Another Pimp, Player and Hustler
    For the community to see

    This poem was taken from Donald Goines book “Street Players” (1973) in which he dedicated to his daughter (? Unbelievable). Donald Goines was a Detroit, Michigan thug who turned writer after spending time in the Jackson State Prison. Goines was unable to get out of the street life and was gunned down by another thug.

    The movie “Deep Cover” sampled from this poem through the mouth of actor Lawrence Fishbone in the early 1990’s.
