Of bounds; set the standards around
What others cannot
Trouble inbound; bein followed
Back to the roots, the home,
the starting point
disjointed from the hip
The solution ain’t a chip off the shoulder
Gimme your nation’s borders
I’ll blow em up
the killer’s shy, too much to
overcome aggression before
repression ends your playing session
depression brings the 70s back
in an unwelcome retrogression.
a digression, bite the bullet
for your valentine,
all whine with no cheese;
all cheese with no wine
the finest crimes performed
with a smile on your face; gun in hand
shoot off the wedding band, understand
before you go off to the witness stand.
the bedroom’s a no-mans land; brand of
humour so bland it’s banned;
big band bunny hoppin,
market’s fresh, drummers dropping like
chefs being chopped,
new policies adopt
adept leaders, young readers? nah
Too much hope lies in the well-bred, well-fed,
Young breeders, weak in thought like
They a big shot with his foot caught
up in his ass, self-centered on the past
Charge ahead like he ain’t got a blind spot
Side-swiped like the look on his mugshot.
No future promised from the promised-land,
Only sure thing, the American dream:
Can of beans, lean wife frightened to speak
Out of turn. “When will she learn?
Rights don’t extend to everyone.
Founding fathers never stood on
crowded around the sad scene: good young Christian boys,
family employed, father deployed
five souls in one house with
no place they call home
five people annoyed they live
in a void devoid of the joy to live
in the land of the free, but no freedom
to express - can we address the obsession
of taking what we don’t own?
Anger learned homegrown,
Can’t condone what they don’t know
Only comfort in the combat zone;
They ain’t the target, they ain’t alone in
A geographical zone
Who has it worst? Not us, so why care?
Attitude’s the richest when finances are in
