Hair On Fire - Poem by D.M. Barber

when theres a fight
to my despite
i am the one remembered
but if im winning, i'll be grinning
and soon you'll be dismembered

coz im a pric
with a nasty temper
trying to make a name
but fighting in the bronx
aint a childrens game

school tought me to fail
and the cops tought me to run
but now they can not touch
for im who weilds the gun



....unfinished
