Ya Know …..

This Is A Question That Leaves Me Confused … ???

The Question Is THIS ... " What Can YOU DO " … ?!?

Now Trust Me Folks I'm NOT Here To ABUSE … !!!
But Come On Now Don't Act The FOOL … !!!!!

Don't Be SURPRISED When … " Drug Filled Highs " … !!!
Slowly …………….. subside ………...................................

And Modern Life Leaves You … " Feeling " …

... " PAIN and STRIFE " ... !!!

It Seems These Days That … riSING Tides ...
And Government LIES Have Made Some People" ...

………. " REALISE " ……… !!!!!!!!!!

Life Is NOT About MAD Cash Cocaine, Speed, or … Afghan Hash … !!!
Life Is … So Much MORE Than THAT … !!!!!

So Ask Yourself What Can You Do … ?
To BETTER Things For ME and YOU … !!!

Going To School Is Many's View ... !!!

Okay That's Cool … !!!
But WHO Has Built These … " INSTITUTES of Education " ...

Government Taxation … ???

Take Your Time ...................................................................
It's NOT A Crime To Let These Thoughts Run Through Your Mind …

How Many Youth Will Get The Chance ...
To ... Dance The Dance THAT Rich Kids Do … !?!
While Watching Daddy FILL His BOOTS … !!!!!!

It's Just A Question ...
Like THIS ONE ... " What Can You Do " … ?

How About This DON'T Live For YOU … !!!!

Live For Those Who Surround You … !!!

These Days That's HARD ...
I KNOW … That's TRUE … !!!

But Here's A Quote To Give You … " Clues " …
On How To CHANGE These Attitudes ... !!!!

"The Needs of THE MANY,
OUTWEIGH The Needs of The Few, Or THE ONE !"

Take That IN DON'T Spit But CHEW … !!!!!

These Words Make Me Want To DO …
Things Like REASON ... With Our Youth … !!!

NOT Preach or Train But Try To Explain …
How To KEEP A … Sense-Filled Brain … !!!

And How To COPE With Mental Pain ...

And Let Them KNOW Life's NOT A Game … !!!

It's HARD These Days To Make That Move …
Because BUREAUCRATS Try … "STOPPING You" … !!!!!

That's The Way They Like To Be ...
But TRUST ME Folks They WON'T Stop Me … !!!!!

From Trying To Use My Poetry ...
To Get To The Few Who HEED My Speech …

So What About YOU … ???
... " What Can YOU DO " … ?!?

Try Being … TRUE … !!!
With Friends and People You Speak To … !!!

That's Just The START … !!!!!

Because Change Won't Come From Smart Remarks … !!!!!
While You Sit In Your … " PHAT Yard " … !!!!!

Those Who Do This THINK They're Smart … !!!!!

Until Their World Is RIPPED ... A P A R T … !!!!!

Nowadays In MANY Ways … !!!
Natures' ANGER'S On DISPLAY … !!!!

Earthquakes And WILD Hurricanes … !!!!!

See These Are Things WE CAN'T … Ignore … !!!!!!!!!!
Money Wars Leave People … " POOR " … !!!!!

While People Sit And Now … ARGUE …

"Come on man, what can you do ?"

NOT EVERYONE ... Is BAD Out There … !!!
But Hear Me CLOSE Please Be PREPARED … !!!!!

Because Snakes Are Lurking And Will DARE …
To THREATEN You And Make You SCARED … !!!!!

So DON'T Just Let Them DO YOUR SHARE …. !!!
And Show The Moaners That YOU CARE ...

And Want RID of … " New Tony Blairs !!! " …

The Only Thing Constant Is Simply …. " CHANGE " ….
So DON'T Just Sit There ... " RE - ARRANGE " …

And Make Our World A BETTER PLACE … !!!!

Just REMEMBER Folks ...
These Are …" MY VIEWS " …

So Take Them IN I've Given Clues …
And Answers ... TOO ... !!!!

To YES … THAT Question …

....... " What Can You Do ? " .......
