(997) A Pimp - Poem by Melvina Germain

A man with the capability of being a great leader,
a preacher, motivator even a teacher.

Instead he forgets about all of his worth,
and becomes the scum of the earth.

He can make changes for he has a smart mind,
become a great worker for the good of mankind.

These men do sometimes change for the best.
They rise to the occasion and take the test.

We must give respect where respect is due,
for a pimp can change and be as good as you.
