the legend


The Flash!


it appeared more then nine times like a camera shot,
except w/the impact of a cinterblock,
less then 14 but mo den 12,13 in the ghetto on the 2 way cona block,

sister in the driva seat, momma as the passenga,
im lookin from the back to see what's happ'nin' cuz,

my sista starts cryin, im like wohw,
moms like switch sides,
as she yank some sense into me by yankin on my clothes.

right den time froze, i walked about the guy that did the injury,
looked at the face of the guy that was taking time to pray to god
for his sins of forgery, adultry, and intamacy.
and im thinkin hey i know dis dude,
call it what u want but the universe switch zones,
so the bullets would avoid leaving the chamber and the assaulta rewinded situations like a vcr and tv tube.

no lie i saw it in my dream awoke that night,
was leavin w/fam saw it like it was in my dream so i ran to dem,
and was like dont fight it'll only end in strife, and stress
then i saw the flash! ........ and dropped.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
