    I know they’ve tried
    To confine
    My mind
    With time slots
    And spots in a poetry slam
    To compete.
    I know my competition
    Plans to hit re-re-re peat
    On some of their signature pieces
    And although the thesis’s
    Don’t add up to the lifestyle
    Somehow you’ll still manage to be wooo’ed
    That’s why it’s necessary for me
    To be UNLEASHED
    So I can post up on the mic and push soul food
    Cause yo eatin’ habits might not kill you but ignorance will
    So don’t be fooled by Ignore rants that get shrouded with skill
    Cause they can prescribe pain pill poetry
    But I am he who comes to heal.
    So if you feel a burnin’ sensation
    When I step on stage and speak
    Don’t confuse it for heat
    That’s just me spittin’ lighter fluid
    To warm up that conviction under yo seat
    Cause medium rare souls
    Get detoured from heaven at the cross roads
    And it don’t matter how many TV’s you put in the magnum
    You rode in on
    God’s more concerned with tha order yo homes in
    So I’m tryin’ to find ways to suggest some spiritual spring cleanin’
    That’s why I’ve been thinkin’ of showin’ up to venues with brooms and mops
    Or maybe I’ll start mixin’ scriptures with seeds of forget me nots
    Cause some of these false poets should; but won’t stop
    Speakin’ of revolution when they ain’t changed
    in order to be reborn yo old man must first be slain
    and I came with pens sharper than ginsu knives
    just to be a self sacrifice
    but they’d rather confine
    my mind
    to time slots
    and spots
    in SLAMS
