Sometimes you got to
be tired of being tired
tired of being tired
of being tired
of being so **** tired
and get up off yo ***
and get some rest
and act....

before another young
child gets killed
gets killed gets killed
gets killed killed
in the hood
not by those wearing white
hoods but ******* in
the hood
that act...up

get yo *** up and get some rest
rest yo *** up because
we don't have time to race
time to race time to race
time to race an issue
of the hood that
red don't like blue
and black don't like black
because of the difference of

get yo *** up
and stop being tired of
being tired
and reacting
reacting reacting
AFTER another life is lost

dead flowers can't
inhale the exhalations
of stale rally cries
locked in your *** until
the garden is stepped on

get some rest.

Feeling you Verb..

So thru the eyes of the generation now. They see that they were failed somehow. So the frustration builds and turns and spills on me.

You can't talk with the youth of today. Stay out of my business. They don't care what you say. Stay out of my life. My solution is blast the truth. Don't you know you don't know the youth. Of this land, carrying the hand of our children. Drugs is the base. Guns are the rule. Both combined turns a genius into a fool.

So sweep the streets like a water truck could. Coming thru like a bug abatement truck would. I think there was something more than bug spray. Causing the turn of decay. Can't be real.

The country does research on flowers and plants. Going to the moon. Sex life of ants. But there is no money to give mental health. Change a few ghetto's into someplace with more wealth.

Looking out of fish bowl lens. Seeing all the world spin. Without you. Water getting low. To much air you know will kill the fish. So they splish and splash.. splurge and slash fighting each other for the thing that sustains life. Money.
