    T.V

    It now dictates
    What I am suppose
    To be,

    I am the ho you the
    Pimp,
    Big houses fancy cars
    now make you a star?


    I am now viewed
    As a woman with
    A big ***, so now
    I have lost my class

    and you have the
    nerve to ask
    come on baby
    Back that thang up!

    Shack that money maker

    Video’s TV shows
    With half naked booties
    Men running around with
    Their fake mask “talking
    About can I get the rooty
    tooty special,

    “Yeah TV” got my kids
    your kids their kids thinking
    blinking on the bling bling

    and the saying goes
    ain't got a thing if you ain't
    Got that swing

    do watt do watt





    But come on player
    Let’s just get real
    We all know the deal

    You talking street
    hustling shot calling
    Slinging money you
    ain’t got yet,

    So what message you sending?
    Me? Grab a mic pull my
    Pants down below my waist
    Turn a cap around backward
    And start rapping about what?

    Do I hear you talking about
    Some education and dedication
    To the beautiful thing you do have

    Life!

    Do I see you mentoring those
    Kids on the block that’s looking
    At you with a glee in their eyes
    Wanting be a B-baller like you

    You ain’t telling them the real deal,
    You talking about stealing, playing
    As many women as you can, shooting
    Looting, polluting your set with violence
    And there is no alliance for a truce yet

    The reds still fighting the blue and you
    Trying to dictate what I am suppose to
    Do.

    “what happen to that boy”

    “what happen to that boy”

    TV





    Like the Crosby show, telling me this
    Is the typical black family

    I don’t think so

    Most are dysfunctional, maybe
    Got one parent rarely two.
    Struggling to know who you are
    By the contents that peeps within

    And so you see

    When, there is no cooperation
    Dedication and consideration
    Maybe a little love in sight

    Then there is no vision and
    The only decision is to follow
    The TV’s life,

    coming from
    What the streets dictates you
    Getting a cop out rate


    it does not educate our
    children to be better than
    What they see. But this is
    the world now through the
    eyes of a TV

    Be positive, be strong, and be
    Diligent and have some respect
    Teach our children there is something
    Better to follow

    “God”, most have not heard of him yet!

    Ladies but some clothes back own,
    Demand more then what you’re getting
    Some Respect! I think you been forgetting
    Cause the flash of the cash got your mind
    Singing, harmony you can’t keep



    But look into the eyes of the lie and the
    Truth you will peep,

    Knowledge is power and something you can
    Keep, so pick up a book instead of a gun, you
    Might be surprised when the course is run, wisdom
    Has begun

    Better yet! Just turn the TV off…

    Woah, this was so hot I'm sweating. You really took me there, had me start thinking. Seeing that I'm one of the younger poets out here I know I look at alot of TV and listen to lots of radio but after reading this I have a new found knowledge of it. I think I will look at some Good Times, though, because it is real and talks about the struggles we really go though in real life. Feel me? The flow was deep and heart felt.

    Much Love,
    Foxy..............
