" So What Makes You Tick "... ???

For Some It's Simply... Being FIT...
And Living Life To RAISE Their Kids...

But Some Live Life To Hurt Their Kin... ?!?
And Follow Paths That Lead To SINS... !!!!

SEVEN... Just Like In The Film...

" Sloth, Wrath, Greed and Lust,
Pride, Envy and Gluttony... "

The Film Was... SICK... !!!
And Ended BADLY For Brad Pitt... !!!

But SHOWED The Things That Make Some TICK... !!!!!
And That's The TRICK of A... " GOOD FLICK "...
You May Think... " What's The Point of This ? "

Well It's To SHOW That Written Scripts NOW Make ME TICK... !!!
Through... Sands of Time.....................................................................
By Using Rhyme To KEEP Me From...
Those VITAL Signs That'll SIGNIFY My Life's FLATLINED.
My Life's Design Is Intertwined...
With Wordplay Built To FUEL Young Minds...
Who HAVE SO MUCH To SEE In Life... !!!!!

A LOVING Wife And... HAPPY Child... !!!
Who FLOWS Through Life Just Like The Nile... !!!
NOT A Life Like... Paedophiles... !!!!!!!!!!!
Who CLEARLY Live Life... In DENIAL... !!!!

See Things Like THIS Make MANY Tick... !!!
Then They RESORT To... FURTHER Sins... !!!

I Now Compile... Poetic Files...
To Show That WORDS When Used With... STYLE... !!!
Can HELP You TICK And FEED Our Kids With POSITIVE Things... !!!!
NOT A Life of DEADLY SINS... Blood SPILLING Or Young KILLING... !?!
DON'T Be LAZY USE Your Mind..............
Try USING Things Within Your Sight To Help You Write About Mans' CRIMES...

By This I Mean Women And Men And Sadly Now Some YOUNG Children... !!!
Pick UP A Pen Or START To Type Then Use Your BRAIN And Use Insight...
And Spend Some Time........................................................................................

Searching DEEP Inside Your Mind...
Writing FACTS... Is A Good Track... !!!
But Fiction Made From CLEVER Diction...
Can Help Your Life Tick Over NICE... !!!!!

DON'T Sell Your Words To CORPORATE Guys...
UNLESS The Price Helps You... SURVIVE... !!!

KEEP OWNERSHIP Through COPYRIGHT... !!!
So CASH KEEPS COMING When You Die...
And HELPS Your CHILDREN To LIVE LIFE... !!!

REMEMBER... THAT...
DON'T Sign Contracts To Make FAST CASH... !!!
That's For THOSE Who Like To... RAP... !!!
On BANGING Tracks That Make Folks CLAP... !!!!!

KEEP YOUR LYRICS WELL PROTECTED... !!!
DON'T RUSH IN To... NEW Collectives... !!!

UNTIL YOUR WORDS Are Somewhere SAFE...
In A Place That HOLDS... YOUR Name... !!!!!
THAT'S The Way To... PLAY The GAME... !!!

When You've DONE THIS...
Let Your Words Then Tick And Tock And ROCK The Spot... !!!!!
Then Let Your Money GROW Like Plots...
Through ROYALTIES That Will NEVER Stop... !!!!!!

See THAT'S One Way to Make Your Life...
One That Makes For HAPPY Days And HOLIDAYS...
And A Life Where SIN'S Then Sent On A LONG Hike........................ !!!!!!
I'm Simply Saying If You REALLY LOVE To WRITE... !?!
And Have The SKILLS To Then RECITE...
REJECT PRIDE And STUPID Crimes... !!!
And Start To Write What's In Your Mind...

And Then ENLIST Through Use of Scripts...
A Way With WORDS of YOUR Design....
YOUR Style of Prose DOESN'T Have To Rhyme... !!!

That's Just The Way I'm Now Inclined...
USE Your Mind And You Will Find...
A Place Where You Just SEE GREEN LIGHTS... !!!!!

DRIVE Right Through And Make STRONG MOVES... !!!
DON'T EVER QUIT... LIVE Life STAY FIT...

Then REMEMBER SEVEN And The DEADLY SINS... !!!!!
Then ASK Yourself..............................................................
