let’s face facts of life ....
Oh Father! someone had said ..
give me wisdom to do what I should,
the intelligence not to do what I shouldn't
but sixth sense to know the difference
or such words to this effect.....

she also answers
we at least get water,
bigger companies..

see I wasn't corrupt all my life
now like a mad man
I’m wasting time on the Internet
when you see all my friends are rolling
in cars, money, acs ...
executive class travel
going for Olympics
and what not

because corruption is that oil
that makes the engine of wealth
move forward

you be like me
and will become a silly guy
writing even sillier poetry ..
so as none can resolve..
since millions years gone
let corruption stay
one day as it bursts like cancer
remember me
you may....

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


even in them days the flow was the flow
legit is hard

the sweet treats are an addiction
and to balance to survive enough
without becoming poisoned enough

that trapeze

everyone wants to be tame as lions
but even I drink Coca Cola
and save my money at Wal Mart

I dont buy gas anymore just pass it
and I spend time outside watching
storms and clouds still like some
beautiful dreamer while my friends
work hard for cars and toys and homes

but I have enough to keep me happy

Thank You

and you have company in me
still surviving..
as you can now see..
