"A friend in need is a friend indeed, a friend with weed is better."
"Then he put on forty-two and a half tabs of brown acid that he still had from his Woodstock days. She saw all kinds of colors. Lemon yellow, orange orange, cherry red, kaleidoscope eyes. The world was on fire."

I carved a name
in the bark of a tree
to which it became
part of our guarantee.

But it was cut down
with only the consent
of the people from town.
And so you went

to find nothing at all
only wait for it be done
but witnessed rainfall
in the presence of the sun.

We planted a new tree
in the midst of the town
no longer making a guarantee
that it won't be cut down.

Hip Hop is dead... so put your ear to the dirt and listen to that underground.
