In Truth, He Lies

"Kevin" Drug buy, for one it went good. Drug buy, for one it went bad. You see Kevin, wore high heeled sneakers. You see Kevin, was his junkies' keeper. But one day; the junkie didn't have it, so Kevin didn't give it, but the junkie had to have it, but Kevin didn't get it. So when his beeper beeped beeped, the Junkie popped popped. And when his beeper beeped beeped. his heart beat beat, "Stopped." ______________________________________________________________ “In Truth, He Lies” (Kevin’s Funeral) Preacher screams, "He's goin’ to heaven",, Kendra cries, "Wake up Kevin",, Momma sighs, "Baby, don't cry",, Grandma weeps, "Kevin's asleep",, Grandpa states, "Resting his eyes",, But when Momma screams, "wake up Kevin",, Grandpa weeps, and then we all cry, But to me, It don't matter none. Whether Kevin's in Hell, for what he's done. But the truth is, Kevin lies. In that casket, before my eyes, And the coffin keeps, such still remains. But will the coffin keep, what still remains? NoelsArt Comments: Above is a poem about Kevin, a drug dealer. Added this week is Kevin’s Funeral poem. FEEDBACK WELCOME
