PAD Challenge Day 21: Cha-ching
PAD Challenge Day 21: Write a sound poem.
For the love of money,
people tend to do the
most treacherous things.
They’ll tell a tale
Sell some tail
Pimp their spouse and kids
Execute a block for drug bids
Pay you to remain on “the hush”
Extract their soul from in God we trust
Cut out the middleman and still cheat you
Rob you to pay another brother
Place a price over your head then send
another brother to check for a silent
pulse to make sure you’re dead.....
Dead as the dead presidents
God knows people love Big Bens
but nothing ever stops them from
being lovers and friends
when it comes to Jacksons, Lincolns,
Washingtons and Hamiltons.
We all want ‘em.
We all need ‘em.
We all can’t survive without ‘em.
And when we got ‘em, like Big said,
“mo’ money, mo’ problems”.
With money coming and going,
we can’t always solve ‘em.
To hell with change,
Jay-Z and JD said “money ain’t a thang”
especially when you’re in your
own lane and doing your damn thang.
Until you place a stack in their face
Stand back and ask
“What will you do for this gain?”
Hell, people will turn their back on you
for a couple of dollars or two.
And they ain't even gotta be mad at you.
‘Cause the rich ain’t got enough of it.
They wanna be at the top of a list.
The po’ ain’t got it all.
They gotta sell food stamps to
pay Peter and Paul.
Investments or zilch
Debit or credit
Wired or cold hard cash
It doesn’t take a Discover
to discover what an
about securing the bag
because social security
may not be security at all.....
