U think u know but u have no clue
This is the place I call my home
The South Side of Chicago
Where bullets fly freely
Un-Be-Live-A-Ble
Now we call home
Something strange...
CHI-RAQ!?!?!?!?
........whoa!

This small poem is very strong, especially the play on words, turning the word "unbelievable" into "un-be-live-a-ble" which takes on a completely different meaning. You imply that the place you call your home is also a place where many fear for their lives. This is true about many living situations, and I am sure that this poem is one that many people can relate to.
