Jive Turkey - Poem by Yoni Assis

“He’s a jive turkey”
That’s what they say
“He’s a jive turkey”
“Fool's gonna pay”

I see you dealing drugs
Acting like a thug
No regard for the law
No respect for your ‘ma

Strapped to the gills
People taking to the hills
You ain’t no hope
Just one big joke

Where’d you get those threads?
Who’d you leave dead?
Who’d you rape tonight?
Who’d you get to fight?

Running numbers is your scheme
Pimpin’ ho’s, your dream
Getting high is your scene
Burning brain cells on the green

Oh, look, he got busted
What happened to those boys you trusted?
20-25 is your sentence
Plenty of time to pay your penance

I know you’re my brother, but your life is so murky
At the end of the day you’re nothing but a jive ass turkey!
