Have you ever noticed a coca leaf or poppy field plantation
 within city limits? Can you visualize the enslaved
 that would work those fields? The real bad guy,
 disappears like cigarette smoke in the wind!

Here's the portrait of truth...
not the one thats been Photoshop'd into your beliefs...
This is as sexy as it gets!

Commodity is King...

Inner-city kids are viewed as the sole proprieter
To the drug pandemic..not so
They don't even sell sells itself?

What they are is slaves, that would take lashes
That bare scars to their newborn.
Master(politicians), loaded his plane on foreign soil
And unloaded the commodity upon the Metropolitan Aboriginals
what he didn't expect the Aboriginals, all, 
would not develop a sweet tooth for nose candy!
Some would become Hero's for never powdering their nose
Or defiling their masculinity by putting the glass genital to his lips...
Master didn't anticipate the pawn making it to the other side of the board, 
gaining power and a surreal prominence.

 No one dreams of being a  curb-server( Street Pharmacist)
But money walking up to you, 
Is a marketing genius...compared to wish'd sandwiches!

Before master and their foreign constituents,
Cocaine was a word, at best, a picture.
Man made snow...along with it a recipe,
To cook up an instant high...The media named her "CRACK"
The Aboriginals didn't name The Master's baby!


DUMB ASS drug dealers couldn't have possibly 
engineered this ingenuity....who accidentally mixes baking soda, 
coca powder (after bring extracted from a green leaf),
and H20, with the element of heat? Chemical engineers?
I'm sure it wasn't the Aboriginals, with a public Christopher Columbus education


It wasnt until the Children of politics fled their picket fences
And was welcomed into the land of The Aboriginals
For recreational use that laws would change,
Punishable to where the murderer paroles, before the drug-smith. 
The crack houses are the Wal-Greens, Wal-Marts, CVS'...
Where addiction is a prescription from a Dr.
 who invests in the stock, he's prescribing... that will never heal the ailment!
24 hours, 7 days a week, including holidays, rain, snow, or sleet, 
They're accumulating more fiends legally!

Commodity is KING!

    Many truths my friend. unfortunately I walked this road in my youth. Truth be told cigarettes is just as hard an addiction as cocaine. Crack sacred me so bad by its power that I quit cold turkey one day but cancer sticks took me many years. It was the Lord who gave me the strength I couldn't find on my own along with the love of a good women. It will be fifteen years next month since I realized the human body is a temple of God.

    WOW! Marlon, this so porfound. You have spoken nothing but the truth. For many years I lived in the big city. They say, that back in the fifties and sixties. Noboby cared who used drugs in the city. They would die of overdoses, the were just poor kids. It was until it started hitting The kids in the Subbarbs of Rich people That things started to change, but we still have a problem. Thanks for sharing this with us. Happy New year. Lucy
