    Now it has happened. They won't stop until I drop.
    I'm trying to keep from laughing
    at the new fangled things they got.
    Now orange tan in a can, is the lastest craze.
    Just spray it on and now you
    no longer get orange hands.

    The sun isn't friendly the melanoma isn't worth.
    The risk for the look. Like I was born with at birth.
    It is funny, yet strange that they don't like me.

    For the color of my skin.
    But they try to get the tan I got.
    Hey buddy you need two cans.

    Yes that time of year has come where many with no tans break their necks to get some color. Course with these tans in a can, some try to darken their skin all year round. What will they invent next? I hear you, loud and clear.

    There's a lot of humor in their "Tan can" ...
    if I stay in the shower for hours, I will still have my tan...need I say more?

    "hey buddy you need two cans"
    that was cute...

    but this poem
    hits hard with truth
    such a contradiction
    to hate what you
    want so desperately

    Nice flow hodee,
    Sage

    I peeped you Madd. I liked it. Keep flowing bro. I'm looking for your studio flow. To show us how far Madd can go. Take it to the world, keep it free to swirl this planatary thang. See ya gots me flowing.

    Your right it is also Jealousy and Fright. They are jealous, because we know how to be happy. They must force the flow. Just a little bit and we are in bliss. While they need billions and never get kissed. Not proper. Never happy. So they bring. Others the pain, but soon I do know. All that will change. So don't fret, I ain't done yet. :insane:

    Let me quit.. I cause I ain't the dropper like you Madd. But I can muster some skill.. :donttell:
