22 Jul 2016 – Streets I Only Go

I don’t want your fancy car,
and I don’t want your wife.
I say let’s just raise the bar
and spare each other’s life.

‘Better’ means the lynchings stopped,
and people now can vote.
Don’t mean I’m not scared of cops –
‘cuz that my friend’s a joke.

Spare that condescending smile,
pretending that you know.
You ain’t never walked a mile
down streets I only go.
