Pop pills, extort bill$

Snort lines, inject toxic rhymes

Deal sealed with the Devil

Playing field is level


Fued between good and evil

Wages on and on and on

Can you feel the NΦ¡$∑?

Of a bullet

Rip, rip, rip through your boys

Like Okonkwo's machete

Can you feel the BOYS?

Pop, pop, pop through your girls

Exploding, like a dream, deferred?

Can you feel the JOYS?

Of life, or do you roll...

TIIIIIIDE, biding your time

Until the next current

Swishes by?




...The Silence?

Of dejected pride

Singled out in a crowd

Wishing for

A quiet invite?
