If Time Waits For NO MAN ... ?!?

I'm Waiting For The Time ...
When The Young Who LIVE For VIOLENCE ...
Get Fed LESS Violent Rhymes ... !!
Rhymes That DO NOT GLAMOURISE ... !!!
The Usage of A Nine... ... ... Millimetre Gun ... !!!!!
Cos' When The Shooting's Done ...
A Bullet IN Your Ribcage Is ANYTHING But Fun ... !!!!!

THINK About YOUR MUM When You Are On The RUN ..................
NOT Just From Those Who SHOT YOU Son But Now From Policeman ... !!!

I Wonder WHY You Did It ... ?!?
Well TIME Has Many Minutes For Parents Graveyard Visits ... !!!!!
The Problem Is Our Burial Grounds Are BEYOND ... " City Limits " ... !!!

Kids Are DYING From Gunplay ... !!!
BEFORE Their Parents Final Days ... ?!?
So What Now Do The Governments Say ... ???

... "It's RAP that's made things be this way !" ...

Well WHAT ABOUT Their WAR TIRADES ... ?!?
These Plans Are Where DISASTER Lays ... !!!!!

But When It's THEM AH It's Okay ... !!!

Well Read The Words On This Next Page ... !!!
THEIR ACTIONS Must Take SOME of the Blame ... !?!

Just Like Some Music Heard Today ...
From Gangsta' Rap That Sounds The Same ... !!!
To ... Movie Images On DISPLAY ... !!!

But These Are Part of Business Games ...
Contracts DEFINE Which Songs Get Played ... !!!!!
From TV Shows To ... Radioplay ...

TRUST ME Those ARE Words of TRUTH ...
Plans Are Structured In Business Rooms ...
To Send Out Messages FILLED WITH DOOM ... !!!
And Then NEXT THING You Hear The BOOM ... !?!

YES That's Right From YOUR Bedroom ... !?!

You Start To WEEP But Then YOU HEAR ... " TUNE !!! " …
BANG ... Did I BURST Your Nice Ballon ... ?!?

That's My WARNING DON'T ASSUME ...
That You're IMPERVIOUS From Such Gloom ... !!!!!!

I'm SAYING THIS ... Certain Lyrics ...
Can Get Your Mind To Play SICK Tricks ... !!!!!

YES ALL of Us NOT Just The Kids ... !!!!!!

When You Were A Youth Were You EQUIPPED ... ?
To ... Dissect Things You Saw As A Kid ... ?

DON'T LIE To YOURSELF Be REAL About THIS ... !!!
And Then You'll See Like ... " Pick 'n' Mix " ...
Swallowing ... TOO MUCH ...
Can Leave Your Teeth NEEDING A FIX ... !!!
As If You'd Been Punched By An IRON FIST ... !!!!!

I BEG YOU Whether Young Or Old ...
Take In Things MORE POSITIVE ... !!!!!

ENLIST Your Brain To TAKE THE STRAIN ... !!!
DON'T Be Like Ben Man ... CHANGE Your Lane ... !!!

BEFORE Your Life Starts Dealing PAIN ... !!!
Cos' Things WON'T BE The Same AGAIN ... !!!
Cos' The Blood of A LOVED One Has Been Drained ...
And Now You Hear ... "Objection SUSTAINED !” …

SEE That's The Game Play With Your BRAIN ... !!!
NOT Bullets And Guns You'll Just Get BLAMED ...
Or NEVER LOOK ... The Same AGAIN ... !!!

I Want Love And PEACE In My Lifetime ...
NOT DEATH And PAIN And A Life of GRIME ... !!!

Listen To Things That FEED Your Mind ...
With Words of WISDOM NOT Packing A Nine ... !!!!!!

Try TV Shows With CONSCIOUS Signs ...
You May Just Learn From Things You'll Find ... ?
How To KEEP YOUR PLACE Within Mankind ... !!!!
