Zoom in closer
It’s as clear as a jumbo screen
Get rich or die younger
Is the objective in streets
In high definition

Not amused by funny
City transportation is tumbling
With high velocity; and
Unlawful might
Parading clowns to jail by night
Death is the only alternative now
In high definition

Ignorance has ruined the day
Intelligence has fled away
Into the night’s air
Abandoning a new day
With no traces of existence
Horror is the daily mission
Education is the new fight
But, hasn’t it always been.
