Fake or True ... ???
Which One Are You ... ?

Are You Simply A FAKE ...
Who's Just On The Make ... ?

Or ...
Are You EVEN WORSE ... ?

A Snake On The Make ... !?!

Whose Purpose In Life ...
Is To Have The WHOLE CAKE ... !?!

So ....
What Makes People FAKE ... ???

In Some It's This Simple ...
When They Look In Your Face ...
Their Pupils ... " DILATE " ... !!!

But ... What About Those ...
Who Have Eyes Like A Snake .... ?

Don't Make The ... "ASS-UMPTION"
These People Are ... Fake ... !!!

It's Actions They Take ...
That'll PROVE If They're Fake ... !!!!!

The Presumption You've Made ...
May Mean ... YOU ARE FAKE ... !?!

Presumption Is Always ...
A Fake Fools Mistake ... !!!

DON'T Presume That You Know ...
What A Person Will Show ... !!!

Cos' Fake People Hide Behind ...
Their ..... " BRAVADO " ...... !!!!!

Rather Like CERTAIN Poets ...
Hide Behind Their EGO ... !!!

Or Rappers Who Hide Behind ...
Gangsta Type Flows ...

Which Just Goes To Show ...
How Little They Know ... !!!

Gangsters DON'T Talk ...
When They're Ready To BLOW ... !!!!!

You Won't Get A Chance ...
To Say Bye When You Go ... !!!

FAKENESS And EGO ...
DO NOT Define ME Though ... !!!

But Poems I'm Writing ...
Sometimes Have ... Rap Flow ...

Which Just Goes To Show ...
That ... Everything Rap ...
Ain't About Killing Blacks ... !!!

So ... To ALL YOU KIDS ...
I Hope You're HEARING THAT ... !!!!!!

I Try To Spit FACTS ...
To Prove To Young Blacks ...
To .... " Of Course " ....

... " Mind The GAP " ... !!!!!

WATCH OUT For The Trap ... !!!
Cos' That's What MP's Want ...
TRUST ME ... BELIEVE That ... !!!!!!

These Words Are The TRUTH ... !!!

STOP Acting UNCOUTH ...
And Most of All ....

............ " STOP" ......... !!!!!!!!

All This KILLING OF YOUTH ...
Cos' This ... Simply Proves ...
You Know NOT What YOU DO .... !!!

Ohhhh ........
You May Have ... "Your Crew" ...

But When PRESSURE Comes ... !!!
I Hope They're All TRUE ... ?!?
Cos' When The Cops Come ... !!!
It May Just Be .... YOU ....
Who Sits In THE DOCK ...
In A ....... Quiet Courtroom .................................................

Orlando ... May BLOOM ...
But Now YOU SEE Gloom ....................................................................
Cos' ... Bars And A CELL ...
Are Now Your BEDROOM ... !?!

So ....
How Does THAT Sound ... ?!?

A Fate Filled With DOOM ... !!!
A Life ... " UPSIDE DOWN " ...
Kind of Like A Mushroom ... ?

These Are ...
Some of The Reasons ...
I TRY To Be TRUE ... !!!!!!!

Cos' Life's NEVER EASY ...
And CAN Leave You .... "BLUE" .... !!!

But ...... ???

This Could POSSIBLY BE ... ???
Cos' You're ... FAKE AND UNTRUE ... ?!?

And LIE TO YOURSELF .....
When Dealing With ... " YOU " ...

Which Leads You To LYING ...
To Others In View .....

Just Like These FAKE PEOPLE ....
In Life ... Like To DO ... !!!!

I'm From The OLD SKOOL ...
Where Lying Was Deemed ...
To Be Something For FOOLS ... !!!!

But ...
Let Me Just STRESS ... !!!
I've Lied In My Youth .... !!!

But NOW Have The VIRTUE ...
of ... Telling THE TRUTH ... !!!!!!

Even IF It HURTS YOU ... !!!
Or IF It ... HURTS ME ... !!!

But TRUTH In The End ...
Is How Things SHOULD BE ... !!!!

Cos' Then We MIGHT SEE ...
It's Pointless To RUN FROM ...

........... " REALITY " ......... ???!???

In The End How You Be ...
Might Leave You At SEA ... !!!
In Your NEW POWER BOAT ...
WITHOUT ... Any Key ... !!!!

DRIFTING ... NOT Sinking ...
Looking For A ... " QUAY " ... !!!

But NONE Are In Sight ...............................

You're Now In A Plight ...
Cos' Your Fakeness Has Left You ...
DARKENED ... Like THE NIGHT ... !!!

Ready To SWITCH ...
But YOU TURNED OFF THE LIGHT ... !!!!!

Well ... That's My INSIGHT ...
Into Doing ... What's RIGHT ... !!!!!!

I've Left You Some Clues ...
To ... Look INTO YOU ...

So .....
What Will You FIND ... ???

When You Look INTO YOU .. !?!

Are You ..........

" FAKE or ...........
Are You TRUE ... ??? "
