Ima legacy -as its written in this time of depression – better just say recession – no more lives to live in this holy world - bump it – corruption can never really be bought – only taken – but I got greed – I want cheese – I want cheddar – I want butter – I want bread – not white but wheat like roots from the streets – I’m black but ma skin color don’t mean spit – I got a good enough chance like da new president – and yes we all toss it like salad – shred it like paper – rip it like a dress or where it like make up – reality money makes da world go round but in an opposite way- Damn! Today was a bad day – absolute a good day gone come – destiny awaits for da saints not da fallen ones – U.N.I.T.Y – what we want what we need –The law we have breached – Flat line – deceased – dead like the son of a mother- forced to take dat shot at war – so he lives no more – shackled by theses braces – faces- dawn that America rises shall shine no more – understand these times – understand this crime – dignity of the struggle should always be so divine – recognize these debts – recognize these bets – Obama’s now in office so put dat S on his chest – yes – superman – its time to save the U.S. – like a youngin child we gotta take baby steps – all mighty – like a dolla – ringin by da collar – senators get a bonus while families tryna holla ….
Did you see this change was made – not livin for tomorrow but livin, for today – why oh why – we hit our down fall – cried wolf too many times – no longer lookin for dollas – but sadly searchin for dimes

 Okay, you killed this one. Absolutely amazing. I'm putting all my hope that this piece gets published. This is too good. Outstanding. I like that dialect that comes out in this. You are one  hell  of a writer. Keep on writing. And please, if you have time, check out my work. Comments and ratings are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
