It's Everywhere


Free style walkin shoes make bare feet obsolete.
latchkey kids dumpster divin to eat
Cop on their beat turns the heat up on the street.
A prison cell awaits you if you steal that treat
It's everywhere, it's everywhere
Destitution is an institution
The verdict came in for the prosecution
No stay of execution
It's everywhere
It's everywhere
Take a look around you it's everywhere

Mom's begs with her kids
works their regular beat
One eye remains open
there'll be no sleep
Wrapped in torn blankets on down n out street
Tonights weather forecast
Nobody cares
Take a look around you
it's everywhere

Super groupers sell us this seasons hair.
Their tickets got punched by plastic millionaires
Peace is on the far horizon.
Tonight's bloody moon is risin.
Bone-deep in for the kill.
Can you feel the chill
It's everywhere

Hit the ground
smell the sound
Shylock will be by
to collect his fleshy pound
Mcfancy jobs are waiting for you
They'll work your salt silly til your lips turn blue
Scat Master orders you 'get down on your knees'
What's his ain't yours still you're beggin please
Makes you shout to the devil one aberrant prayer.
Take a look around you
it's everywhere

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
