    Ring the alarm! up at about 6:66
    Went to bed at about 9:99

    Gotta start my day off now
    Slip on my robe warm up the stove

    fix an early mornin' cup o' tea
    No Earl Grey I got that Green Leaf

    I drink it before I brush my teeth
    with my no-fluoride paste

    then I wash my crusty face
    It's gettin' late so I take a bird bath

    Sing a song and I splash!
    while the squirrels laugh

    The bees and the birds pass
    I get dressed in all black
    button up shirt creased slacks

    i got incense, oils, kufis, hats
    books, movies, jewelry, no crack

    after 3 hours of moving my stock
    i'm off the block
    headed to my part-time job

    I'm hard at work at a construction site
    until I see no sunlight

    hammering, drilling, posting
    hoping my check is right
    time for night school two classes a night

    until I get a degree or even a certificate
    I call them "slave papers" legitimate

    I plan on being a physician or a mustashafee
    and mastering my own language

    Sometimes I get alone
    hearing echoes in my home

    Every now and then I date
    but, it's hard to find the right mate

    I'm getting older on the outside
    and on the inside i'm a child
    runnin' wild like a juvenile barely 19
    I've seen a lot but, not all I see

    and even as i type these things
    Time waits for no man
    well, will time wait for me

    Time flies, regardless of whether you're having fun or not, we have to make the most of the time we've got for before you know it, the day is done. Looks like you're climbing to higher heights, poet, props to ya.

    I agree it seems like there's no free time. But if there's no free time, then you're not wasting your life and you're doing to the best with every breath God gives you. I like to look at it like that. I enjoyed this joint & keep flowing!
