Art is Dead

I turned on the radio

late last night

and heard some rapper

get ready to fight.

Somebody else’s fault

that he’s in his position,

now he’s ready to

increase business

for the mortician.

Angry young men

with a fleet of Mercedes Benz

can’t understand the

mixed message that it sends.

Filling their noses

with the white devil,

that brings their egos

to a whole new level.

Old school is saying

best to learn

from our mistakes,

while all that the

young studs

see is the money

they can make.

Art is dead,

now it’s all about the cash.

Number One today

then thrown out

with tomorrows trash.

  2. While I’m not a fan of rap, I’ve never lived life in a Black Man’s body. I try not to judge.

    1. It has nothing to do with colour, there are many white rappers.
