I AM THAT MOUSE

Rookie (Detroit, MI)

Listen Closely


lying thus far has got me this far
now what bar has been lifted...

you seem to be looking at me
as if i wasn't gifted...

i'm talented at it & you can't combat it
so you make me out as wrong..

you love my lines & my verbal land mines
and you've always played along...

so don't act shocked or come at me cocked
and ready to shoot at will...

you've listened thus far and it got me this far
you must not recognize my skill...

To war and arms I fly.
