    they say you only meet 3 special people in your life
    3 wishes, 3 knocks, 3 kisses
    they also say the sea is full of fishes
    or is that fish?
    is that wish getting granted
    is my lamp getting lit
    if not, i must go forth and man-handle this

    they say nothing's free
    but, love don't cost a thing
    they say let it burn
    they say the grass is green

    is it greener over there?
    with more fresh air
    do i love you?
    why yes, of course i care

    they say love is blind
    they say eye for an eye
    didn't we take our sight away?
    what about stevie
    and what about Ray?

    they say don't speak
    unless you're spoken to
    they say, speak up!
    i can't hear you

    so, i'll speak crystal clear from now on
    i'll say word is bond
    they said practice what you preach
    and learn what you teach
    so, i watch where i reach
    and wash my whites with bleach

    simple as simon says, rhymes in red
    does that mean "christ said"
    have you seen what christ read
    when christ was led?
    some people are scared
    why bother the sleepn dead

    Yes, we have to check who "they" are anyway, listening to the wrong words can surely lead us astray. I appreciate your words.

    And then WE find out is was all a big Lie
    They were using us as they bridge to get By
    Content to see US Die
    While ignoring our Cry

    Well the "they" has become dem(them)
    and I'm gonna speak of dem sin
    and i'm gonna tell my daddy what dey did to we
    and my daddy gonna take care of me,
    make it safe to be
    All that he is and mommy, same way wit she

    So it's time to break this spell,
    I mean, bust outta this shell
    It's time We join forces
    and take this fight to the source of
    time to change up the courses
    and Restore Life to dem what seem to be corpses


    I enjoyed this piece! :welldone:

    us vs. them and we vs. they

    the war is on
    which side are you on?
    if it's mine, let's build soldier!
    Our general has many names
    Our president is intelligent enough not to send us into a losing war
    Our "God" is a virtous being
    We shall not lose!

    I AM Sha'iyn
