MONOPOLY

Were broke when were not working properly/and to get a fix we must buy from the monopoly/

the bankers currency is fake, but I play the game properly just so I can pay for property/

the police stay on top of me, making sure to follow rules or go to jail when I do not agree/

tired of the monotony, the bored stop playing but its a gamble like the lottery/

this games been made into a mockery/

but if the pieces come together theres a chance that we can stop and see we've got the keys/

POWER

Are we all powerless in this system run by cowards with no vow of honesty and no prowess?/

honestly, show me the weakest person in the room and I'll show you the loudest/

the quiet are the proudest/actions speak louder than words, my hands are calloused/

fits of rage with fists that hold pen tips to pages as I write wit with hopes of making changes/

our time's the strangest with nameless mimes that are voiceless electing brainless choices/

if the boisterous girls and boys of our loins join forces unlike divorces, we can change courses/

no more driving porches with 300 horse power/ we need more natural energy sources now/

of course the poorest of the poor have a short list of what's more important to them/

like food, shelter and healthcare/ as our moods welter from abuse and welts and no welfare/

sometimes we may think 'who the hell cares?' as we make our way down hell's stairs

FIRST READING

this is literally the first time I ever performed in front of anyone besides like 1 or 2 people. I am all about lyrics and writing, not neccesarily performing, but it's pretty cool. I should have done a better job remembering my writens and could have had a bit more stage presence, but oh wel.... Also, it was done as the opening act for a local hip-hop expose so it wasn't exactly the right scene but for a first time it was aight. Oh, and it was taped in the very back of the room, where people wern't listening as much and so there is a lot of noise but most of the people were actually listening
