    When We stop just scuffling and trying to get ahead

    And take a good look at ourselves instead

    We'll see as so many great ones before us have seen

    Hold'em up, don't get uppity! Look into what i really mean

    There's a trickster working to make us warp our own mind

    To the degree that we won't even be able to find

    That there's no need to get a head, 'cause we've already got one

    When we don't use the one we've got that's when we've got none

    That is none working for us and we become people insane

    Like chickens with their heads cut off, running all out of our lane

    Discombobulated,

    Yeah, That's what i said

    Walking around thinking we're alive,

    While already DEAD! :uzi:

    I'm liking this one, Rasheed. This is one of the reasons you are poet of the week. Keep giving it to us, straight with no chaser.
