    I tell you now, girl if I happen to be walking today
    And some man watches me as I pass
    Opens up his mouth yelling his sweet obcenities
    I am going to come kick your a**.

    Now I don't mind it at all
    If you keep your business floating like unimportant debris.
    But the less that you respect yourself
    The less the fools feel they should respect me.

    I don't mind you having a man
    But stop claiming relationships you're not really in.
    How are you his woman??
    Oh he introduced you as his girfriend??

    I can't get a good man
    Cause a woman like you spoils him for the bunch
    How can he really please me
    If all you taught him to do was hunch?

    Stop telling this man he's the ****.
    So what if he can get and stay hard.
    I'm gone kick your butt if my man asks me
    To buy him some weed on MY visa card.

    Let him do something for himself,
    He has got to use his own hands and mind.
    I understand about serving your man,
    But what's gone happen when you don'y have time.

    Just let one more man come up
    And say that he'd like to hit it.
    I ain't gonnna giggle like you just did.
    I am gonna find your wig and split it.

    Don't let him him hit you no more.
    He is starting to get the wrong idea.
    You gonna get that man killed
    Trying that same bull**** up in heah.

    I know everyone wants to be loved.
    So I guess that's what you're trying to do.
    But you can't buy a man, or sex him enough
    To make him do what you should do first, boo.

    Don't accept his calls from jail.
    Did he even call you when it was free??
    Keep on doing that dumb mess
    You gone have to answer to me.

    I know you want a man and all
    But you will not die from it's thirst.
    Do me and the world a favor.
    Start loving yourself first.

    You said that!

    You said all of it--unfortunately you are right--this speaks a bunch of truth and some of it isn't pleasant at all, but its real--Amun-Ra

    Eternal,
    I don't think I've ever read
    your work before tonight.
    I assure it won't be the last.
    This piece is definitely hittin'
    home for me. Glad you could
    put it in ink. Keep it real!
