    You laid off so many city teacher
    the day before Thanksgiving
    Arms folded on the News grinning
    What’s so funny?

    You reduce the school budget
    In the city schools ONLY.
    And send those funds to yeah there
    To build there city school
    Grinning like a checker cat
    What’s so funny ?

    There is no time
    To become emotional
    Cry and wail
    Boo woo
    This is the time
    To become even more focus
    And logically think this threw

    So much money have been wasted
    Paying this Governor salary
    It is like having a hateful clown
    In the political party.

    What is the point they trying to make
    As I observe for clues
    What is truly there objective?
    Why are they so cruel ?
    The demon working overtime
    As I watch the News
    Arms folded just a laughing
    I see nothing funny

    how can they kill the dreams of higher learning
    and take the only means of living with no job
    is hunger and sleepless nights
    how can they and laugh
    nothing funny here about destruction!

    i'm feeling this deep
    make me wanna say things not sweet
    not funny !

    Indeed there is nothin' funny......when teachers are jobless
    when their job is priceless
    We already have less
    Of the teachers willing to teach in the urban areas much less
    Low offs for the ones that are willing........our kids will become choiceless

    " Why go to school when it's over crowded?
    Why go there when on the streetz we can stay rowdy?
    It pays better.....it will support me
    Therefore I can support my whole **** family "

    This is crazy
    But these are the thoughts that will go through our children's mind.......help me
    Because I see nothin' funny
    In a situation like this.........it's wrongly
    appointed pressure on the kids and the same teachers that helped me
    It's nothin funny
