  1. Poetry is another medium to play with rythem and philosophy, it starts to work for ya with a bit of practice, play music, that's why it's a toy and a laser

  2. Reduce reuse recycle haha who needs the new shit, this is the past present and future shit

  3. A poet sits on a bench and writes his poem
    (captain of the poets, so listen)

    Watch me grab my patterns of thought
    In permanent ink on slabs of bark
    A train riding through the middle of your mind
    Planted down in my spinal tappin your body
    Mappin with vinyl life
    (turntables) illuminate
    (the finer things) spinnin underground casin
    Things will never just be the same old thing
    Forever revolutionizing the scene, a poet
    You know it, when I flow it get your action on appeal
    (like a top quarterback)
    Attend your line with a hard ass mind and a hype that's rhyme
    Feel me, writing the book of my life
    With a bypass surgical heart implant
    Where the art is kept
    Swept, get, past the front door
    Where the mass minister, sinister
    Never that priest, east to west we blast and meet ya
    With hands to me to expand the legacy
    That will hype and chill where the gates at
    It's amazing to elevate, allocate, final truncate
    With the feature to play back

    My fate chose to follow me this far
    A shadow came with every step as life revealed the dark
    A guardian, a hell's angel, tested my fate
    And they be, unsure of every move that I would make
    And I ignore, sometimes listen
    On every mission we explore, the outs and ins
    Just like sailors on the shore
    A poet riding the wave of metaphors
    Stop to dock by the bay and write an editorial
    Life wasn't easy, tribe unique we are soul survivors
    I done seen things, eyes of a deep sea diver
    Mister mystery missin a word to describe, i'm
    Sittin patiently waitin for earth to enlighten my
    My destiny inspired every quote
    It met me at this crossroad just tryin to let me know
    It's more to grow
    Mean what I said in chan eleven flow
    And always check for signals, internet has the info

    Maybe the legacy i-n check
    Will be (my legacy lives)
    the impression I leave on the people who listen to music I make
    Take it or leave it believe it or not
    Got my man on the side to prove this point
    Forges strong in the family tree
    Roots are stronger than enemy's hate
    So relate to me if you can't
    Pledge your thoughts in a garden with freedom of speech
    To each his own, metrinome
    Childrens grow to know the world
    Even home with the young mind
    Looking for answers in the truth
    My music will guide you through time
    Used to be that kid on the bench in the park writin to figure out life
    Now I'm a man on the mic who's doin his mark, thinking of kids and a wife
    It's important to me to know my days on earth mean something more
    Than a couple songs I made that played in basement stereos galore
    Aerial views of crews I knew and memory bank that hourglass
    Thinking of lessons learned as tables turned another hour pass
    Legacy's left while pen strokes enlightenment from a future class
    So many young and talented broke livin l.a. life with a bus pass
    Travelling to the open mic spots anywhere they can bust at

    It's hard to keep the peace without dealing with the war
    It's hard to feel you've got it all when you can get more
    But just think back, way back when when you had none
    And wanted some, and we were hungry as they come
    Just dumb and young, and young and dumb and we had fun
    In lemmard park, and harvard park and leffard park
    Specific start, was 84 I was only nine
    Been writin rhymes and in these times eligh
    I see why people quit, they don't see the benefits
    Only in it to get rich, hit it big or forfeit
    And off course is the politics
    Collegeship went on the back burner
    Didn't get a scholarship even though I was a fast learner
    (but I was working)
    Searchin for the undisputed truth
    Experience, I've had more data for the proof
    And here he is just have again, back in the loot
    Buried in the books but he's weary of their roots

    (captain of the poets, so listen)
