All that Pettiness

9/14/21 Street and book smart With a good heart To make an impact I took part This ain't a haiku Why are you so worried about what I do I'm nothing like you Often I've been stabbed in the back and lied to Full of emptiness And penniless Never mind all that pettiness So caught up on who is the sexiest And wealthiest Meanwhile such actions can be the deadliest Trying to salt my name, even though I've been the friendliest Old news, I pay no attention to it Such weakness is kept dead, no need to let it live No good like Acid Reflux All these cheap f***s Taking advantage of others assuming they won't speak up I don't care about your teacups Or if you own three trucks Good on you if you got some useful "free stuff" It wasn't always too equal People obsessed with blue people Quickly displaying true evil Had to work on a budget Trying to stay away from drama and dumb s*** In a world full of corruption and little if any justice From here to way beyond Nantucket Sad thing is most people judge quick Another lonely night and sip of beer Listen here It all has been far from crystal clear And not always what it appears In my heart, I hold my sisters dear As I travel around with little fear On a planet that is a sphere Got to make the best of it, before it all disappears Honestly, I can't be financially set off this career Or afford to go crazy like Britney Spears In fact All that B.S. I ain't with that Break 'em apart like a Kit-Kat Staying alert not so quick to sit back
