    When I get older

    I want platinum teeth to
    pawn so I can feed my family
    I'm tired of mama working two and a half
    jobs / and still can't pay the bills /
    light man threatening to put us in the dark/
    whatever happened to sunny days?
    whatever happened to the 100 ways of
    ...being happy?

    When I get older

    I want my eyes surrounded by
    big ole a$$e$ / like those cats on
    videos...block my vision from cats
    begging on corners...life is
    hard for them too I suppose

    When I get older

    I want Maybachs and yellow canary
    10 karat rocks...and have brothers on the block
    go "[email protected]" so loud that
    I can't hear the hunger pangs in the hood sing
    broken melodies that sicken Oak tree leaves...
    leaving us with no shade from the poverty
    fall out in the inner city

    When I get older

    I want to be president of the USA!!!
    So I can pillage sovereign countries
    and rob them of their natural resource so
    I can begin to control the oil market and
    make dumb excuses for killing innocent people
    and have all you folks believe the lie and assist in
    making planes go where they aren't supposed to
    and make the presidential voting process into an
    illiusion (and I don't even have to be a magician)
    and spy on my people and claim it's in the best interest
    of my country cause see I want to know what everyone is talking
    about, I want to destroy the constitution and rape the people
    of civil liberties and do it smoother than Goldie talks to his Bit...
    I mean ladies of the night.. I want to make this democracy seem as if
    everything is alright...

    When I get older

    I want to still be able to dream.

    a quick write, yet deep to make one think

    definitely a blatantly corrupt presidential role model, huh?
