My Social Commentary

He sees his dreams disappear into an overwhelming violent
Drug polluted environment
Oh he wanted to be more
But the streets affected his core
And he slipped into oblivion
Yeah, but he had it goin’ on
But that was once upon a time long ago
When he didn’t know
That if you lie with dogs
You become…
That of which you lay with
Play with, go astray with
Finally decay with
I wish this was imaginary
But it’s actual and contemporary
People this is my social commentary
She sees her hopes
Dashed, slashed and crashed
In a world of sex, crimes
Cocaine lines and prison times
Yeah but she was number one 
In her graduating class
Now she has no class
She was queen of the Prom
This girl was the “Bomb”
But she didn’t aspire to her real desire
And finally acquired Satan’s fire
I wish this was imaginary
But it’s actual and contemporary
People this is my social commentary
The family structure
Has us all flustered
It’s a lot about mom…where’s dad?
Now you know this is really sad
Children learning in the streets
Or on a social network
Well that’s where many Demons lurk
Facebook and Twitter are cool
But let’s keep it real, it aint school
People are so low down
They have to reach up
Just to tie their shoelaces
And people are so downlow
They don’t know which way to go
I wish this was imaginary
But it’s actual and contemporary
People this is my social commentary
The political forces
Behave like wild runaway horses
This used to be the land
Of  milk and honey
But the band
Of guilt and money
Are trying to convince us
It’s cloudy, don’t ever look for sunny
It’s too funny, like the comics
Yeah, they control Reaganomics…
I mean economics
1% of these Bitches (witches)
control all the riches
and the 99% which consist of the poor
the working poor and middle class
are still kissin’ Uncle Sam’s Ass
trying to achieve the so called American Dream
Most awake to a nightmare
I wish this was imaginary
But it’s actual and contemporary
People this is my social commentary
The liberals try to push their agenda
Conservatives stamp it “Return to Sender”
Healthcare for all is a great policy
Some folk call it a Great Fallacy
While obesity and Diabetes and other ills
Has people making out their wills
The Justice System
Is a busted system
The law only says “I’m sorry”
When cops kill a “Minority”
Justice isn’t reached
As families march in the streets
Some Priests in the Catholic Church and schools
Lack morality, principles and rules
Students go to college
But the effort and mileage
Don’t get them what they went 
There for in the first place
Now their folks are disgraced
With egg on their face
Payin’ back loans thinkin’
Billy and Lily are a waste
The “Occupant” of the White House
And his “Pack” want their country back
But this is a fact…
This country’s descendants
Are immigrants
That Natives were murdered
Raped and Pillaged
And no village was left standing
They were psyched out
Then wiped out
So the “man” enslaved
Browner and darker Indians
To proceed with his shenanigans
“Yo” they want their country back
Who took it? Who stole it?
If I omitted relevant issues
That may be in your mental library
Pardon Me! This is my Social Commentary!
