Rain - Poem by Ben Moubarak

Rain is not part of today's forecast
Yesturday was drier than the last
Making money was easier in the past
We need more than change fast

All we got is stupid pocket change
Bullshit hustlers in poverty's range
Money dissapearing like strange
Business became a poor exchange

Two plus two became only two
Lucky if you can keep it with you
This is what the grind turned into
Congested like a severe sinus flu

No doctor to go see immediately
The cost adds up exponentially
The only therapy is more money
Lost mysteriously in this economy

Money on my mind but for how long
Money hard to find even with a thong
Even the blind sees something's wrong
This kind of shit can't last for long

The rich won't help so we turn to drugs
Like a dog's yelp so we earn like thugs
Learning to sell shit to new born bugs
Hustling the streets like thorn cops

This weak economy breeds strong criminals
These medieval days became our essentials
Forcing evil ways to our fundamentals
Worshipping the devil became biological
