American Taliban: The Money Thing
I know, knew
you like money;
I hear the word ''money''
everywhere and in every wave length
and IP -internet protocol- and every www
com, net, biz, and mainly org, gov and public
tv, radio they bee itches about it all day long
in bars, cafe shops, school, parties, buses,
any one in the states want money, or his money.
It same damn thing for a taliban from the east,
Do you think,
he sels opium for fun?
I know also that you like woman
and woman you like man
in between likes in between -sometimes
they switch or act like
double agent or a viral virus
you do not have the key, you get the flue-
so, a taliban man likes
naturtally more than one woman,

and get me out from the peach.
in the states,
some communities are still
and having a woman
is like having a cow.
and i will bet you
if you tell a woman, in the states,
i want to milk you she will smile.
