Crazy On A Thursday

Everyday is a new day Except Thursday the symptom always replay Madness, mental instability, psychological disorder. Call it what you may It’s the same thing every Thursday Her frienenemies taunted and teased her all day long But on Thursday, they singing a different song. A new girl came badder than the rest Decided to give Swofiyah a test She didn’t know the history behind the face Even though they warned her “gal mind your place If you continue to trouble Swofiyah When Thursday come, you know She a go do to you But she didn’t listen With exposed pearly white glistening She continue teasing She was having fun But the rest couldn’t wait to see Thursday come Swofiyah didn’t realized what was going on All day she felt tired and sleepy, she a yawn Thinking how lovely it would be to go back to her yard Thursday came her mind clear What did the little heifer said I did not hear “Fool, fool mad eeks go to Bellevue?” Look how I’m going to make her think Me a work Voodoo Come here Pearly White you Know me never trouble you But every time you see me You say sump’m Look how you going to feel the little gal slap Straight up to the grand father and back Sit down there, let me fix my handicap She went into her bag and took out some reinforcers Pointing them to Pearly White who stood there frozen I have the little boy and the big man teeth rattler The mother and the father jaw buster The grandmother and the grandfather neck breaker Which one you want to sample? Because you need to be taught a lessen Pearly White saw her eyes for the first time The color had changed and evil lurking behind Darn it, I should have listened to what they say Look at this obeah raas, is where she going with those, anyway? What! You don’t know I can read mind too If you say something else, I’m going to hit you She decided to forego the reinforcers Bent down and picked up the silencer But as she looked up, she sight Pearly White well shaped and beautiful no overbite She reached out and picked up the grandfather neck breaker Strapped it on and said to Pearly White This will teach you a lesson She raised her hand and before Pearly could breathe Wham! There goes the teeth She took up her toy and aimed it at Pearly knees Pulled the trigger and Pearly body hit the street As Pearly wiggled from the pain She replaced her tools and walked away having no shame She stopped and turned to face the dumfounded crowd Remember, anybody trouble me, as you see today Just tell them to wait until Thursday.
