    We're on the verge of a third world war
    over nuclear weapons and who has more.
    The President is concerned about his oil wells-
    he wants to get richer
    The man who plays music on the corner for change
    just needs another bottle of liquor.
    Famine in Africa;Earthquake in Iran
    How many dollars a year for LeBraun James
    'cause he's the man?
    Michael Jacksons a petifile and Martha Stewarts a crook
    According to statistics, the bible is still the #1 selling book.
    One sick cow, 100's of people could die
    Jesus' birthday changed the terror alert to high
    Still can't find Osama-finally found Hussein
    We're obviously still selling guns to the criminally insane.
    White cops still beating black men down,
    Sex, drugs, violence, every street, every town.
    Oprah's stilll an angel; Americans live in fear,
    Say your prayers before you fly
    Happy New Year

    It's soon 2 be a new year, but the problems are old.
    There's a so called war on drugs but drugs are still being sold.
    Moreso now than in the 80's when it began.
    Back when Reagan was selling weapons 2 Iran.
    Children are still being abused, people are still homeless...
    While hundreds of millionaires live lavishly in an expensive fortress.
    So much trouble in this land, let alone the world.
    Forget just the holiday season, everyday we must let our neighborly love unfurl.

    Heartfully feel U on this peace piece.

    Nice.
