Best Tone Jaxson Poems

Look at my face, battered, BRUISED 
U say I mean a lot to YOU? 

How can that BE? 
It’s hard to SEE
Thru these black eyes of mine……

I cain’t COPE
I need some DOPE
I’m better now since I’ve given up HOPE
I just don’t KNOW
What you do to me……

I crave a PORT
My time is SHORT

Know what I MEAN?
You’re killing ME

Please pass the DOPE
I still cain’t COPE
I’m better now just leave me to CHOKE

Cuz I have no sensation nor inclination to do the right thang
