He’s a cold hearted and
A mean person to be around.
His eyes were always
Black and dark
No soul or heart

When he smiles at you
It makes you want
To cringe up
Into a ball

His boys would
Do his light work for him
Selling packs of drugs,
And bootlegging liquor

But his woman?

You’ll expect to be hanging
With a creep like him.

She was beautiful.
Her short brown hair
Would sway when she’d
Turn and smile
To the crowd.

“Hello boys?”
She flirted

"Get ova he!"
